fall ball

Since today was the last day of the season, I thought I'd better pull out the camera for the first time.  Oops!  We had the first game of the day so we had to get the field ready.  The kids were excited to help!
Since fall ball isn't as formal as the spring season, there are no formal pictures.  I begged the coach (Jason), hehe, to let us get a picture before the game.  He agreed to it and then when I reminded him of it today, he said I better be quick.  He took his job as coach very seriously and wasn't going to make anyone wait for the team on account of a picture.  Sheesh!

We could not have asked for a better team this year.  The kids were much more well behaved and interested in playing than the kids on his t-ball team last year!

Bryce really enjoys baseball.  He's a good listener and a quick learner.

There weren't enough boys to make a league for t-ball and coach pitch for the fall so they combined them and it was all coach pitch.  Bryce really liked this so I think we'll skip t-ball this spring and do coach pitch again!

Bryce and Jason have been working on hitting.  He makes contact with the ball quite often, but he fouls most of the off.  Poor Bryce is so small that when he does get a good hit they don't go far because he's so little and can't get much power behind it.  But boy does he try! 

We handed out trophies and celebrated with cupcakes after the game today!

Even Emmy got a cupcake.  We're so thankful to Jason's parents and my parents for helping out with Emmy during the games this season.  Since Jason was coaching and I was in the dugout as the team mom, it was hard for me to keep an eye on Emmy and entertain her.

Bryce and his preschool buddy Henry and his brother Peter.

Way to go Braves!

So cute! I imagine we'll be doing the same thing in a few years. I actually love baseball so I'm okay with that :)

They are so stinkin' cute! I am glad he had a great season, and he looks so proud of his trophy! Way to go Bryce.

(your pictures, late or not, are as always awesome! Love the one of the boys lined up against the fence!)
