So Isaac's baseball season is in full swing. Since he was 1 1/2 all I've ever done is pitch to him to hit. He's never hit off a tee. Hitting he has down. He's hit some big ones already this season - 2 last game. In his league, the kids get 5 swings. The first 3 or 4 the coach pitches to them and then if they don't hit, they hit off a tee. What I've realized is that I haven't really gone over the rules of the game. Rules of basball, Isaac does not have down. As Isaac was running from 2nd to third base the other night, he began to run like a rabbit. A FREAKIN' RABBIT!! I couldn't believe it. So the big black dude coaching third base told him not to run like a rabbit when he ran home on the next hit. He didn't. HE RAN WITH HIS ARMS ABOVE HIS HEAD LIKE A MONSTER. It was the last out of the game. As the coach had the team together telling them what a good job they did, the 2nd picture is of me asking my kid why he felt as if running like a rabbit was appropriate at that time. I further told him how happy I was the the family's last name was not on the back of his shirt. My wife reminded me that she's also glad that I don't walk around with our last name on my shirts throughout the day as well.
This last game was ALOT better. 2 good hits (one was a sticker hit- coach awards the kids who hit one in the grass with a sticker to go on their helmet - Isaac has 2 now.) He also ran fast on the bases.
Jackson kicks it in his car seat like that all the time. I love it.
I think Makayla is the prettiest girl in the world in her "natural" moments. I love the wind blowing her hair and her just being her.
Jackson kicking it - highlight
Kayla being naturally pretty - highlight
