And I Quote

We were pulling out of the driveway a few days ago and Matthew sees the internet service truck and promptly asked is he was coming to our house.  I said no, everything is working fine at our house.  He said, no it's not, he needs to fix out internet so we can watch baseball games on TV. 

We canceled cable several months ago and he is just now missing it.  They really need an a la carte option!!

Baseball Season

It is that time of year again.  Baseball season is upon us.

We strive to be very intentional in what activities we choose to participate in.  We recognize that these years are short, formative and really want these guys to enjoy being kids but baseball is the thing they have both gravitated to so come spring we prepare ourselves for the craziness that is March, April and May.

Willie took the plunge and is helping coach Matthew's team.   He is doing a great job and to say his skill of patience is being tested is the truth but I think even he has been surprised by how much the kids have improved over the course of the season.

Matthew is in prep league, they get to attempt to hit three pitches from the coach and then get a chance off the tee.  He loves it and his skills are certainly getting better.  Many afternoons, when not at the ball field, I find myself playing catch with or pitching too this little guy.  He is developing a pretty good arm and every once in a while he gets a wince from me when I catch one of his zingers.

Kimber was thrilled to finally HAVE A TEAM.  After two years of cheering on big brother he certainly earned his time on the field.  He is not afraid to get in front of a ball and his throw is getting better each week.  He is on the Phillies and I will admit Tee-Ball is the cutest thing to watch!
