Go Sand Gnats!

It's hard to imagine a reason to cheer for sand gnats--or any kind of gnat for that matter--but that was the name of Josh's little league team this season, and boy were we cheering for them! Josh was on a coach pitch team this year with two of his little friends, Adam and Jacob (Logan and Easton--we missed you!). They had a lot of fun together goofing off, and making their coaches crazy! Todd was able to help coach this year, because the realtor thing hasn't really gotten into full swing yet, (if you need to buy or sell a home--he is official now!) and the funeral home thing has finally phased out, and by gosh my husband has had some extra time on his hands! It's been fun watching him coach Josh, and encourage him, and I have been proud of the way that Todd has always been so positive with him and the other boys. I'm amazed at his patience!The boys had tons of fun this year--and the best thing about coach pitch??? They don't make you stop on each base! What does that mean??--HOMERUNS! It was sure hard to get those boys to stop on the bases, even when the ball only went a little ways, they would RUN until someone stopped them!The first ball that Josh hit this year went about 2 feet, but there was no way his dad could tell him to stop on 1st base--he just kept on running, as fast as his legs could go! The boys were all in agreement too; I heard them talking one day at the house, and they were saying, "I don't like to listen to the coach, he tells me to stop--but if I stop I don't get a HOMERUN--so I just keep on going!" So funny! Look at Adam in his catching gear--is that cute or what! Josh couldn't even keep the gear on--it was HUGE on him!I love watching boys play after years and years of watching softball--it will be fun to see Josh progress as he gets older. And even though he is the shortest one on the team--probably by a foot or more--that kid doesn't let anyone or anything get in his way! We are proud of you Joshua for working so hard to get better this year! It's been a fun year of baseball--GO SAND GNATS! Oh, and don't I have the cutest boy--EVER! Especially that toothless grin! Love you Josh! Here's to another great season! One team done--3 more to go...

GOOD GAME!

How cute are those pictures!
That is the next sport on my list for the boys to try. We'll see which one of them stick...
