Batter Up!

Yes, I was volun-told I was a coach for our girl’s T-Ball team. Its OK though, I enjoy baseball and played a lot of it when I was a kid. Its fun(ny) and rewarding and more than just a little amusing to coach kids at this age and this skill level.

But it doesn’t mean coaching these youngsters is all fun and games!

It seems every day  I have to put on my Tom Hanks hat to coach and council some kids on this….

Its not the big leagues after all.

Every day we see some of this…

…and a lot of this….

t ball play

No, actually most of our team doesn’t throw that well.

But its all good.

Its all fun!

Its no stress.

Everyone bats, and everyone hits.

Everyone scores.

And everyone wins.

Smiles, cheers, and high-fives abound every play.

Dylan actually hit the ball the farthest in their game last Friday…not that anyone is measuring such things. (atta girl Dylan!)

Did you see that Daddy?

And while Dylan seems to be a natural behind the bat the way she whacks the ball, Skye seems to be a natural in front of the camera, never missing a chance for a cute pose…

Say Cheese!

Say Cheese!

Here she has just scored her run. Aunt Sue has trained her well!

All in all, it seems to be a great experience for the kids.

Participating in sports can teach youngsters a lot I learned growing up. And this coach just wants them to try their best and have some fun.

They are all All-Stars that way in my book…

Its great to be a kid!
