Busy With Baseball

We've all been pretty busy this last week. With baseball and school coming to an end, not much time to relax. That's not a bad thing, though. The only tough part was battling the heat. Lily and Trevor had a game on Monday, which they both played well. No one is hitting the ball real great, but our practice on Wed. seemed to help this out. I expect a little better next week when we play. Tues. at the kids' school was Field Day. I spent the day helping all of the kids learn to throw a baseball. Lucky I got to spend some time with Lily and Trevor, too. Really a fun week, but glad it's over and the kids are glad to be done with school. They both did really well in the classroom this past school year, though. Nothing for us on Memorial Day, but we have a game next Wed.

First Little League Game of 2010

This year's Little League games got off to a good start on Monday. Despite only having a few practices, and only one as a team, Lily and Trevor did very well. They both did well at the plate, scoring two solid hits a piece. Lily played third base in the first inning, and made some really good plays. She covered her base well, and made good throws to first. The second inning she played center field, and did a great job of backing up the infielders. She actually was getting frustrated because they kept letting the balls get by them and she had to chase them down. Trevor played both innings at catcher. This was a new experience for him, and he handled it well. He made some good stops and covered the plate when he needed to. He realized it's the toughest position, though. Only one game this week, as we have practice tonight, which we need. I'm real happy with how they both played the first game, though.

Play Park

I think summer is finally here. With that, we've been hitting the parks pretty heavy the last few weeks. Also, here's a chance to get Brian some press here on the website. Enjoy these, as it seems he's just keeps growing and growing so fast.

2010 Baseball Trip

I guess I'm not going to go into as much detail about our trip as usual, because i really posted good blogs and tons of pic on my mlblog. Here it is:

'Minoring In Baseball'

We had a great time hitting all of the Minor League teams in Iowa, and a college and MiLB game in Illinois. We also saw the Field of Dreams movie site and went to Norway, IA, which is home to the true story and movie 'The Final Season'. We caught a few foul balls and drank a few beers along the way, too. Not sure where we will go next year, but can't wait.

Lily Earns Third Stripe

Lily recently finished up her Kuk Sool Won for the season. She will start it up again at the beginning of the next school year. Baseball has started and her and Trevor will be concentrating on that for awhile. In her final class, though, Lily has earned herself a third yellow stripe on her belt. She has one more stripe to go then she will be promoted to full yellow belt. She's worked very hard at this and we're all so very proud of her. Pictured is Lily getting promoted, her with some of her friends, and to the right is Lisa giving Trevor some attention so he doesn't feel left out. He didn't care too much when the pizza party started, though.
