It's the start of baseball season in Virginia! Mike's coaching again, and both Evan and Drew are on the same team. It really is wonderful to see the three guys play together. Today was their first game, and we all watched, even though it was a chilly 36* outside. Drew did GREAT in his first game ever, and Evan rocked being an experienced leader on the team. The league is counting outs at this advanced level, which is new for us, but our whole team was amazing - they only got tagged out once in the whole 4-inning game! This is going to be a really fun season. Go Rockies!
He hit it to the outfield every time. Power hitter!
Drew's first at-bat ever!
Drew's first score!
Evan is amazing at 1st base.
The little super-fans were there, even though they froze.
Evan's had a fantastic season playing basketball in the Upward league Cobras. His skill has really improved (good job, Coach Dad!), and he's showing great sportsmanship to his teammates and opponents. Even though the kindergarten level doesn't officially keep score, the kids definitely do, and they're pretty sure we rocked each game. Thanks to other parents and siblings, Drew always had someone to play with/distract him, and the babies were never without a willing set of arms. We're definitely looking forward to next year! I didn't take a ton of photos or video, but was lucky to capture some great moments when I did. Happily, each game was pretty much filled with the same highlights from our #5! (Note the socks.)
