Mini Post: T-ball


Our second season of Tball finished up.  Jacob was too young to play in the same league as Vincent and Landen so he played for the city.  Lets just say, I'm looking forward to having them all in the same league next year.

Vincent and Landen played for the Cardinals.



They improved a lot since their last time playing.

Fielding....



batting...

Not sure what's up with Vincents stance?!


and running....


I don't know what was up with the lighting during this particular game but it affected the camera and most of the pictures didn't turn out.  But I thought this had kind of a neat effect.






Jacob played for the Dodgers





He was very excited to play a sport like his brothers.  But during practice he would rather be playing WITH his brothers instead of practicing. 


He didn't quite have a go-get-it attitude and he pretty much jogged the bases rather than ran them.  But it was a good first season for Jacob.






And his "at bat" face was hilarious.  Such determination.


He received a metal for his year and a hug from his biggest fan



And what a cute little fan Cruz was.  All season.  He also didn't know how to sit still and watch the game!   Too bad he won't be old enough to play next year either.  So another year of watching is in his future.

Mini Post: Awanas

Catching up on life through several mini posts.

First up.

Awanas,

My boys finished their second year of Awanas.  They all love it!  Jacob loved being a Cubbie with his older brothers.  Vincent did an awesome job at memorizing the verses.  He caught on so quickly and would know the verse after practicing only a couple of times.

Cruz hung out in the nursery every Wednesday night.  He will graduate to the Puggles class with all of the other 2 year olds next year.






I help out in with the Sparks (which consist of kindergarten through 2nd grade) Which means Vincent and Landen will be in Sparks next year.  I'm excited to to be able witness them grow and learn in Sparks next year.






They had an awards ceremony, where they sang a couple of songs and received a ribbon for completing their book.

Teacher Mark was Landen's leader for both of his Cubbie years.  He was a perfect leader for Landen.





My handsome Cubbies!!!
