Well, Spring is here...or is it? I am ready for warmer weather. Heck 60's would be okay with me... This winter coats in the morning and light jackets by afternoon is really getting old. The boys for one thing do not want to wear pants anymore, and trying to get them to wear a winter coat.....ugh too much trouble. PLUS, since most of their jeans have holes in the knees, I am ready for clothes that don't have knees in them!!!
Since Spring is here another round of sports have begun.... Brooklyn is in track once again and for those of you that didn't know or had forgotten, she went to state last year in pole vault, YES you read that right POLE VAULT. She really enjoys it. She is also playing on two softball teams. A competitive team and a rec league team. Playing second base is her favorite (just like her momma) but she also catches and plays short stop. I told her that next year she needed to decide what she was going to play in high school and we needed to focus on that sport. We'll see what she chooses..... She also continues to go to tumbling each week! Cheerleading is over for this season but tryouts for next year will be in May.
Griffin is also playing on two baseball teams. A competitive team and a rec league team as well. He is the catcher and then plays where ever they put him, but 90% of the time catches. He is very good. He did pitch a couple of games last year but usually hit so many batters that they had to take him out...lol...funny but oh so true! I think that everyone is safer when he is behind home plate! He is also playing on a flag football team as well, though it always seems to rain on the weekends so they have only played 2 games and have had 3 rained out.
Candon will play baseball this summer as well and has moved on from t-ball to pitching machine. I am curious to see how well he does with this. He is also playing flag football and has done awesome this year. I even hear the other team asking if they ever take that kid out. Last year he never really grasped the whole idea of grabbing the flags but this year the other team barely has a chance to hand the ball off and Candon has pulled their flags! I think that he averages 3 touchdowns a game. He really does well though spends more time on the ground than on his feet! LOL, it's flag football not tackle and there is usually not anyone even around him. We asked him one day after the game why he kept falling to the ground and he said "I am tackling myself"!
Little Miss Taylyn... well, she is going to try t-ball again this year and was very quick to remind me that I told her last year that if she played again this year that she could have a pink glove, and a pink helmet, and a pink bat, and pink cleats! Gotta love my girlie-girl! She also is still in tumbling once a week and loves going.
Sooooo...I will update some pictures as soon as I can but wanted to make sure to let you all know what is going on with us. We are pretty much taking someone to practice every night and sometimes all 4 are going in different directions and yea I know that it will get even worse but HEY they are very active sporty children and I love to watch them in everything they do! SO look forward to many sports pics to come!
