Spring Sports

 Spring is coming to an end around here. School is almost out, Anna has graduated, and spring sports are wrapping up.

Charlie and Paige both had great seasons in their respective sports.  This was Charlie's 3rd year playing baseball, and the first year of "kid-pitch".  It was a pretty big difference from coach pitch -- but was a lot of fun! We saw Charlie's batting improve all year, and his fielding skills were pretty impressive. =)
I think the highlight of his season was his grand slam! =)

Spring Training

This was Paige's first year of playing softball.  Her league is 1st - 4th grade. Coach pitches to 1st and 2nd graders and kids pitch to 3rd and 4th graders.  Paige was awesome!  After a hitting intervention early in the season, she became a pretty reliable hit at each at bat.  Her throwing improved tremendously, as did her fielding.  The young girls don't get much infield time in her league, so Paige decided she wanted to play catcher.  She did great - and even managed to catch a couple of foul tips for outs!

Game Balls -- the 2 first graders on the team did great!!
Celebrating with ice-cream! =)

And this is how Anna spent most of the games.

Bet you can't do that!!  =)

All-in-all a great spring season!!
