Caleb had his first Miracle League baseball game of the fall season yesterday. His buddy Jacob is playing too, although on a different team. Caleb was so excited to be playing baseball again. I'm still not convinced that he has any clue what baseball is about but he loves to hit the ball and run the bases. And I guess that is all you really need to know.
Caleb and Jacob
Caleb had to warm up that arm before the game, so he and daddy threw the ball back and forth for a few minutes.
Love this picture
Caleb was one of the first kids to bat.
Of course, he knocked this ball right out of the park and then made a quick run to 1st base!
Waiting patiently at 2nd base.
And running to home plate!
While bubba was busy playing ball, Benjamin had to find some fun of his own.
I'm pretty sure he shouldn't be touching this huge piece of construction machinery...but oh well. He kept asking me for the keys so he could turn it on!
After the game we took the boys to the all-accessible playground by the baseball fields.
All-in-all, a good fun-filled Saturday morning.
And, as if baseball and the park wasn't enough fun for one day, we got this little lady yesterday too....
So precious right? We aren't entirely sure what kind of dog she is, hopefully a vet will be able to give us a better idea. All we know is she is cute, sweet, pees all the time, and the boys LOVE her. They. Love. Her. Her name is Izzy.
Puppies are kinda like newborn babies in some ways. Izzy doesn't sleep through the night. She is really alert and playful for about 15 minutes at a time and then she needs a nap. Did I mention she pees a lot? I admit to having a moment of panic after Glenn brought her home. A moment where I asked myself: "What have we done? Why in the world did we just get a PUPPY!?" But she's so cute that it is hard not to love her and the boys are totally smitten with Izzy. They will not/can not leave her alone. Poor Izzy can't even get a decent nap in because the boys can't keep their hands off of her. Truly, having a puppy hasn't been that stressful, it's the Kids + Puppy = STRESS. We are constantly saying things like:
"Caleb get your finger off of her eye."
"Benjamin don't pick her up by her neck."
"Caleb leave her alone so she can eat please."
"Benjamin, she doesn't need your monster truck to play with."
I know that once we have had Izzy awhile the novelty will wear off and the boys will relax a bit...I hope.
He Loves Her.
Sweet baby girl fell asleep in my arms. Ahhh.
