Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks
I don't care if I ever get back...
Are you humming along?
We have officially begun Little League at the Wood house. Mark played baseball through college and Ryan was throwing a baseball before he could walk so I knew this day would come. I just honestly can't believe he's big enough...ahem, I'm OLD enough...to have a Little Leaguer!
Ryan is lovin' him some baseball right now. He is playing coach pitch this year and having a blast at the practices. He had his first scrimmage last week and I was so proud of him for many, many reasons. Not just because he marched right out there and got a hit each time (he smoked one to center field:-)). Not because he was excellent on defense and made a couple of really great throws; but, because his shyness didn't come into play AT ALL!! When I think about the past 6 and 1/2 years with my little man it makes me want to tear up. Every new thing he tries each year is always a little bit of a challenge until he starts to feel comfortable. But with baseball, he didn't know anyone on his team, he's never played coach pitch before, worn cleats or a helmet and he did it! There were no tears or hesitation or embarrassment from him at all. This is a really great day! I think he is coming out of his shell a little bit and I am very proud of him. In fact, he has been getting warnings at school for talking-that's right TALKING TOO MUCH!! Those of you that know Ryan know how quiet he is in front of adults so this is a whole new world for Mark and I.
Cheering on big brother
Ryan I hope you have a fantastic season this year. You make your momma proud!
'cause we'll root, root, root for the home team...If they don't win it's a shame. For it's ONE, TWO, THREE strikes you're out at the Old...Ball...game!!
