Season over

Taylor played her last game last night. The parents said we won, but I was so busy coaching that I wasn't to worried about it. No kids hit me with the ball last night, so that was good. Taylor again got two hits and did a pretty good job.
I don't know about Taylor, but I am sure going to miss Baseball.

Game 7

Last night's game was an old fashioned blow-out. The other team had only 7 players and only one of them could hit it over the infield (And Dakota caught those) One of our players, after the first inning, came up to me and said he was keeping score and said that the score was 13-4 (which I believe).

That was nice because I was the pitcher! I was very nervous about it because I was scared that I wouldn't get the ball in a good position for the kids to hit. Everyone seemed to hit well, even a couple of kids that don't normally hit so I was very happy. The one thing that didn't make me happy was at the top of the second, I kid hit the ball right where it counts and I was down for a minute. Fortunately, I got better at moving after that.

We played three innings since the game went so fast. Taylor went 3-3 and had a pretty good game.

Coach Bair cannot be at the next game, which is the last game of the season, so I am coaching that night. Even Dakota will not be there. Great, first game as a coach and I do not have the star player. Oh well, it will be fun.

Summer Fun!

Well, we have been having a fun summer down here. Taylor just finished up two weeks worth of swimming lessons. By the end, she was jumping off the diving board into 8 ft. deep water. And swimming the entire length of the pool. She has been swimming almost every day for two weeks. If not at lessons, then at the gym where Scott and I work out.

Shaylie has really wanted to get in as well, so on Friday we took the whole family to the Big Swimming Pool. Shaylie had a blast, but she is far too fearless of the water. She doesn't ever want anybody to hold on to her, but whenever she struggles free from us, she goes under, of course. I think she is a water baby, just like her sister.

We'd like to have a swimming pool in the backyard, but I have been hesitant to get one this year because of Shaylie. I am afraid that she would not be safe with that around. But it is getting quite hot and the only way to cool off is to get wet. With the drought, we are trying not to run the sprinklers so much, so we'll have to come up with a plan.

Scott and I are still working out at the gym, although, I took most of last week off, because of the shot they gave me on Monday. I don't think it helped much, and in fact, it hurt worse for about 5 days, but they say that is normal. I don't know what is normal anymore. I am just so tired of it. I think the workout is helping the most of all the treatments I've had. So I'm going to keep it up! If nothing else, I'll be in great shape with a lame back.

Happy Father's Day to Scott! You are a terrific dad to our girls and we love you so much!

Happy Father's Day to the Grandpa's as well! We love you too!

Well, I'm sorry we haven't kept up on the pictures lately. We have oodles to put on, but they take so much editing to get them ready for the internet that it is hard to find time to do it. But I will get some on for sure, in the next little while. We have some great ones of the trip we took to the zoo, while visiting GrMama J's house. Keep checking.

Love you all! Thanks for reading our pages, and write to us when you can!

Game 6

Today was the last Saturday game, and fortunately, we had the shade field for the game, which was great. Taylor again got two good hits and could of had a double except for the fact that she hit it straight up the middle and the center fielder was running straight towards that base. As usual, we did not take advantage of throwing errors as they are little kids.

Once again, the other team had an idiot as a coach. When Dakota got up in the first inning to hit, the coach blocked his hit so that it stayed in the infield, we still had him run all the way around. Kids get thrown off by that stuff. What really made me mad was that when the other team hit the ball in the outfield, our kids would throw it to the pitcher (who is the other teams coach), and the play should be dead. Should is the key word. Their coach would refuse to catch the ball (in fact he would get out of the way of it), then would tell his kids to take extra bases, he once had a kid take two bases. Our coach was pretty upset, because on top of that, whoever they put in as catcher could not throw, so our coach has to run every time to get the pitch.

So in the second inning, we turned off the niceness. We would tag kids out and have them sit down, we would throw people out. When we came up to bat, if they had a throwing error, we took an extra bases. One of our players, who never listens to us anyway, took three bases on a throwing error. The only outs they got on us were the four strikeouts that we gave up. We got them out about 8 times. It was nice to be able to say after that game that "Yes kids, we won that game."

Game 5

Well, it had to happen eventually. We played a much better team and they pretty much destroyed us. We only got them out three times the whole game. The cool thing was, Taylor was playing first base and got someone out! She also got two hits to keep her perfect batting going. Unfortunately, they got us out about 10 times (which was more that the rest of the season combined). Dakota got two more grand slam home runs.

Well, 4-1 is a very good record and I doubt that there are any other teams as good as that one.

Game 4

Taylor hit a double tonight! She hit the ball really hard in to the outfield! I was first base coach, as usual, and I told her to keep running to second. It kind of shocked her for a second but she kept running. The kids had a little bit of trouble hitting tonight, but they still did well. After the game was team pictures. Coack Bair asked me to be in the team picture, since I am always helping out. I felt pretty honored. Coach gave me a team hat too, it doesn't fit, but who cares. I just hope that I don't look too silly in the picture. Taylor went 2-2 on the night.

New Layout

As you can see, we have changed our front page! I will be changing the rest of the pages to match as soon as I have time! Hope you like it!

Game 3

Once again, our team proved that they are great hitters. Everyone got hits again today, and we only had two outs the whole game. Dakota, our first baseman, got 6-7 kids out on his own, so if we were keeping score, we won by a pretty large margin. Taylor again got two good hits and is batting 1.000 on the year. She has scored 4 out of 6 times on the year and has 6 RBI's. Dakota, has hit 4 home runs and has 15 RBI's, he is the coach's son and he is ready for the next league.
