Saturdays for me and Little H look a lot like this…
…while the big kids and Daddy spend their Saturdays like this.
JDubbs is coaching both the big kids in t-ball, the reason why we held Jax back to play t-ball one more year rather than go on to coach pitch. We wanted one year where both Jax and Em were on the same team with Daddy coaching them, in case Em didn’t take very well to baseball. So far they’ve both been pretty good about it, and I hope they continue on, but if not we always have memories of this year! Em is always trying her best and Jax does his best to boss everyone around, even kids on the other team!
They both have the potential to be good enough to play, at least for fun, and I’m glad we will have these memories to start them on their baseball career. Not all kids enjoy the slower pace of baseball, but playing is in their blood, on both sides. I think with Daddy there to guide them and Little H and I there to cheer them on, they will continue on long enough to experience all the fun and camaraderie being on a team and baseball/softball has to offer. There are too many fabulous memories for both JDubbs and me to look back on to hope that our kids don’t at least give baseball a try! So far, so good!
I could get used to Saturdays like this.
Both my big kids have had a great start, thanks to their Dad! He has had lots of patience and given up his weekend mornings to encourage them and help them feel successful and proud!
They make quite a team!
