Oh dear...


I have done something I said I would never do. I signed Madalyn up for tee ball through the YMCA. We all know she is only three. And we all know, as well, that three is entirely too young to play any sport really. But growing up at the ball park and other sporting events with her brother has made Madalyn want something of her own to do. Everything is so low key with the Y - one practice and one game a week. So that's not too much. Of course, it costs way too much money for what little bit you do, but she is so excited to be on a team. We had our first game on Tuesday night, and we truly should charge admission for the pure entertainment value.



Perhaps the most rewarding part of the game was when David coached second base. See, at three and four, you need someone standing at every base to remind the kids where to run. So David wanted to play coach. He had the time of his life helping all those little ones run around the bases. He got so excited for his sister whom he lovingly calls "baby girl" with the sweetest little voice in the world. Below is a picture of him sending his sister to third base.


What a fun experience!! So different from David's high pressure ball games. And many more years to come...

Aww, that is the sweetest thing! I love David being the base coach! Our coach's daughter was the first base coach sometimes, and Peyton got a big kick out it. She knew all the kids' names and cheered for them.

That is the sweetest name for David to have for his sister! I am glad she is enjoying it!
