He looks like such a big guy in his baseball outfit.

On day, Little Man will be a great manager in the big leagues.

He already has his management pose ready.

This old Cadillac was on the southside.  It looks like the same model
that gangsters used to use.  It was in perfect condition.

This is Little Man’s first bat in an organized baseball league.

He walked!

Good eye!

Little Man watched a pitch go by for his second walk.
(his OBP is 1.00)

There was one over throw on a pitch, Little Man stole second.

Another over throw, Little Man on third.

Another over throw, and after a moment’s hesitation (a moment that
seemed like forever) HE STOLE HOME PLATE!

Usually, he was in outfield, as you would expect a new player.

One inning, he played third base.  When the other team tried to steal,
the catcher threw the ball to him.

Little Man caught the ball.  The kid already slid into third.  Little Man
noticed the kid slid too early, and was inches away from the bag.

He reached down and tagged him out!  Side retired.

(we were just happy he caught the ball)

It was super windy!

Little Lady went kite flying with me!  I helped her launch and she did
the rest!

Little Lady was the lead attacker on the field.

Later, she said, “I need a partner”.  Little Lady realized, she needs
another good attacking player. 

This realization shows an appreciation for strategy beyond her years.

Little Lady looks like a bad ass in her new sports goggles.

She also did a great job as goalie.

She looks taller this year.  She is no longer the smallest kid on the field.

Little Man has a swagger way beyond his skills.

As he passed me, Little Man said:  “It’s game time…”

Soon after, lightning was in the distance, moments later,
the rain unleashed.

Little Lady found a new way to wear her jacket
(and warm up her legs).

We had practice at a local Catholic school.  Little Man did better with
his batting.

We spent some quality time at the Center Grove Bantam Football complex.

 It took 20 minutes to get the right helmet.  It was like scene in Harry
Potter when Harry got a wand.  It just took forever.

They kept trying these “little” helmets.  Finally, I told them Little Man
wore and adult bicycle helmet at age 7.  That helped.

He is wearing and XL helmet with little padding.

Little Man is sporting is new football helmet.

Little Lady is sporting her new sports goggles.

Several classes sang happy birthday to Mom, and she even got flowers
from the teachers.

Little Lady needed a reading break, so Mom told her to
play outside.

She bundled up (I was windy and cold), and wrote on
her dry erase board.
