Machine Pitch - Cam 2011

This is Cam's 4th year of baseball with Georgetown Little League. This year he played as a Royal. He enjoys the machine pitch division and so do we. It is more competitive and an actual score is kept unlike with tee-ball. Next year, the real fun begins with kid-pitch. I can't believe how fast Cam is growing up.

Cam has had the same coach for the past couple years, our neighbor, Mark Kopczynski. His son and Cam's best friend, Nate, have been teammates each year. Cam says his favorite part of this year is batting and being the pitcher. He is pretty good at both, probably why he loves them so much! We are so proud of him. He made a huge committment and aside from one church obligation, made every single game. We are looking forward to fall Little League with Hudsonville!

First war wound of the season, on the first night. Cam took a ball to the mouth. We are thankful only a bruised ego and no lost teeth!

Our Littlest Slugger - Case 2011

I am terribly behind in my blogging. As you can see, it took nearly two months to get my last post finally up with pictures. Time is flying by way too fast! Can't I just put our kids in a bubble and stop time? I wish.

Case finally got his turn at sports this spring when we signed him up for Tee ball with GLL. We found out that he is a natural. He loves to play any position and excels at first base. In one game, he got three out of five players out on their first hit. It was a lot of fun to watch all season long.
He had two coaches this year, Coach Derek (you may know him from the WZZM 13 Morning News) and Coach Holly. They were great. Actually, I will be honest. I was more than annoyed with the stringent practices (like 5 more than I would have expected for a first year tee-ball team) and the need to be 30 minutes early for games (really?). However, they did have one of the best tee-ball teams in the league so I guess their hard work and effort paid off, even if it is only little league!
All in all, Case had such a great season. He listened well, played well and showed good sportsmanship. Jeff and I couldn't be more proud.

I was adament to take a picture in front of our blossoming tree that lasts like 3 days. This picture just cracks me up! Cute!
