Today after summer reading at the library, we cleaned our rooms, helped Mom clean house, and then we got to go swimming for the second day in a row. I mostly played football with one of the boys from my baseball team. Katie floated around in her ring and spun circles. Emma practiced her swimming. Abby floated around in her ring and watched all the people. We had a good time. Here is a picture of Emma and Abby.

My Last Game

Tonight was my last baseball game of the season. We played four innings and our team won 32 – 21! I got on base 3 out of 4 at bats and on my third at bat I hit a home run! I caught the entire game and even got a compliment on one of my plays by the other teams coach. Our team was a lot more on the ball tonight.  Gannon, our first baseman and cleanup hitter, got a ball from the coach for being the Most Valuable Player. Overall, I had a good time and was glad that we were able to win. Go Tornadoes!

Here a couple pictures Mom took tonight.

Fancy Flip Flops

Here are some pictures of the flip flops Emma, Katie, and Mom made. I had no interest in putting flowers on my flip flops!

Playing Baseball

So far this season I am enjoying coach pitch. My team’s name is the Tornadoes. My friend Jack is on another team that doesn’t have a name. He said that they should call themselves the “Storm Stoppers” because they were going to beat our team. We ended up winning when we played them so I guess that wouldn’t have been a good name. So far, I have gotten to be catcher during all but about three batters this season. I am enjoying playing this position and am slowly getting better at blocking and catching. I have also managed to get on base almost every at bat. We have only lost two of our games this season with only one to go. While I have enjoyed catching I told Mom after our last game (which we lost) that I was going to have to play outfield the next game. Mom must not have been paying attention to the game because she asked why? Did the coach tell me I needed to move? My response was that no he had not, hadn’t she seen the game? I needed to play outfield because they were missing the balls that came to them and we lost the game! Mom said I needed to stick with being catcher and that she thought we’d do better next time.  I sure hope so as I’d like to win our last game. Go Tornadoes!
