Is this lil' guy...
The Jedis (oh yeah - May the 4th be with you)
Spring baseball started this weekend and I love love love seeing the little dudes out there chasing after the ball. They are starting to understand the basics of what is supposed to go on out there, but really it is just like watching the bad news bears and it totally warms my heart. & I love having Luz with me on the sidelines, breaking down the at-bats, sizing up the players. My girl loves sports, but (for better or for worse : /) she LOVES softball/baseball. This is her last year of coach-pitch, and (at least I am hinting at it) maybe the last year of softball.
We bought a pitch/catch/return net for the front yard and - as awesome as it is (and it really is super-cool) - after less than an hour of some game that Christian invented, we experienced the absolute worst fit of poor sportsmanship I have ever witnessed in my entire life, courtesy of James. No question Christian completely egged it on, but James was absolutely out of control when he lost. I was thinking that being part of a team and playing a variety of sports from from age 3 on would create a healthier approach. I suppose some of it is just nature. Needless to say, I don't know how much of the pitch/catch/return net I can take if this is what I have to look forward to each time.
