Out With The Old, In With The New

Sport that is.
I would be lying if I said I was going to miss baseball. Three times per week with three kids, usually by myself, was a little too much work for me!

Big Man sure did have fun, though. He improved so much over the season and he had a great time. He misses it and now thinks that since baseball is over that it is my duty to play with him in the back yard every day. Thankfully, though, the boys and neighbor kids have figured out how to play by themselves and have made pretend bases and hit off the tees and do their thing. They even lined up all of the extra chairs they could find around the house for bleachers so people can watch them. It is really cute!

We are now in our second week of swimming. For the last 2 weeks they have gone 4x/week for lessons and most days we stay after and swim too (and yes I did have to get a special water wrap for the baby as well!) Their good friend, Hunter, who played baseball with Big Man also signed up for swimming and they have been having so much fun.

Today was the last day in the session so the kids got to jump off the diving board for fun.

Or in Little Man's case, tossed off.Big Man was the only one in his class who jumped on his own and he let everyone know that we saw today.
He was even able to swim over to the side by himself. It took almost the full two weeks to relearn how to swim, but he is doing good now. After swimming I think we are going to try Karate. The boys are all ready practicing their karate chops and hiyah's!

Thanks for the laughs. Little Man is too cute and Big Man so brave. I remember taking your hubby and his brother to their practices and games, toting their little sister. Your Mom probably did the same (only girls first, toting your little brother). Congrats to your sister! I couldn't believe all the hair. He looks a lot like her already. Your little girl looks so happy and she is beautiful.
