And They're Off

Saturday was a busy day for us. Jake had the Babe Ruth Baseball Conditioning in the morning. I was so happy to see how organized it seems to be. The boys (and one girl) were able to learn and practice some parts of baseball. They played a game and also broke into three different groups to learn some of what will be expected. One group batted with a tee. Another caught fly balls. And the last group caught grounders. Andy has been playing catch with Jake for a while now, so he felt pretty confident. But, he had never hit the ball before. He said he had a blast. I'm looking forward to more baseball practices. Oh, and the boys play with a pitching machine, not a tee, so this is cool. I see lots of practices in our future. After this we got a quick lunch before I was off to work for a few hours at the library. I then met Andy and Jake at the Parks and Rec for the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. OMG this was so cute and fun. Jake was so proud of his car. He designed it and helped with the carving. He painted it by himself and also added the faces to the "people" driving the car. The leaders gave them all driver's licenses. Jake didn't win any of his heats. But, he said it was fun and was very happy that his friend Wade won the while event.
And, a local photographer, Bob Summers of Shoot The Beach, took some pictures and offered us to download them for free. Here are some of his awesome shots. Oh, and make sure to check out his wonderful photography here. Oh, Jake is the green car that looks like a truck with people in the front seat. So cute!
