Spring … birds are singing, flowers are blooming and most of all… bats are swinging.
Briar and Brad will play baseball in the Hoxie league this summer and Jarah will play her first year of t-ball. Yesterday, we were all at my Mom’s house for my birthday dinner and decided to practice.
Briar, Brad, Dad, Blake, Georgetta, Jarah and I played catch and then let the kids take turns batting. Briar and Brad have grown quite a lot over the past year – and although they hit the ball well before – they amazed me at how hard they were hitting. Their fielding surprised me, too.
Jarah was just as amazing as the boys. For a six-year-old, she was hitting the ball really well. While fielding, she eagerly tried to catch every ball that came her way. Although we had her way out in outfield, she scared me when Briar hit a line-drive in her direction. She went after the ball and ended up being hit right in the chest. You could hear the thump all the way across the field.
She jumped right up, though, and threw the ball to my dad. I worried that the next time, she wouldn’t be as eager to get the ball. Those worries were soon put to rest. She and the boys raced after every ball hit without any reservations.
I can’t wait for their season to begin!
