Opening Day Madness!

Yesterday was opening day for baseball/softball season!  It is always a CRAZY day!  The kids love it though and get really pumped up for the season!  It all starts at 8:00 am - parade of all the teams, opening ceremonies at the park, lots of early morning candy, and then of course each of then have a game!  

This year Ashlee is on the team Lightning.  She has a few of her friends from class on her team and Principal Reed is her coach - so she's pretty excited.  The weather was rainy on and off so I didn't take my camera to their games today.  Ashlee pitched the first inning of her game (in the rain).  She was cold, wet and a little nervous but she still managed to strike out a batter.  Not bad for our "girly girl"!  Even with a few tears and frozen fingers from the freezing rain, she managed to get a hit and eventually bring in a run for her team.  Way to go Ash!

Nolan is on the Florida State Seminoles this year.  He didn't know anyone on his team.  And to our surprise, our little bashful dude wasted no time making new friends.  Nolan is such a natural out there on the field!  He loves the game and is so focused!  It's the perfect sport for our concentrated little man.  He plays first base amazingly well and seems to be really understanding the game this year.  He is new to Minor League this year and with that comes the infamous pitching machine.  It's a little intimidating for these pro-tee-ballers but Daddy is taking Nolan to the batting cages today for some more practice.

Baseball season is always stressful and go-go-go!  But with all the stresses of life right now, this is exactly what we need!  

Our kids are awesome!
