Landon played his fifth baseball game tonight. He went 2 for 2, scoring once, and played short stop and third base. His team did really well and won the game 10-6.
Will's team played their seventh game of the season tonight. It was another tough game in which Will only got to bat once. He got on base on a walk and eventually scored. He played left field and third base where he is getting comfortable playing. Despite their best efforts, this one was never really close and the boys wound up losing 6-14.
Landon played his fourth baseball game tonight. He went 1 for 2 and played center field, third base and pitcher. His team did really well and won the game 16-8.
Will's team had their sixth baseball game of the season tonight but, unfortunately, Landon was playing at the same time. Mama got to watch Will while Daddy took pictures of Landon since this is his first year to play. Will walked the one time he got up to bat and played second base and right field. Will's team lost a really close one to Bixby 7-8. Ahh, Bixby, don't get me started.
Will's team played their fifth game of the season tonight. It was a tough game in which Will only got to bat once and struck out. He played right-center field and third base where he did a great job keeping the runners close to the base. Unfortunately, the boys' efforts wasn't enough as they lost 9-18.
Drew's team had their sixth soccer game of the season today but, unfortunately, Drew was sick and had to miss it. Nonetheless, his team was able to win 3-1.
Will's fourth baseball game of the year was in Coweta. Since it was was a late game, out of town, and on a school night, Drew, Landon and Momma stayed home.
Will played center field and walked in his only at bat and then stole second. The boys won a close came X-X.
The game was also memorable because, although the day was quit warm and comfortable in the early afternoon, the temperature dropped significantly by late evening and no one was prepared for it. Everyone on the field and in the stands was shivering. The abrupt change in the weather occurred across the midwest even resulting in some bad tornadoes in central Illinois.
Will had his third baseball game of the year tonight. He played center field and second base. He only got up to bat once resulting in a strike out which turned out to be pretty common for us tonight. Our poor boys only scored one run in a very lopsided loss to a team with some great pitching.
Landon had his third baseball game tonight. It was at the exact same time as Will's game and, although they were at the same sports complex, they were at complete opposite ends, like half a mile away opposite ends. So Momma stayed with Landon and I went with Will. Unfortunately, this means there are no pics of Landon's game.
It was a tough game. Landon played third base and catcher again. With their bats near silent, Landon only got to bat once and he got a base hit. The boys suffered their first loss 2-12.
Landon had his second baseball game tonight and his team won a close one 8-7.
Landon played catcher the whole game and got two base hits. I had to leave to take Drew to soccer practice so some of the pictures were taken by Momma.
Drew had his fifth soccer game of the season this afternoon. For the first time ever, he got to play goalie!
One ball got by him for a goal but, for playing the position for the first time, Drew did a great job! Unfortunately, his team lost 2-7.
Will had his second baseball game of the season tonight. Looks like a lot of late 8:00 games under the lights this year.
Wiil played second base and walked twice in two at bats. The boys wound up losing a close one 11-12. (Pics to come.)
Landon had a hot one hit to him at third that bounced wildly. He was both ready for it and, judging by the picture, quite surprised. Unfortunately, it got passed him, but not many five year-olds could have stopped it.
They've changed the rules from when Drew and Will started playing. Some morons in charge think coach-throwing three pitches to a five year-old is a good idea instead of just solely hitting off the tee. Nothing but bad habits being built by this rule change. Nonetheless, Landon gave it his best swing.
Right at the point of contact on Landon's base hit off the tee.
Running to first base with the look of concentration on his face.
Lucky thirteen safe at first base where he was left stranded.
Since it was the first game of the season and little boys sitting in the dugout get bored quickly, both teams agreed to pack the outfield with all their extra players. It was too much to resist a little conversation with a nearby friend.
Next at bat, Landon was serious about hitting the ball and even hit one of the coach-pitches foul.
Landon getting his second hit of the day. Now you see the ball...now you don't. Great job keeping his eye on the target.
Running to first base is serous business.
Safe at first base and a thumbs-up for Daddy.
Taking off from first base...
...safe at second.
Watching carefully to see when it was clear to run to the next base.
Running to third base.
I was blocked from catching Landon crossing home plate but here he is getting a high-five from his coach.
Landon did a great job in his first ever baseball game. He played third, shortstop and center field and got two base hits. His team went on to win 12-7. Great job Landon!
Will had his first baseball game of the season tonight. Unfortunately, I was with Drew at his soccer practice and we got to the game late. I missed Will's only at bat which resulted in a walk and a stolen base where he was left stranded on second. It was a tough game and our boys were a little disorganized which led to a 7-12 loss.
Drew had his Arrow of Light ceremony this afternoon. The ceremony marks the transition from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.
Each boy's name was called, an arrow lit and shot at the target.
The archer was very accurate.

All of the new Boy Scouts. Drew has really worked hard to achieve all of his scouting goals and Momma and Daddy are very proud!
