Landon had his first ever baseball game tonight. He started out at third base. He's using Daddy's old baseball glove from the 1970's which was recently used by his older brothers, Drew and Will.


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.


Drew with his Arrow of Light on the bridge which symbolizes the transition from Cub Scout to Boy Scout along with the outstanding Boy Scouts who put on the ceremony.


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!

Drew Scores a Goal!


Drew's team dominated today, in part due to a talent mismatch but also in part due to their great game play.


Drew perfectly placed himself in front of the goal in a gap between defenders and when a kick towards the goal was deflected he was in the perfect position to thread a shot between defenders and out of the reach of the goalie for his first outdoor soccer goal!


A close up the the scoring kick.


Drew on defense clearing the ball down field...left footed. The team played really well with lots of great passing which resulted in a 9-0 victory.

Drew had an exciting game today. Here he is breaking up a drive towards our goal.


Drew and his long legs on the run.


Getting ready to clear the ball. His team won 6-5 in a heated match. Our goalie did a great job. There was even one amazing shot on goal that hit both the left and then the right goal posts before bouncing out.

Will had an overlapping baseball practice, so I got the Drew's game a little late but was still able to get a few good pics. Fortunately, the team had a few subs this time so the action was fast paced.


While on defense, Drew stole one away from the other team.


My knees hurt just looking at Drew's plant foot twisting as he turns his body to clear the ball away from his goal. The game was actually a lot closer than the final score reflects, 1-5, as we had quite a few shots on goal that just barely missed.

Drew had his first soccer game of the season today. The boys did really well despite having only one practice due to the recent bad weather and no substitutes against a team with a full bench.


My postings have dropped off in the last year, I haven't even finished last year's baseball/soccer season postings. So, this year I plan to just post a single photo or even just a place holder if time doesn't allow. And, look how well I did here, apparently one photo means five.


This was a good series. The ball was kicked to Drew while he was defending and he went to get it under control.


As Drew got the ball under control, leaping Larry came in trying to take the ball away. Got to give the kid some credit he's got a great vertical, just don't know why he chose to use it at this particular time.


With his opponent in the air, Drew was able to take the ball and head down field. The boys lead most of the game but a last minute goal by the opposing team resulted in a 3-3 tie.
