More feeble baseball attempts...

I hope I don't run off my 2 blog readers with all these bad sports pictures. I get points for trying something new, right? :o)

I love watching Tucker get up to bat... he gets up to the plate, so determined & focused. This is the first year he is hitting off a pitching machine, but he's doing pretty good! He hits this stance just as soon as he gets to the plate. It doesn't matter if the coach is ready to pitch to him or not, he's PREPARED! :o) Daddy must have drilled that in his head.


Sometimes that focus pays off with a hit....


And sometimes it doesn't. My heart just drops when he strikes out. You see, Tucker is so much like me - I've always been a perfectionist and tend to beat myself up over the silliest things. I always worry that after he strikes out, he's going to be disappointed - as soon as he's within my sight, I'm studying his face as he pulls the helmet off. He will just shrug his shoulders & smile. I just love that kid to pieces. He's so stinking smart - I hope he never sweats the small stuff. :o)

I must be the other reader. These pictures are too cute. I have to admit he is alot like his Mother. But he is one of the sweetest kids around.

no no I'm here too!!! LOL!

Steph, I'm so jealous, this is the first year we haven't done baseball. Ty started when he was 4, he's almost 10 and gave it up this year. It makes me soooo sad, I miss it so much (he doesn't though). My summer feels empty without the ballpark. And I'm missing photo opps! I love the second shot, I tried a ton of times to catch one like it last year and failed miserably. EMU makes it look easy huh? Keep em coming, I love your posts.
