T-ball party

On June 5th Ryan and Benjamin's T-ball team the White Sox had their end-of-the-season party. The players each got a trophy and a baseball with their nickname on it. Benjamin's nickname was "The Intimidator" because he was always in the baseball ready position on the field.
I didn't bring my camera to Alex's team party, but it was a fun swimming party and he got a nice big trophy as well. Alex and Benjamin both showed a lot of improvement during their first season and Ryan managed to pull off coaching even with a crazy work schedule. He was a great coach too, very patient and encouraging to these little guys who were just learning how to play. It was a fun and loooong season and I'm glad it's over. I know this is just the beginning, though, since there is no end in sight to the number of our boys. And we've already signed up for soccer in the fall. Heaven help us.

Boys are fun! (I just keep telling myself that.) I'm trying to prep myself to be psyched for sports teams as opposed to the ballet classes or flute lessons I grew up with. A whole new world!
(And that pizza looked really good. I think I must be hungry!)
