Thankful Thursday

It's been a super long day full of tired, whiny boys who oddly enough are tip-toeing around their room and whispering instead of sleeping...If it were me, I'd be o-w-t OUT!

It was a welcome break to head out to Jonz' little league baseball game early this evening.

Little league-ers sure are hilarious.

There's the boy doing cartwheels in the outfield. The one who can't seem to hold on to the bat. The one who spins like a ballerina every time he swings at the ball. The one who runs willy-nilly around the field looking for the bases. The one who stands on the bases looking wistfully off into the clouds while coaches, parents, and teammates yell for him to run to the next base. The one who hits it foul and his focus can't be broken until he's rounding second. The one who gets a slammin' hit, darts to first, loses his shoe after two steps, gets almost to first before turning back and sauntering back to his shoe while everyone yells for him to get back to the base- then STILL making it to first safely because the ball is being juggled between five teammates.

That last one is my boy. Time for some new shoes:)

And the parents can be funny, too!

Like the one helping the other team on the field picking up a boy and tossing him onto second to make the out on time. Not cool, but funny. And the cheering and coaching from parents in the bleachers is comical. I take part in it, too.

Thanks, Little League Baseball, for the laughs today. I needed that!

What are you thankful for today?

I love this! It reminds me of the video you guys put up last year of Jeffrey's game! So cute.
