Tis the season

If you know us at all, you know what time of year it is around here. A new season has begun. Mitchell is sticking with his position of the last 3 years and playing catcher again. He really likes this position. With the move we ended up in a new league with a team that is fairly inexperienced. Poor Mitchell asked one thing of his parents before game 2. "Please don't try to coach the team," he begged. That lasted about 3 1/2 minutes till Brandon was hitting grounders warming them up in the field and I was giving base running advice. Sad, but true.
Brandon's uncle said it best... "I'd hate to coach a team with you as parents."
But give it up for this season's Indians, they are now 2-0. And they have a really cute catcher.

Hey...I say if you have good advice that will help the kids then give it! Glad to hear Mitchell is having fun and that they are winning.

I'm sure you and Brandon are more than helpful! I'm also sure Mitchell really appreciates the improvement with his team! Miss playing with you guys! Baseball here is RIDICULOUS!!! They have the same kids (which happen to be the coaches kids...) playing the infield positions each game and practice. This is with the 6 year olds!

I am the same way! At least we aren't screaming from the sidelines - oh wait... I do that too!!;)

Your photographs are SUPERB. Perhaps, if you poke your nose behind the lens you'd be less likely to coach from the sidelines! hee! hee! Mitchell is awesome and we can't wait to come and see him play. Keep us posted. - Aunt Taunya
