Today was the last day of school. So I guess I officially have a Kindergartener and a 2nd grader. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little typing that. How can it be???
Baseball season is in full swing. Both boys are playing 8U coach/machine pitch. The coaches get to choose whether they pitch or use a machine. Bodey's team uses the machine and Booker's coach pitches. I see pros and cons to both sides. If it were the other way around it would be a little better. The machine is a lot faster, and Bodey struggles. Booker gets a lot of hits off his coach, but is he falling behind the kids hitting off a machine? I guess I don't really care either way, they are having fun and learning lots. Booker has been hitting the ball fairly consistently. It's awesome to watch and I can see him improving each game already. Bodey is also improving. After the first two practices I couldn't believe we put him in baseball. The kid couldn't hit, catch or throw. He is getting better at all three. As a matter of fact, he hit his VERY FIRST BALL tonight!!!!!!! It was so exciting. However, I think it caught him as off guard as everyone else. He just stood there. Didn't run. Just looked around. Personally, I thought it was precious! And, now he knows he has to run to first base when he hits the ball.
Dusty is currently wrapping up a fishing trip in Montana. Can't wait for him to bring me home some Walleye and Northern Pike. That just might be the only vacation the Feezell family sees anytime soon. I think our first priority this summer should be to find a house. Then maybe we can get out of Kansas for a break.
|Last day at our old house.|
We are enjoying living at my parent's old house. It's nice and peaceful and the boys have plenty to do outside. We are also only about a 1/4 - 1/2 mile down the road from Dusty's parents. It's been really nice to hang out with them and let the boys head over there on their bikes or 4-wheelers. They have also been feeding us a lot. And.... fixing many a flat tire. My tires are shot and the gravel roads are taking full advantage of them. I've had a slow leak in one tire all week. Then, Monday night when we pulled in the driveway I heard air whizzing. A different tire was flat. THEN, tonight, that same tire suffered again; but a different hole! Needless to say, Booker, Bodey, the donut tire and I are headed to the tire shop in the morning. It's going to be a long drive going no more than 50mph.
Hope everyone has a wonderful summer!
