Playing "catch" up

This was from May 13, yep, a month ago. I know I'm behind, but I'm also trying not to let my computer rule me! We did do T-Ball with Jacob and Ben this year. It was a 6 week stint rather than 8, but we didn't make it to the last game because most of the family was claimed by illness. Jake & Ben are both pretty sporty and did really well. Ben can really hit a ball! The pic below is J with the other coach, Lou. He's my friend and old roomate Shannon's husband. Tyler was their other coach.
Micah was my little helper with sister, here they are, Micah straight from scouts.
Here is part of the boys cheering section, Aunt Morgan, Nana Paula and Papa Larry. Nana Byn and Papa Ron, not pictured, were also part of the regular cheering section.
Ben at bat, the T wasn't used all that often as long as the kids could hit one of the first 3 or 4 pitches. We actually had a few really great batters on our team.
Jake at bat, sorry about the sun. I couldn't do anything about that.

This is Lou's son Jackson with Jake after a game. There were some issues with spanking Aunt Mo's bum. Jake was doing it and Jackson was about to when Shan told him not to because he doesn't know her. Ben piped right up and said, "It's Aunt Morgan!" Like it was fine because we knew her so well! They were really cute. Jackson is a funny kid, we'll have to get together this summer to play.
Our little family, well, maybe I should say young family. We aren't so little anymore!

T-ball!! aww. I miss watching my little brothers games! They are all grown up now. :( Yeah so with my house I am a little OCD and have to get things up and running the day I move in. I'm crazy, but it works. :) I love the doll parts too!

I forgot all about the smacking Morgan's butt thing. That was funny. Jacob kept hitting her on the butt and Jackson thought he could just join in. I would have been mortified...good thing I stopped it! I'm just now catching up on my blog reading.
