This spring, all the boys were able to play on a baseball team. Liam and Dash were together doing coach pitch and T-ball, while Grey was on a straight up T-ball team.

All of them were assigned to teams named the Rockies (there were several Rockies teams), which they were all pleased about.

A catch! All of them improved in their baseball skills. Honestly, they were fairly non-existent before this, so there was no way to go but up!

Swing away, Grey! I love the way this kid runs.

Liam and Dash's age group did a weekly practice as well as a game- it was very entertaining watching those kids get distracted by everything else in the world besides playing catch.

When up to bat, they had four pitches to hit until switching to T-ball. The last batter got an automatic homerun and ran all the bases. And when fielding, you always threw to first, no matter what. Just the basics here.

Their helmets were always so big and flopped all over as they swung and ran. I kept telling them to wear their hat underneath but the coach would say to take it off- coach trumps mom.

I'm not sure if they'll want to do baseball again in the future, but I think it was a fun and confidence-boosting endeavor.

Wren would sneak in her turn in the field. When she wasn't dragging me over to the playground swings.
