Getting ready for T-ball

Yesterday afternoon Emma, Uncle Adam, and I played "catch" for a little while in preparation for T-ball season which starts next week. I coached Emma on throwing the ball, explaining that she needed to step forward with her left foot at the same time that she released the ball. She grasped this concept pretty well and is indeed good at throwing, catching, and batting. After a while, she turned to me (with Adam behind her) and asked which was her left foot. After I replied, she proceeded to step backwards with her left foot and throw the ball over her head straight to Adam. I'm pleased to know that she is paying attention to my guidance. I suppose a little twist to the routine can make practice a lot more fun. Can't wait until next week. -Ben

What fun! Go Emma! We think we are for sure coming out for the Bear Lake Brawl (Stewart Reunion) this June. Brian wants to come and we are in the process of getting tickets. Sounds like fun. We will have a fun time with your kids.
