T-ball & Target......

You can't get much better than that on a leisurely Saturday!! We started our day by sleeping in...yes, that's right, sleeping in; Joe woke up early, but had things to do so he let me sleep and the kids must have been real tired because nobody got up before 8:45am (that may not seem late to some, but for me that's a blessing). After we took our time roling out of bed, having breakfast and getting dressed, it was off to t-ball.




Joseph just loves playing ball...and he really is so good at it. His coach told me today that he is a "natural", that the technique and talent just come "naturally" to him (of course I love to hear that because THAT'S MY BOY!!!). He gave us our game plan on what course to take with helping Joseph progress in his baseball skills!! I love to talk about how good he does with ball and how talented he is; yet at the same time, I get sad because I wish he could be that good in academics... I feel sad that he is struggling in reading :(
He's ready...
Right after he just thew to first base...
Ready to bat (that's his favorite part; usually he nails the ball way in the outfield)
There it goes....out and away
Running home.....
Joseph and his coach--- I love (well not "love" like that...but you know what I mean) his coach. He is so passionate about the game and about really teaching the kids the game!!
The cheering section
Having some fun with Angie
And Joseph too... (he had to "time-out" just so he could get a turn too)
After T-ball, we had lunch and then shopping!! They opened a new Super Target close to us (music to my ears... he-he) and it just opened, so of course we had to go check it out!! It is massive... with a huge parking garage on the upper level. They have lots of elevatots and escalotrs to get you where you need to go and they even have an escalator for the carts...can you believe that. We were so fascinated by that (oh the little things that amuse us)!!
WELCOME.....
Here it is..in all it's glory... Yes, you know we had to take our turn and actually use it!!!
So, now I am resting...i am worn out from walking around that store.... Hope you are having a HAPPY WEEKEND!!

Hey, that cart escalator is VERY cool!!! We always have to prop it up on one of the steps and then hold it leve, like with the strollers! lol

Oh my! As a swimming instructor I have to tell you how I hope you get him back in the pool real soon! I would hate for that to scare him off of all the fun! Next time you are in with him, let him try to dogdie paddle again without the swimmies!
