On Friday, Drew had baseball practice. When we arrived we found out that our practice field had been double booked (again!). The coaches decided that our teams could scrimmage. That actually proved to be the best practice we could have in fact! The kids really got to see what a game would be like. For Drew he was able to see that you wouldn't get a hit every time and that this year they count strike outs. He did really well and I don't think it will take him long to realize that it's not the end of the world if you don't get a hit every time. It helped when I shared that Poppi and Uncle Jonathan didn't get hits every time when they played either!
Drew gets ready to hit the ball! Look at that future Atlanta Brave - particularly Chipper Jones (hey a mom can dream can't she?)!
Drew plays the field - he does a great job of backing the other guys up!
I wanted to get a picture of how dirty Drew got during practice. So... after practice he and Mikayla pose for a picture in the back of our new van. Gotta love that South Carolina red mud - see Drew's face and hands!
