Dan's sister Nicole asked us a few weeks ago if we would be interested in putting the boys in dive lessons with her son Joel and the other boy cousin Garrett and so of course we agreed. They started this last Monday as well and they are really enjoying themselves. They have been working on how to step off the diving board these past 2 days, so no diving yet. But they love it anyways.

So this year, just like all other past years we did participate in the Spring Baseball Season. The only problem was that we did not get ANY pictures so I was completely reliant on family coming to the game and taking the pictures for me and then getting the pictures to me. (that would be why this post is a month over due!)
Spencer played Minors this year. During practices I was really nervous. Their team was not so put together and were definitely going to struggle but I didn't say anything to Spencer because he thought they were the best team ever! The first game they ever played as a team they actually clobbered the other team! I was totally blown away. As the season progressed they still did really well and I was proud of them. They were not the best team in the league but certainly not the worst.
Spencer I think found his place in the game. His coach was impressed with his ability to catch almost anything. He has an amazing glove... and so he was placed at First for most of every game. Thankfully Spencer really loves it there. He actually wants to continue playing there and wants a 1st baseman's glove. Of course he would rather be pitcher (BUT I wouldn't! that is stressful when your kid is the one pitching!) but first base is a good alternative because you are always getting the ball.
