My new buddy

So I have been babysitting my nephew Jett everyday while his mama goes to work. It has been a LOT of work, and a huge adjustment. It's more than just babysitting when it is 12 hours a day. It is a lifestyle change! I have had to totally readjust my schedules! It is amazing what such a teeny tiny thing can do! Thankfully he couldn't be any easier! He loves to just sit back and watch what is going on around him and smile at everything. He LOVES Olivia too! He just giggles at her for no reason at all (I'm sure he is laughing at that hair of hers, but she doesn't get it!) I have been having fun teaching him things like baseball and independence (ya, he is her first kid!)

It happened again!

Does anyone get tired of me posting about how outstanding Spencer's club ball team is?? Sometimes I feel bad because that is all I post about, but in all honesty - it consumes our lives.

Anyways, we won another tournament! These boys are just playing to clean right now! I LOVE IT!! They look like they get it! It's like I can finally see all these years of practices actually working. I can see their brains using the tools they have been taught.

Dan's mom Jan & his little brother Ammon came out to a couple of our games and she took this picture of Spencer. I thought it was a cool picture. He is playing 1st base here, and doing a nice stretch-pick move. He got the runner out. woohooo

Afterward we had an impromptu party at Barros pizza. How can we not celebrate how amazing these boys are!?!

Ya... we won

The Raptor's had a tournament this weekend and I totally spaced bringing my camera! ugh! I hate it when I do that. But good news!!!...We totally won the tournament! What is the greatest part is that we were playing a team that is ranked WAY higher than us.... and we didn't just beat them. We SMOKED them! TWICE! It was such a great moment for the team. I am hoping we can carry this momentum throughout the rest of the season. I just love these boys.

Stay in the Competition!

Tonight at Raptor's practice I was cracking up! The boys usually have a little competition at the end of the practice where they get 5 pitches each, and they have to get a "hit" with each pitch. If they swing & miss then they are out or if they pop up or foul back they are out. The goal is to hit a line drive over the coaches head. If you get a "hit" with all 5 pitches then you stay in the competition. Whoever is still in go onto round 2... etc. Well tonight, Dan was feeling particularly kind to the boys that couldn't stay in the competition. They were doing wall squats while they watched their teammates compete! ouch.

Moving Kristi

My little sister Kristi has been living in Colorado the past year and a half and has finally decided that Arizona really is home! So my parents and I drove up to Colorado last week to help her move back with her son, Jett. Jett and I are trying to get to know each other since I will be his new babysitter everyday while she works.
