Future All-Star

We have had a great Memorial Day weekend and it isn't even Memorial Day yet.  In the past few days, we have been to the zoo, played with cousins, played with Nana, grilled out and spent hours playing outside.  Today was definitely the best for my little man though.  After church, lunch and a quick nap, we headed back to church for a wiffle ball tournament.  We have had a few of these tournaments in the past and they have let Will hit a few times but this was the first time that he was really part of the team.  He loved it and did so well!  All that practice in the back yard really paid off.  The kid hit the ball every time he was up to bat and some of the hits were pretty good.  He is still learning about running the bases but he did well to listen to the first and third base coaches and just loved being a part of everything.  I was so proud of my little man!!

A few instructions from daddy before his first time at bat

I loved watching Will bat.  He was so serious about it.  He would walk up to the plate, hit the plate twice with his bat and then get ready.  It didn't phase him if he missed but would just kept trying. The little kids were allowed 4 strikes but he never needed all 4.

Thumbs up for making it to first base!!
Will LOVES these high school boys and I love how great they are with him

Will running hard to get home!
Later Josh hit a home run when Will was on first base and they ran the bases together.  So sweet! Later Will told everyone that HE hit a home run! :)

Daddy and his future all-star

In case you were wondering what Isabel was doing..... She had no interest in playing wiffle ball.  She was busy carrying around her purse, decorating her chair and blowing bubbles.  Someone commented that we have the most stereotypical boy and girl possible.  SO TRUE!
