Elisha's team is still going strong, winning their first two playoff games. They play again Monday night, so we'll see what happens from there. He's become a much more confident player, even in these last few weeks. Last night I watched him field a ball and was amazed at how quickly he adjusted. The second baseman missed a grounder and Elisha stepped up to stop it. At the last second the ball popped up and he adjusted, caught it, and threw the ball to the first baseman barely missing the out. Wow! It was exciting to see.
Sorry, I didn't get any good pictures to share this time.

I couldn't resist posting this great picture of the kids and their friend Jamie (Hope you don't mind Becca). He's one of Bethany's classmates and he and his mom came out tonight just to watch the kids play.

This isn't exactly the greatest quality picture, but you can see Bethany dressed like a butterfly ballerina in the middle/left and Elisha is a butterfly catcher clown on the far right (in the stripes). The guy who does this is definately good with kids and keeps the show exciting and fun the whole time.

Yohn and Elisha had to climb this rock area on the side of the hill to see what was in the cave.
Here's Bethany with a butterfly she caught. She'd rather be outside catching bugs and lizards than anything else.

Elisha's team on the other hand was an entirely different story. You could tell it was just too hot for them. Elisha got a hit in the 5th inning (yay!) and I got a good picture of it. You can tell though that he swung too soon, the ball going off the head of the bat right to the first baseman. Oh well, at least he's swinging and starting to gain confidence in doing it!
These pictures make me hot all over again just looking at them!
My kids do amaze me some days!

I just missed Bethany feeding this duck a small piece of bread.
I'm not sure if you will be able to see them once I post this, but I really liked this picture of the kids on the other side of the pond, just feeling free to be kids and explore.
Elisha is now big enough, or should I say strong enough to climb up in this tree. I has a long, low hanging branch that's about 5 feet off the ground. He's very proud of himself for his new accomplishment. Don't you just love those long gold socks!

He also got to play 3rd base tonight (because his team was so far ahead) and loved every second of it!

Tonight Yohn asked to talk to Elisha because he was teasing Bethany. He came out of his bedroom screaming and yelling and so was sent to the door. When he came off the door he began to argue with Yohn again so back he went. This happened two more times until he could talk without yelling or arguing. They talked and then Yohn asked Elisha what he should do the next time mommy or daddy tells him to do something. Elisha responded with "Be happy." He said it with such a serious face and such conviction that we couldn't help but crack up. Or maybe it's been a long day and some things are just hilarious in those moments.
