New Adventures

Landon started another new adventure....BASEBALL!

My little guy is the newest member to the Yankee's baseball team.

Landon had his first pratice yesterday, it was so cold and windy outside. I felt really bad, he didn't have a jacket to wear but it wasn't too long before he had all of the boys of his team warming up.

As soon as we made it to the field, I introduced myself to the couch. I told him that his was Landon's first time ever playing baseball. I was super nervous, all the kids had super fancy gloves and equipment. Landon had on his Gold Rush 5k t-shirt, sweat pants, and nike's running shoes. Can we say this boy is a runner not normally a baseball player. Poor, Landon had his cheap baseball glove. I can't believe my eyes on how much parents must spend on fancy equipment. I felt a little on the cheap side but we will be trying to upgrade his equipment next week.

The wind was whipping around like crazy...I tried to take the kids to play at the park but it was too cold outside. One day it's nice outside and the next day it's gone all crazy cold, again. Landon looked really outside on the field. The kids were busy throwing and catching the ball back and forth to each other.

Well, Landon's practice came to an end. His coach came up to me and asked if he heard me right when I told him that Landon had never played before? I told him that was correct and this was his first time playing. Well, it turns out that Mr. Landon is a natural. His couch told me that Landon plays really good.

I feel super blessed to have a son that is good at anything he tries. He never gives up on himself except for the occasional "I have to be prefect meltdown" and he truly believes in himself. Right now, in karate Landon has his yellow belt. In less than six months he has earned two belts. His teacher is super hard and he makes the kids earn their belts. A lot of sports just give the kids medals for being there but Landon's teacher really makes them earn them.

One last thing, they like to practices on Sunday, which we will not be attended; too bad! Also, the new night that has schedule for practices is Monday night at 8:00 pm. Who in there right mind schedules practices on a school night that late at night. I'm not sure if Landon will be attending Monday nights because he has Karate from 5:30-6:30pm.

So, Bentonville Youth Baseball is already on my bad list but hopefully, it will be worth it in the end.

8pm? That's crazytown!
Bring a lawn chair and a big bottle of ice water for him to practice, too. Once it warms up, they take water breaks and there isn't a fountain anywhere. Walmart has baseball pants cheaper than anywhere else around here.
