3 years old comparisons

Brennan turned 3 on Friday, and had his 3 year old check up today. I thought it would be fun to compare all 4 boys at 3 years old. Too funny that 2 boys were exactly 35 1/2 inches and 2 were exactly 38 inches.

Brennan: 31 pounds and 38 inches.
Bryson: 33.2 pounds and 38 inches.
Brayden: 31.4 pounds and 35 1/2 inches.
Brandt: 29 pounds and 35 1/2 inches.

Opening Day

Saturday the older 3 boys had opening ceremonies for baseball followed by games. Brandt and Brayden are on the same team in junior minor (machine pitch) and Bryson is in tee ball. Dustin is the head coach for both teams, which surprisingly hasn't been too bad.
Brandt getting a hit
Brandt on 3rd with Dustin
Brayden warming up
Brayden did a great job as catcher
The 1st half of the year you have to hit off of the tee. Bry had a perfect swing with just hitting the ball and not touching the tee.
Bryson's hit went all the way to the fence
Bryson was told that you can only slide into home, so needless to say he slides every time he comes home.

Batter Up

We are in the middle of baseball season, and with 3 kids playing that usually means we are at the ballpark 4 nights a week. Our one and only night off is Wednesday, so what did we do this Wednesday evening? Why we took advantage of Dustin having a key to the sheds and had our own impromptu batting practice.
Brennan ready to go in
Bryson is in tee ball, but has been dying to practice hitting off the pitching machine. So Dustin went ahead and let him hit and his 1st time up he fouled it twice and got a nice solid hit to the outfield. His next time up he hit 6 of the 8 balls, with 4 going to the outfield...not too shabby for a 5 year old (you have to be 7 to play junior minor where they use the pitching machine).
Love Brayden's expression! He wouldn't smile no matter what I did, not even silly faces worked. lol
Not to be outdone by his little brother Brandt hit almost every ball thrown at him his next time up. Gotta love some friendly competition. :)
As much as Brennan wanted to bat, his job tonight was shagging balls. I was impressed he figured out such a clever way to carry the balls back to the pitcher.

Welcome Home 2011 Women's Basketball National Champions...

The Lady Aggies made their way back to the Brazos Valley yesterday. A huge plus of homeschooling is we got to take the boys and meet the team at Reed Arena at 2 in the afternoon. It was a really neat event to show the girls how proud we are of them. I loved watching the teams' reactions while they watched the highlight reel. I am hoping this is a memory my boys have for a very long time.
