Baseball and Gymnastics

  I really love how active my kids are.  Sometimes it's hard for me to keep up!  Isaiah just finished baseball season, and he totally loved it!  He was so excited that he got to be in coach pitch this year.  He did a great job, too.  The funny thing was about halfway through the season he went from hitting almost every pitch to missing a lot.  It took us a while to figure out that his swing speed had gotten a lot faster, and so his timing was all messed up.  But, he practiced hard and before long he was back to getting hits, this time with a lot more distance due to the power and speed in his swing.  It was awesome to see his face light up when he'd connect and hit it far.  Way to go, buddy!
Look at that stance.  He's so ready to go!

This is actually one of the only times I caught him holding still in the outfield.  He was always jumping around or trying to talk to somebody.  I guess he still does have 5-year-old focus.:)
  Savannah had her first gymnastics exhibition a few weeks ago as well.  It was a lot of fun, and I loved how official the teachers made everything.  It was just like a real meet, right down to how the students walked and rotated to each event.  So cool!  Savannah was great, too.  She's doing such a fantastic job learning how to tumble and dance around.  She loves swinging over the bars especially.  There was even a little awards ceremony at the end, and all the students took turns standing at the top of the podium.  Good practice, right?:)
A lot of the pictures ended up blurry because of all the movement, but I love how in this one she's the only one in focus.  That's where our attention was anyway, right?

Look at that smile!  She was so proud.  Her mom was, too.:)
  Way to go, you guys!  Great job!:)
