Gators Baseball

Henry's team is the Gators. Tonight they played the Rangers. He's a little chatty out on the bases, but he can hit off the pitch on the first throw and has some hustle. He seems to be enjoying it. He got to play 3rd and 2nd base tonight.

While, sister's away....

Sister is at camp for 4 days so I made sure to have some fun planned for Henry. Today he got to have his friend Daniel come over and play at our house in the morning and then go to the pool in the afternoon. Tomorrow he gets to go see the movie Finding Dory and play with his friend Gavin. Wednesday he will have his friend Jared over for a playdate.

Fun at the cabin

 He can be such a good sometimes. He has such a fun personality.

Except when he is crabby, then his personality is not so fun. And sometimes crabbiness means you have stayed up too late 2 days in a row and up early 2 mornings and you fall asleep under your bed, where you went to pout, at 6:30pm.


Henry really wanted to play soccer and found one he could do on week nights in the summer. Only 1 night so far and he loves it. He will have soccer 2 nights a week and soft pitch 2 other nights a week for most of June and July.


They grow up too fast. I wish it would slow down right now. Had to take a picture with him and his beloved stuffed animals.

Runner Boy

Henry has often said that he loves to run and that was the sport he wants to do. Unfortunately at his age the only time he can run is just for fun at home or in an event like this Hershey track and field event that is 4 weeks long. He wants me to find some kids runs for him to do this summer as well. Tonight was the second week and he ran both the 50 and the 100 and came in first place out of 9 kids for both of them. He was actually quite a bit ahead of the others in both races. He was very excited that he got first place he went into it hoping to get second but I told him maybe he will get first and he did.

Last week he got third in his Heat and I knew he could do better but he was pretty tired from being scared and crying because they use a shotgun start for this program which I don't know why you would do that with 5 to 14 year old kids but Henry seem to be the only kid that was scared and bothered by the gun. Not only did he find it scary but it is quite loud and he still is sometimes bothered by loud noises. It was better tonight now that he knew what to expect and he was fine for the 50 but before that 100 he was in tears again and I had to ask them to move him to the for the slain so that he felt more comfortable being out there.w

 He also does the standing long jump and the softball throw. He doesn't do too bad for the standing long jump and gets four feet pretty consistently. The softball through though he has a little bit more to work on. He has learned good form from fire class but he just really needs to get behind it to throw it further.

Mother's Day Song

Henry wrote out a Mothers Day song for me and sang it to me. He did a fantastic job on this.
