Baseball is in the air! This family is LOVIN it and we can't get enough! Malakai is playing on 2 teams this summer. One that Josh is coaching...The Kirkwood Bandits (machine pitch) and he is also playing in the CYC league for St. Paul. The Bandits have been meeting at the batting cages every Sunday for practice since Octoberish. Those sweet little 6yo boys have put their hearts and souls into it as they learn the All-American Sport of baseball. The amount of growth I have seen in them is just amazing! If Josh could support his family by coaching little league baseball, it would definitely be his full-time job. He loves it! Not to mention the fact that he is AMAZING at it! I can't go with out saying that the other coaches on the team, Paul and John complete the coaching staff and are also fabulous! All of their hard work paid off last night as they had their first game of the season. Thanks to Chuck's Boots they are sporting some pretty awesome uniforms! Good thing they had the skills to fit the professional look :) The won 12-2!! We are really looking forward to see what the rest of the season has in store for us. It is a great group of boys and a fabulous group of parents! I can't think of a better way to spend the wonderful Summer evenings than at the ballpark with great friends and great fun!
