Softball

Crack! The bat hits the flying ball. It is softball season. I'm on the Warriors team. Everybody is pretty good.

I have to wear a helmet with a chin strap and a face guard. I also have a glove so that I can field the ball with it. My glove is purple and black. I have to wear a uniform and it has my number on the back and front. My number is 8. I also have to wear long socks to protect my legs. I also have to wear a red shirt and my uniform over top of my red shirt. I have a red metal bat.

When you are fielding, before the ball is hit you have to be thinking about what you do if the ball is hit to you. Try to get the nearest out. If it’s hit your way, but it stops, go to the ball.

I am really good at pitching because I get the ball over the plate. After you pitch the ball you have be ready to field the ball. You have to wait for the umpire to be ready before you pitch the ball.

When you are hitting here are some tips. You should keep your eye on the ball so you see the ball come over the plate. Here is another tip: try and time the pitch so you can hit it right to the out field.

After you hit the ball, run as fast as you can. Remember to run through first base and home plate. Stop at second and third base.

When we are at the game we cheer on our teammates. Here is one of my team cheers: There was a little froggy. He sat upon log. He rooted for the other team and had no sense at all. He fell into the water and bumped his little head and when he came back up again this is what he said: Go, go, go, go, you mighty Warriors. Win, win, win, win, you mighty Warriors. Fight, fight, fight, fight, you mighty Warriors. Go, fight, win and do it all again.

Always try as hard as you can and have fun!

Henry and Ian

Yesterday, I saw Henry and Ian. They are two year old twin boys. Their mom was in my Dad's math class a long time ago. Her name is Sarah. Her husband's name is Joe. Ian and Henry have a blog called The Dukes of Lawrence. I like to read it sometimes. They live in Lawrence, Kansas. I noticed that they were really very well behaved. It was hard to watch both of them because one of them would go out the door and the other one wouldn't. It must be hard for Sarah to take care of both of them by herself because if she has to help Henry do something then Ian has to wait. I want to see them again someday.

POOP IN THE POOL

Yesterday my mom and I went to the pool. We were only in the pool for an hour because the lifeguards started circling the pool to see if there was poop in the pool and sure indeed there was! So the lifeguards blew their whistle and the lifeguards said there was poop in the pool so we got out right away. We took a shower then we went to the outside pool and I played in the outside pool. When we went to the locker room the lifeguards were still working on the pool. Then we came home and took another shower.

PS This was my first time typing my own blog post and it took a long time. I have been learning to type. I know the home row keys and the top row keys. I still need to learn the bottom row keys.

Sleepover

Sabrina came over to play and eat dinner last Saturday. While they were here Sabrina’s mom took her into another room and told her that she was staying at my house that night. Sabrina and I got really excited and then we slept in the guest room together. In the morning we had a big breakfast and then we went on a bike ride. We played until Sabrina’s mom and dad came. It was our first time spending the night with each other.
