The Tiny Phillies in 2008

kade and i are in a time of transition... we finish off our all star soccer season this saturday with the playoffs. he is the only 6 year old playing with 7 and 8 year olds and is holding his own. he has even survived playing some goalie! But it is know time to focus on baseball and the days of the tee and everyone playing are long gone. kade stood in the batter box at practice yesterday and face another kid for the first time. he looked terrified, but stayed in the box. the first pitch took off over his head ... he turned and looked at me like he was about to die, but stayed in there. andy had some trouble getting it over the plate, so i stepped in and kade hit a soft grounder... i think he was still a little scared.... maybe scared a lot. lol.

in the car on the way home, kade was like "dad, andy almo0st hit me ." i said i know, but he does not want to hit you. cause than u go to first base... he commented back... "it will hurt" my assurance that he would go to first base was met with ... "when does soccer season start again". i think kade is in some transition also... he is the youngest on this team too, but he always rises to the occasion and i think he will be alright. hopefully, i will survive too... i woke up last night at 2 am and could not sleep cause i was thinking about this team and how to get them ready for games in a few weeks. i have not been stressed like this in quite awhile. pray for me. :)

Looks like your worst nightmare is coming true. Your son likes soccer more than baseball. Maybe I was hanging around you too much before he was born. lol
