My nephew Landon had 2 games yesterday, it was opening park day.  I made it to his second game.  This is his last year in t ball.  I have not attended any games for two years. I dropped the ball big time on my aunt duties.  Because  of work, I quit doing all the fun stuff.  I had no balance in my life.  I enjoyed every second of it ! Those little ones can hit.  My nephew played first base and it was sad and exciting to see him play. Sad because I have missed out on his development, changes, growth in all aspects of his life. ( their lives) Just like my sisters children, even though they are in a different state.  It is time you do not get back, however, it is what I do now that counts. Landon has sharpened his skills, I can see his progression from two years ago.  He throws, catches, and hits very well. Bryce is still practicing baseball with his team, games have not started yet for him.  Both boys have inherited their dads natural athletic abilities.  My brother,  any sport he played or plays, he excels at.
