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.
Landon is playing t-ball, and Bryce finished his basketball season and is on to baseball. Both boys take after their dad with natural sports abilities, they are both very good in all sports they play.
I unfortunately have not been able to attend any games as of yet. My new job has been the most physically demanding one I have ever had. I usually do not get off until 5 or 6 (Back on November 25th when I blogged about my weight when I went skydiving) it just makes it a little more of a challenge.
So it was my niece Madison’s turning 4 birthday bowling bash. The kids, and the adults had fun, it was an intimate party with family members. So no, both my brother and sister beat me, not by much though, both games ! I am not competitive however, I like challenges. I hardly ever bowl, however I hold my own. This is embarrassing, I believe my mother and father use to be in a bowling league and they were pretty darn good! I will have to confirm that.
During Christmas break I went roller skating for the first time after 11 years, and I did fine. I got to share this experience with my niece and nephews and they were all great on skates. I was a little wobbly at first and then it was smooth sailing except on my turns and skating backwards. I enjoyed myself. Skating seemed so effortless until we left the facility and we were outside chatting, I started to feel sluggish and a little pain in my legs, you do not realize the energy you put out. I understand the obvious of not having skated in a while, and the different muscles being used, however, even a little pain will not deter me !
These Little Darlings that I get to share time with are 8,10 and 12. To Bryce, Nathan and Alyson, this is for you! You guys are a smart bunch of young people, you make me proud to be your Aunt!
