nothing cuter...

than a group of 1st and 2nd graders at their first baseball practice of the season.  The team is filled with kids that are naturally talented, those that don't care how well they play but they want to play and have fun and those that aren't so sure they want to play...they're testing the waters to see if they like the game they're going to learn.  Seeing them out in the field w/their ill-fitting hats, new cleats that aren't quite broken in and holding their mitt open ready to catch a ball that is coming at their face, wondering if maybe they should just step aside and let it fall or see if it hits the mitt.  

Can't wait to see how the season goes....hoping it's filled with lots of friends, games, and lessons about winning gracefully and losing gracefully.
