Say No to Drugs!!

We got a letter in the mail a month ago or so telling us that Kyla had won an award for her poster she did in school for the So No to Drugs campaign.  They wanted to recognize everyone at a dinner that was held May 2nd (Monday).  Well, we had 3 things going on that night...so Tony took Rhett to Caleb's game and then Eli and I went with Kyla to this dinner (Kyla's softball practice just had to be missed...can't be 2 places at one time...although sometimes that would be really nice!!)

It was a very nice dinner and then they had the awards.  There were 280 something kids who turned in posters and Kyla was the only 5th grader to be recognized (I think there were about 10 in all)!!  She was very excited...but the most exciting part...the $25 they also gave everyone!!:)

 Pointing out which poster was Kyla's.
"Accepting" the award.
Here's her poster and her award!

It's Baseball time!!

Caleb started baseball the middle of April and had his first game last week.  He was able to pitch a couple of innings that first game and did a great job for it being his first time pitching!!  His second game he started pitching and did a great job...if I remember right his stats were:  1st inning: 3 stike outs, 2nd inning: 2 strike outs, 3rd inning: 1 strike out; and 4th inning: 1 strike out!  Pretty darn good! Here's a short video of him pitching: video
Also I've got to tell you the sweetest thing!  So Caleb hit one of the batters and I hear his little voice call out "sorry!"  Never heard someone apologize for hitting someone on the field before...I thought it was sweet!:)  I actually got it on camera...if you listen closely you'll hear his litte "sorry" at the end!

During this game he also went 2 for 4 at bats.  He hit 2 pretty good grounders for base hits and then got walked twice.  Here's one of his grounders.

I love baseball season!!  Although it gets pretty busy when Kyla starts softball and Rhett is starting t-ball this year...we LOVE it!!
