It's a new season

Baseball season, that is. Nate started baseball practice last week. It's the first time he's ever actually played on a team. He's practiced a bit with J&J ~ but his dad and I are old fuddy duddy's and not really into sports much so he's starting a bit late. He has some very natural talent and he seemed to have fun.
I am going out today to get him some new gear ~ proper sliding pants, a baseball themed tee shirt and cap, so he can look the part as well. Richard got him the shoes, bat, ball, cup, etc... but it's up to me to make him look the part!DSC05560 As you can see, the sliding pants he has are too short and all the rest of the guys have long gray ones so that is what I'll look for. It'll be interesting to see how he does.

Oh, and I met Richard at a new (for us) restaurant the other day for lunch. Meg O'Malley's. Man ~ that was some GREAT food. DSC05559 This is a part of their "menu" with lots of fun Irish sayings, blessings, etc. I had the corned beef and cabbage which was wonderful. Richard had the pot pie which was also great. As an appetizer we had potato balls ~ basically mashed potatoes with bits of corned beef in them, rolled into a ball and fried. I'm sure they are terrible for you but they tasted yummy.
Ya'll will have to come for a visit so I can take you there too!

Jessica is still doing try outs. It's going to be a very bad day if she doesn't make the team!

Actually, speaking of coming for a visit.... Devin's keeping his eye on ticket prices.

The boys both want to do baseball this year. -My least favorite kid sport. Oh, well.

Those "potato balls" sound like something Iwanski would like to eat. They also sound SUPER healthy. :)
