Batting practice

Sorry I'm so irregular! I've been getting complaints! I'm trying to get back into the habit, but I'm overwhelmed with work and school! The kids are still keeping life interesting though.
Tonight, Jeremy and Ben played baseball for a long time. Ben stood at our sliding glass door with a red fat bat and Jeremy sat on the floor by the couch pitching ball after ball. Benjamin hit the ball so well, he bounced them off of the front door - that's about 25 feet. At one point, I was in the bathroom giving Hadley a bath. I heard a noise and looked up to see a baseball in the bathtub!

Ben wanted to pitch to Jeremy. I'm pretty sure on the first pitch, I heard a smack and Ben started sobbing. Jeremy hit right in the eye. It was one of those cry until you can't breath heaving sobs. I was putting Hadley's PJ's on and was getting up to check on him. He stopped mid sob and said, "That's okay, Jer. I'm fine." That was that. He came over to show me the mark and went back to playing!

Part of the time I tried to get some video. He hit the ball directly over my head so I screamed - probably a little girlishly! While we were getting ready for bed tonight, Ben prayed, "Thank you for me playing baseball." After prayer, he said, "Mom, I hit the ball at you and you said, (Insert high pitched making fun of me screaming voice) 'Don't hit me with the ball!'"

What a great night!
