Spring must be right around the corner because Joel's high school baseball team started practice this week. Before you know it, we'll be in short sleeves, shorts, and sandals. Woo-hoo!
You'll remember Joel is my nephew who was named 2010 Defensive Player of the Year his sophomore year of playing varsity baseball. He is anxious to get out on the field this year as a junior.
Undoubtedly, we will be spending lots of time at the park again this year as his younger brothers, Austin and Haiden, follow Joel's lead.

Unfortunately, Austin found out the hard way what happens when you take your eye off the ball. It can be Ugly.
Somehow the ball kept itself on his eye. It still hurts to look at this picture of him.
Although the boys are still weeks away from stepping into the batter's box in front of the Umpire, baseball practice is a sure sign that winter is nearly over.I am linking this post to Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday meme where each week we share a post inspired by a letter of the alphabet.

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
