May 9, 2007 – A Day in the Life of Martin

Today, we feature the most photogenic member of the family – Martin. We must have been temporarily insane when we signed him up for T-ball and swimming lessons at the same time. It’s a lot for a 5 year old, but swimming ends at the end of the month, so it won’t be for long.


It’s his first round of swimming lessons at the “Y” in Marshalltown and he’s enjoying the lessons.

All of you that have gone through t-ball won’t be surprised by the stories from the t-ball field.


Here’s a might swing slightly off the mark. Practices are a hoot – they’ll be kids laying down in the grass in the outfield, others will be throwing their gloves ar each other, while a solitary boy tries to kick his way to the lower crust of the earth. Martin’s first time at bat he made it to 2nd base and when the next batter got a hit, he was being waved to run to third base, his response was a big smile and a wave back while the batter ran towards him from first base.
