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.

  1. I have to laugh! This is Christopher’s first year at t-ball too.
    I just dread the games. He will not stay on the field
    for anything and when he does that the coach won’t let him bat – which is what he loves to do. Needless to say – I don’t think we are going to last
    the season.

    We platyed Adel last night and Adel was batting. The first batter
    made it to first base and his team mate hits one between the
    pitcher and first baseman. The ADel runner on first fielded the ball
    instead of running – it was cute and very funny.
    Enjoy your weekend and Happy Mother’s Day Linda!
