This and That...

The day I have been waiting for all gardening season has finally arrived: I have enough tomatoes for a batch of salsa!
Those beauties will make some awesome deliciousness! 

Caden started practices with the fall baseball league on Sunday.
There ended up being enough kids for 9 different teams.
The kids are in grades 7 and 8 so aged between 12 and 14. The size difference between 12 and 14 years old is astonishing in some cases. A few giants and a few small fry on each team with the bulk of the kids somewhere in the middle of those extremes.

Two of the boys on his team he played against while on the Wheeler team (the Wheeler team won).

This league plays on a HUGE field. The distance from home plate to first base is a pronominal 90 freaking feet! Last season the biggest distance from home to first was 75 feet. Those extra 15 feet make for a LONG sprint. The coach timed the boys and Caden hit first base in a super fast 4.6 seconds!
Now that is some serious boogieing!   

Caden is going to learn a lot on this fall team. 

The other night we were driving to practice, it was a nice afternoon and we had the windows down.
I'm sitting there gawking around at the beautiful trees and flowers when a bee flew in the window and stings me on the top of my thigh!
Damn that hurt!
After the first few minutes it didn't bother me much,but now days later it's crazy itchy.

Well I'm off to start the salsa before it gets too hot out.
Might get up to 90* for the first time today and course it's humid has hell.

Dodger says to be like him and stay cool!

Later :)
