Michael took the kids to the park to play ball while I was cleaning the house and doing the laundry. He called to see if I would come play, but I figured it was an excellent opportunity to accomplish some shoveling without the snowstorm (reference: cleaning the house with kids around is like shoveling snow in a snowstorm). The second time he called he sounded so disappointed that I wouldn't come I decided to take a break and get some pictures.
Recently when Ethan was at the Father's and Son's outing the boys all played some baseball. Ethan hadn't been taught how to throw, hit or catch the ball and his lack of form was apparently very embarrassing for Michael.
He's made it a point to take Ethan out and show him proper techniques to both throw and catch. Just in one day he made terrific progress. The boys were so excited to toss the ball around with Daddy that Ethan started giving Elle some pointers and would gingerly toss the ball into her glove. She was so excited when it would land in her glove.
