First, thank you so much to everyone for visiting our blog and leaving such kind messages! It truly warms my heart–I am a very lucky woman to have so many blessings 🙂 THANK YOU!!
Now, down to business.. BASEBALL! Today marks the beginning of the 2011 Spring Training schedule! My husband and I receive the MLB Network, so Easton and I will be watching the Phillies take on the Yankees today.
As many of you may have noticed, our son’s name has baseball roots 🙂 My husband, a varsity baseball coach at Millard North High School, came up with the idea of Easton after a practice/game.. one of his players headed to the batter’s box without the cap on his bat. The bat? An EASTON.. Brian and I both loved the sound of it for a little boy’s name, and from early on, that was our pick!
Coincidentally, both of us are HUGE baseball fans. I’ve been an Atlanta Braves fan since I was in junior high, and Brian religiously follows the San Diego Padres. We both played softball for years (Brian still does), and between that and Brian’s coaching schedule, most of our spring/summer evenings are spent at the ballpark.
So obviously, our little man will be raised in a baseball household! Whether he decides to play or not will be totally up to him–the world is at his fingertips!! And if he becomes as big of a fan as his Momma and Daddy are.. he’s gonna have plenty of choices as to what team is right for him…
“I’m in my Padres gear.. with my Chipper Jones bear.. who do I cheer for?!?”
As for today, w’ere cheering for Rob’s Phillies. Anyone but the Yankees 🙂
