Little League Baseball ......& football.....

Another fun filled day in our house !! Up with the lark to take son# 1 to football. Yes, I know its July.... and I have told the coach that he is an evil man. Well, watched that for a couple of hours and then it was off to baseball. Not, this time, my husband, but the kids.

Last week the coach asked my boys to come to little league, so of course, we did. Baseball is not a big sport over here, but we as a family are big fans. The boys turned up and were given their uniforms ( rather lovely they were, too ) and we sat in the sunshine watching them until about 3.45.

They both played well with son#2 asking to be on a base and asking to bat first within 1 game of his debut !! Confident ?? Son# 1 had 2 at bats and scored 2 home runs !! Cool !! They both have a lot to learn, but there are some great coaches and some great little players there, so they will learn a lot. There were a lot of American families there and the whole atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed. I actually enjoyed myself !!

So, now we are home and I have a steak pie in the oven, to be eaten with new potatoes, hot buttered Hispi cabbage and mange tout. And I notice that my man has bought a very sneaky apple pie - so life in our house, at the moment, is jolly good !!

I must know, what all goes into a steak pie? It sounds fabulous!

I hope your boys enjoy their new sport. Although it is our "national past time" I cannot abide baseball. So far my children are not very athletic, so we may skip least for a few years.
