Microblog Monday: And So It Begins

Softball season is upon us! Today is the first day I'm allowed to work with pitchers and catchers. It's still considered pre-season, but new rules (since I was last coaching 5 years ago) allow us to start working with pitchers and catchers 2 weeks before everyone else. It's a good rule, as games start just 2 weeks after tryouts begin. Pitchers need to have more time than that to get game ready and hopefully avoid injury.

I'm excited and nervous. I hope it goes well. The kids seem to be adjusting to things pretty good. They LOVE going to my friend for daycare, so that is good. Time will tell in how they adjust once I am gone a few nights a week at bedtime, when we have away games! It will just have to become our new normal for the next few months.
