Making Summer Sports a Family Affair
My Sam is back in t-ball for a second year. Hes really loving it! He has so much more confidence this time around. He is hitting really well this season and recently, while playing first base, he tagged someone out. The crowds roaredor more accuratelyhis cheering section did! On Monday, Coach Jeff chose Sam as Player of the Game because of his speed. Not only was he fast at responding to the playsthat kid was zooming around the diamond. Yes, Dad and Mom were/are super proud!
Last year we had to travel all over town to get to Sams first season games as they were on a different field every time. Mercifully, this year were at the same field every game; I dont have to constantly double-check the schedule as were hurrying out the door! However, there is one drawback: there is no tree shade at the field. I have quickly learned that sunscreen is a must for Sam and his parents. That would mean methe fair-skinned one who can burn when the moon shines bright.
Im really liking Banana Boat® Sport Performance. The spray is quick and easy to apply. It not only protects against sunburns, it also protects against long-term sun damage and skin cancer. It also smells divine! Even though it has an SPF of 30 and it protects against UVA and UVB rays, the spray itself is clear. The rule of thumb for applying sunscreen is about one ounce (two tablespoons) of sunscreen before going outside and then reapply it every couple of hours, or more when swimming or excessively sweating. Using the Banana Boat® spray is quick and super convenient, especially for busy all-stars who dont want to stand still.
All the team parents are taking turns bringing snacks for the kids this year. I made homemade granola bars for the team this week. These are not the dry cardboard tasting things; think chewy, with just the right amount of sweetness from honey, cinnamon and dark chocolate chips. I used almond butter, plus the almonds and oats the recipe calls for. Besides being delicious and healthy, these granola bars are no-bakes so they go together quickly. They disappear quickly, too! I found the recipe on Cookie + Kate so hop on over there for her great recipe.
Baseball + Banana Boat® + homemade snacks + one awesome little ball player sounds like a great combination for a fun summer! Im loving being Sams Mom!
