|James being aggressive|
|He actually got a little bit of air!|
|I'm not sure what is going on here|
|James especially did well towards the end of the season, becoming pretty aggressive.|
2012 James Soccer
James told me that soccer is his favorite sport. Then rock climbing. Most of the other kids have played before (he is kind of old I guess to be starting) but he is having fun.
I think it moves faster. I'm helping out coach a little, and am thinking about coaching next year.
He plays his 2nd game this week end, and his grandparents may be able to see him.

|His Soccer photo turned out much better than his school photo|
2011 James Baseball
In the spring of 2011 James struggled, like a good portion of the kids, with paying attention to baseball. It is sort of a slow game if you have problems concentrating.
We bought one of those things you throw baseballs against and it bounces the balls back at you, and a hitting tee (I practiced directly with him off and on but I don't want to push it too much, I'm sort of lazy, and think practicing means more if it is self motivated).
|James at bat. He bats both left and right handed. Weird.|
|Crossing home plate|
|After the game the players give high-five to the kids, and let the kids run the bases.|
|Getting James excited about baseball by taking him to a Chicago Kane County Cougars game.|
|Me with a questionable hitting stance. Coach pitch.|
|I'm Right of Center. Front row. This was either Lincoln or Lakeview Park|
|As I remember I was a leading scorer on the freshman A-team, but did|
not make the team my Sophemore year. Man that sucked.
|Wrastling. Both my brothers came 2nd in State,but won many other tournaments.|
My brother Steve was cutting a lot of weight, and had nothing left when he almost won the championship.
I was alright, but only wrestled in Elementry and Jr. High
