Summer is well and truly here at our place. I know this because we’ve all gone cricket mad. Actually I think we’re loving cricket this year more than we love footy (did I just say that!?).
My husband is coaching the under 13s team this year and he’s loving it! I think he’s reliving his youth. He’s gone all ‘stats’ mad… ha! My big boy, Cruise, is playing well. He’s on the top of the batting average board for the whole of Wagga at the moment. Now I’ve just written that I’ll probably jinx him. Anyway, he’s doing well and is improving all the time. Tex is 9 and he plays in his under 10s team plus he plays up in the 13s team to help out. My baby, Chevy, who is 8 also plays in he under 10s team so there’s plenty of games to watch over Fridays/Saturdays! I get my outdoor chair, a coffee (or a beer on a Friday night!), the drink bottles and I head off happily to sit with the other Mum’s and watch.
They won’t come inside at night. They play out on the lawn for hours together practicing. They beg their father to bowl to them and take them to the nets. The second they get to school they’re busting to get playing with their mates.
I am really hoping to go to a few Big Bash games and the Test over Christmas. That’s all the boys want to do… Beats playing that bloody Xbox!
