♥ For the Locals ♥,

YOU’RE OUT!!! When Children’s Sports are Ruined by Bad Adult Behavior


I don’t voice my opinion about political issues often on my blog, but I think this is going to be a hot topic since so many of you have children in sports. We live in a very small town in south Louisiana and our children play baseball/t-ball on the community league along with about 400 other children. My husband and I have coached and helped coach for the past three years and we LOVE IT! Our son made the all-star t-ball team last year which was a load of fun
