Kick, Throw, Pop

Playing with balls has become a favorite activity for D and S.  We recently got two big bouncy balls (and a Jake and the Neverland Pirates ball) from Target.  Since then the kids have been obsessed with kicking, throwing, and trying to catch.  This is good since we have balls for outside and even some soft ones for inside.  It's an activity we can all do together ... and we have enough balls that there's not too much arguing.  We also have these animal ball poppers that we bust out every so often.  They get the kids REALLY excited, so we use them sparingly.  

I've had a chance to practice catching motion and shooting photos in manual while the kids played with the balls the last couple of days.  I'm still working on where to focus and what settings to choose.  My biggest challenge is getting both kids in focus.  I seem to get one of them or the ball focused but not everything.  I'm not sure if it's a matter of choosing the right focus point, aperture setting, or just practicing.  I have a feeling it's a little bit of all of those things!






We need to keep practicing the kick since D will be playing soccer in the Fall.
