Your Compass MONTHLY
FROM THE DESK OF Ty Wilson
Looking at the past baseball seasons and comparing it to this season, I would say we have improved. Last year, the Yankees won two games and lost in the first round of the playoffs. This season, as the Braves went into the playoffs, our record was 14–1. How is that for improvement?We had an outstanding group of kids who played every game of the regular season hard and with the exception of one loss with the score 7-6, we won every game. As the first seeded team in the playoffs, we obtained a bye in the playoffs for the first round. In the second round, we faced the Yankees who we had handled easily in three games in the regular season. This was not the regular season; the Yankees came to play and play they did. In the bottom of the fourth, we were down 22–12. If we did not score in the bottom of the fourth, our season would be over. We scored and ultimately tied the game; it was the longest, best, back-and-forth game of the year, and we won 29–28 in the 10th inning. Unfortunately, our luck would end there; our kids were exhausted and we lost the championship game badly to finish the year in second place. Great year Braves!
While children may be on summer vacation, a parent’s concern for their safety isn’t. Here are a few ways to keep your kids safe during the summer. Sun Safety One of the most important hazards to keep in mind is the sun. UV rays can damage the skin and eyes, causing skin cancer and even immune system suppression. Luckily, there are a few easy ways to counter sun exposure. Wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, covering your exposed skin, wearing sunglasses, and controlling your time spent in direct sunlight can all prevent skin damage. Another way to keep your child happy and healthy in the sun is to keep them hydrated. If your child has a dry or sticky mouth, sunken eyes, dry and cool skin, drowsiness, dizziness, or little to no tears while crying, then they are suffering from dehydration. Make sure that your child drinks water as much as possible and that they rest in a shaded area to prevent dehydration. Staying Healthy This is one subject that shouldn’t take a break over the summer vacation. Children are more likely to gain weight over the summer than any other time of the year. Sticking to a schedule can keep your kids proactive and create positive and healthy habits for them. When you’re heading out to a summer activity, packing a lunch can ensure that your children are eating healthy. You can help the entire family maintain healthy eating habits by packing fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, and healthy beverages instead of picking up a quick bite to eat on the way there or back. To keep your child busy throughout their HAVE FUN AND STAY SAFE ALL SUMMER LONG! Take Safe Steps for You and Your Children
