Hello from my Pentax

I think Spring just started today,though I still can see snow....

to anyone who can make a suggestion....or educate me
I currently have a Optio M20, that I love, however I am ready to move up in
the camera world. I was thinking about the K200D? would anyone care to assist me in choosing the right camera? I take lots of pictures, two boys in 9 different sports. I want the best pictures! I take my camera everywhere and now that I have learned a little more about "picture taking" thought I should upgrade!

This is where I started about a year ago - I wanted to take pictures of my kids in sports (soccer, soft ball, Tae Kwon Doe, etc). I have been "hooked" ever since!!

The K200D would be a good choice. It has some auto-pic selections like "Action" that you can use for sports, as well as more "advanced" modes where you can set the shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you see fit.

Not wanting to discourage you, but depending on if your kids are in "inside" sports, you might run into lighting challenges, meaning enough light to allow for a fast enough shutter speed so that the pictures are not blurry, especially given a flash may not be allowed or not feasible due to distance. Bumping up the ISO and/or getting a "fast" lens can help remidy that. In my case, I picked up an old manual "fast" lens that has done great...
