We signed Jackson up for T-Ball this season with some of his friends at Preschool, Kai & Owen, Owen's dad is the Coach. Anyways this my first kid on a sports team so I was excited to see how it would go. Last Wednesday was our their first practice, I was a little nervous since I thought all the other kids would know how to do everything and Jackson still couldn't catch a ball. But boy was I wrong, it was hilarious to watch the kids play. They could pretty much could all hit, but the only one that was running for the ball was Owen ( since he had played last year). They were just standing there, Jackson was of course hugging Kai, typical. They finally caught on and would all chase after the ball, then cry if they didn't get it. So I was even more excited to see how the first game would go.
Before we got to the game I had to convince Jackson to wear his long socks ( he hates long socks) and his hat and tug up his ball pants, I showed him pics of my old ball teams that seemed to do the trick. Though he did take his hat off halfway through the game. The boys were so cute in their uniforms and looked like pros, though I dont know that they are there yet. With 3-4 yr. old T-ball there are no outs (luckily or it would never end) The first time Jackson was up to bat he hit great, when he was running from 1st to 2nd he retrieved the ball for the other team and then ran it to all the way to Second Base. It was the cutest thing ever. He seemed to like playing on the field the best, he ran for every single ball no matter how far it was, and he didn't get upset when he wasn't the one who got it. He even dove for one ball. I think he ended up being the dirtiest kid on the team. The whole time he kept asking if it was time for treats yet (totally my son) when it was finally time for them he was pretty dissapointed since the teamate brought a more healthy snack and apparently my son is only used to junk food( I promise he does eat healty most of the time). I hope all the games are this much fun.
