Jackson's first t-ball game
he was SO excited for his FIRST game! he has waited a long time to play and we are SO thrilled it is finally his turn!
listening to the coach explain how the position board works
because this was Opening Day at the Baseball Field they had a truck selling hot dogs and all kinds of goodies. Jackson was BEGGING for a hot dog. This kid is so hungry...I can hardly keep him satisfied. I guess he's just a growing boy! I told him that he needed to choose. We always do a slurpee after the game but if he wanted to trade in his slurpee for a hot dog he could. He opted for the hot dog. Not surprising at all!!! He LOVES food! :)
He did such a good job. It is always just the cutest thing to see those little boys out on the field. You have to expect the unexpected in T-Ball. nobody is ever really ready for the ball and it's a hoot watching those little ones run around. It's just as entertaining to watch the many coaches out on the fields trying to direct these little wild children running all over the place or doodling in the dirt. I just love it! :)
Jackson's coach has a big tub of old fashioned Bubble Gum that the boys can chew during practices and games. He actually has a lot of fun ways of keeping the kids engaged, organized and having FUN. Jackson was a hoot chewing his big wad of gum during the game! :)
this next series of pictures is priceless to me. seeing the distractions of playing in the outfield...it's hard to stay focused. :) he kept saying, the ball is NEVER gonna come to me out here mom!
playing with dirt
moving from the ready position to the squat position (which is not a "real" position")
now in the sitting position. :)
maybe i'll toss my glove in the air...that could be fun!
saying hey to his sister
love that it's baseball season again! so glad that Jackson can participate! these are FUN days were are living right now! :)
