PlayBall!



This year, the Kindergartner was finally old enough to play tee-ball! He was so excited!
The season started out with 13 four year old kids who'd never played ball before....


He stepped up to the plate for the first time ever.....














.....but things didn't always go exactly how he'd planned it to.....



We learned a lot this season. For one, we learned that for sports purposes, M is a lefty like me! Once we got him on the correct side of the plate, his batting improved ten-fold!

He kept practicing..... working on his baseball skills throughout the weeks...



















It was so neat to see the kids all forge friendships.... become a team. They were all so proud to be Dodgers!










They learned about hitting....


















..about catching......












......and about running the bases.











They also learned some more important things...


....about friendship.....





















..about being a good sport...











and about sharing!















Mostly though, it was amazing to me to see my little boy.....seeming like such a big boy....seeming so much older than his four years....

Now, the season's come to an end...... but at least he has this to remember it by!

Beautiful photography!!

My 4yo niece played tball this spring and LOVED it! It was amazing to see how far they came from the first game to the last! I actually put together a little montage-video about it on my blog - http://corisbigmouth.blogspot.com/2010/05/maddies-t-ball-game.html.

It goes way, way too fast.......and I think most every age we go through, I stop and say, "No,....THIS is my favorite age!"...(well, except teen....I've yet to think teenager-dom is my favorite)

Thank you so much for the kind words about my pictures! I'm very much the novice, but I'm studying what I can, and practicing a lot! (to the point where if I pull my camera out, the littlest one cheeses)

Thanks again! I'm gonna go check out your blogs now!

Wonderful photos! I really enjoyed this post.

I take pictures all the time, too. When I pull out my camera, my kindergarten will pause and smile widely. So funny to see her pose.
