T-Ball season has come and gone.
I loved it that he said a little prayer with the team before the games in their huddle before the big “Go Dodgers!”
You never know the impact you might have on someone’s life just by doing little things. At the first practice one of the dad’s came over and told me that he’d graduated with Devin and that he played little league with him and that he remembered my father-in-law being his first coach and now DW was his little boy’s first coach. So sweet. :)
We couldn’t believe the improvement in the kids from last year to this year. They all run a little faster and hit a little harder, but they’re just as cute as they were last year! :) The new kids to the team did great for their first year, too.
We practiced a couple times a week for the first month… most of those practices DW and AB just went to. I wrangled Mamie & Tucker through a few of them, but we decided it was easier to just stay home. :)
She also enjoyed celebrating with sissy after games…
She even got an “out” at the last game! They don’t really play outs and everyone gets to run all the bases, but for those of us who count them in our head, it was a big deal! Ha.
Toward the end of the season, DW said he thought we needed to have a little end of the year team party. He said he remembered when he played little league and his Daddy coached them, he always took them out for pizza and to a Gator Baseball game and/or to their house for a pool party. We don’t have a pool and I knew we’d be crazy to take 16, 4-6 year olds to a college baseball game, so we settled on pizza at the park. Super easy and the kids had a great time. I made a few decorations to make it “festive” and thankfully our team mom was able to set it all up before the party. (The party was the same day as the Kindergarten field trip, so we came straight from the zoo.) She also made cute little favors for all the kids and they got those when they got their certificates.
One last “Go Dodgers!”…
It was a great season and we’re not sure yet if AB will play another year of T-Ball or move on up to Softball, but I’m pretty sure she’ll play one or the other. We went to watch our nephew, Warren, play soccer last week and she said, “I really miss T-Ball!”
