Saturday was the beginning of the boys’ baseball career, with their first official game being played. They both exceeding my expectations (I may have set my bar low) and I dare say I almost had fun, with minimal stressing (stressing out is what I do best). Doug is one of the 2 assistant coaches and he has his hands full on the field, trying to keep (11) 3-4 year olds attention on the game at all times. Granddaddy, Nana, GiGi, Hutch, and Coco all came to cheer on the boys. There were several laughable moments, including our teams’ 1st time in the outfield, and the 1st batter hit a ball far and what seemed like all 11 players ran and piled up on top of the ball, and then didn’t move, which resulted in a “home run” for the other team since they all laid on the ball. Another funny moment was a field by us decided to release tons of balloons into the air, thus capturing the attention of every kid on our field, making them completely forget they were playing a teeball game. I am fairly sure we lost our 1st game, but at this point that is only a part of the event of a teeball game. Sure, I would love for us to be undefeated, but I think we will be entertained no matter what.
B and S having their own game near 3rd base:
