|Looks like his Uncle Russ in the shot, sly smirk and everything!|
Decided to sign Calvin up with the Boys and Girls club for a fun community sport this year. He is having a blast. A very special something for him to do.
|Here he is stopping a ground ball. He's the one who obviously dove on top of it, sneakers in the air.|
Now, this is my first t-ball experience, and let me tell you something I found out about t-ball: It is a cheeks-hurt-from-smiling, go-home-feeling-great kind of event. See?...
T-ball is non-competitive. Every child bats each time. The fielders are loosely positioned. The goal is for each child to have a great time hitting, running the bases, and stopping and throwing the ball.
|In his new glasses! A post for another day. :)|
Calvin says his favorite part of the game is batting...
He also loves to run the bases. He was so cute, standing on the base, spacing out between hits. Suddenly the next player would hit, and Calvin would snap back to reality, running his legs in place before he took off down the base line. Road Runner Style! Meep meep!
Now, Calvin is on the smaller side for his team. He's certainly not the most coordinated or in-tune with sports. (And as we discovered, not the most practiced in standing "in-line"--he's all, what's a line? Why do I stand in it?). But he is thrilled with his ability. He is happy to have a special thing to do. He is drinking this t-ball thing up. And I love that about him.
