Blair had her first tee ball game tonight. She was so stinkin’ cute! I thought she was going to buck the black uniform, but she didn’t say a word – and then she wanted to wear her Minnie ears with it. She said, “Mama, I’m just gon’ wear my Minnie ears and take ‘em off at the ball game and put ‘em back on when it’s over.” Ok, lady!
She was so excited.
She hit the ball really well both times she batted. She is one of the youngest and the tiniest one on the team, and she hit just as well or better than some of the others.
Each team had 14 kids, so the field got a little boring for everyone. Each team bats through for two innings. And we don’t keep score or try to get outs, really. We are trying to teach our kids to throw to first after fielding the ball, but no one gets “out.”
I teased her about playing next year. At first, she was really skeptical about tee ball, but she loves it and is already talking about getting “signed up” next year. She always asks me if I’m signed up to coach! And she wants to know when we’re not going to be signed up anymore.
We’re looking forward to the rest of our games!
