Giving Up Soccer Mom Status...

For T-Ball!!!

The boys have been playing soccer at their school once a week. They play with an organization that focuses on skills & not competition, so they don't actually play against other teams. It's been good in the physical activity aspect, they are WORN OUT when I pick them up & they do love soccer. I feel kind of bad about them not playing at school anymore because Kellan's BFF plays & he loves his time with her but it is rather expensive for what they do (& for 3) & it's on the same day as one of their T-Ball practices.

Sort of out of the blue the boys all expressed an interest in playing T-Ball so when I was chatting with a friend & she mentioned sign ups were NOW (then) I immediately paused the conversation to sign the boys up! 
The boys were super excited when I told them & again when I got their little gloves. The day I got them they wore their gloves & ran around the house pretending to catch balls the whole afternoon. 

Garren diving for a catch (there wasn't an actual ball involved, lol)

Learning the bases

Kellan learning to hold & swing a bat correctly

Garren hit the ball so hard he spun all the way around, lol

They're all so little!!!

Caden hitting a pitched ball

Garren whacked one too :)

Kellan was the most proud of his hit!!!

The boys are doing great, Caden & Kellan are throwing much better than when they started practices & they can all hit the ball pretty well. Caden still struggles with running to first after a hit, one night he ran to third instead & sometimes he just watches everyone chase after his ball, lol... but he's getting there. 

Kellan didn't want to go last week because he said because he didn't throw very well. After some pep talks & encouragement he was excited again and after hitting the ball last night, he is super stoked to play again! Thank goodness :)
