T-ball Trophy!

Last night was our final session of our t-ball season. The kids got to play a “real” game {consisting of two innings, everyone batting once, running to 1st, 2nd, 3rd base and then back to the dug out.}.

Jackson’s team started in the outfield. He’s running after the ball!


Why am I posting a picture of a girl standing waiting to bat? Well, as you can see if you look closely, every single member of the fielding team {Jackson included… he was standing by 3rd base!} has gone after the ball from the last hit. This was the typical occurrence after every turn.


Waiting to bat…


I didn’t get any pictures of Jackson at bat last night because well, he wasn’t being much of a good sport. He actually pouted and refused to bat the first time around. And then, when I walked over to go talk to him, apparently Belle followed—but kept going onto the field. She made it all the way to home plate before I even realized she followed me to begin with. Now she was eager to bat! Jackson did eventually bat, but not very enthusiastically. I’m not sure what not-batting thing was about—it’s normally his favorite part.

Here’s a video of Jackson from last week. The first 30 seconds are worth the watch. You’ll enjoy his path to first base. {my apologies for my loud cheering—but not really; I’m a proud Mama! Did you see how well he hit on the first try?! He didn’t even tap the tee!}

Back in the stands, here was Jackson’s fan club. In the whole 10 minutes that Jackson participated, all eyes were on him… but in the down time… all eyes on Belle. See how that girl has captured the attention of all of her Grandpa’s?!?  Ridiculous. 


Mostly, Belle and the other siblings were up to this:


After the game and getting snacks {my bargaining power to get Jackson to bat-- “You can’t have your gummy snacks or favorite juice if you don’t take your turn!}, the kids all got a special trophy from their coach.

You can’t really tell from the picture, but Jackson has a big smile and he’s feeling like the most special kid in the world at this moment!20120709_185938

And here’s my big kiddo with his trophy! He has carried it around most of the day and has asked what it says a million times {Tiny Tot T-ball 2012}. He’s so proud. And we are too. He learned a lot about the game and it was a good experience to listen to instructions from the coach and to play as a team! And he really does have good skills for being one of the youngest on the team!


Right after this picture, Jackson ran up to Grammy and showed her his “troodon”. Ha. Guess we’ve been talking more about dinosaurs than trophies these days. But he’s figured it out now and he loves it!
