As a mama I love having a front row seat to my kids' childhood. I especially enjoy witnessing every "first". This afternoon Owen officially made his debut in an organized sport! He has spent long enough sitting on the sidelines watching his big sister participate and now he is ready to shine!
His t ball team is the Mudcats and our church youth minister and friend Charlie is his head coach this season. He doesn't seem to
mind notice that he has most of Emma's equipment handed down. Daddy even spray painted her bright pink helmet shiny silver! Owen did, however, get to pick out a snazzy new pair of Under Armor cleats at Academy. He promised they would make him run faster around the bases! He must have literally asked the question "Is it time for practice?" a hundred times throughout the day! He was thrilled when 5:30 finally rolled around. He was all smiles as we headed to the field:
His practice started with stances and stretches:
Then a little running to get things going!
Ready for catching drills:
Reviewing the bases:
Loving it!! :)
Emma's team (the Magic Diamonds) had practice at the next field. Needless to say, we will be spending a lot of time out at the ball field this Spring!
