Baseball Season

Evan started his t-ball season a couple of weeks ago, and he loves it! Practices are a a couple of times per week, and he starts playing games next week. He can hit the ball off a tee pretty well, but he needs to work on fielding a bit. See the picture below!

His favorite part of t-ball is batting. We don't have a tee, so Mark pitches to him in the backyard. After his practice on Saturday, Mark took him to Wal-Mart to buy his very own batting helmet and bat. Definitely the highlight his his day.

I love, love, love this photo. He is going to have a hard time catching a ball when he is looking the other direction and his eyes are closed! But he is so cute... and he tries really hard. Mark and I praise him constantly and he responds really well to that.

We are working on the step-with-the-left-throw-with-the-right concept... and he is starting to figure it out. Oh, that tongue! I had no idea sticking out your tongue was required when throwing a baseball.

After a good practice I snapped this shot of Evan, Mark, and Rocket. This time it's Rocket who has his tongue hanging out. Love that little puppy. :-)
