Isaac decided to try out baseball this year, and played on a combo T-ball/Coach pitch team. They were the Cubs, and their team banner was so cute!
These pictures where he is wearing a red helmet are from his first game of the season.
He was so funny and kept putting his hat on backwards while he was in the dugout.
Here is cute little Keeley.
In this division, the coach pitched several times to each batter, and then would get out the tee if they couldn't hit one of the pitches. In his first game, Isaac had to use the tee to hit.
Nobody gets out in this division--they just go down the batting order and each kid gets to hit. Isaac was what they call the "homerun hitter," meaning he was up to bat last and was supposed to run around all the bases after he hit the ball.
Somehow, he got it into his head that he was supposed to slide into homeplate, and he did it everytime.
Here he is in the outfield.
And batting again.
There are a couple of kids in the way, but you can see him sliding in the above picture.
Here he is with his coach, Tiffany C. She was super patient and good with the kids.
After that first game, we bought Isaac his own helmet, and here he is at bat in his last game.
From about halfway through the season, he started hitting off the pitch everytime and didn't need the tee anymore. I was super impressed!
It was so fun to see how much he improved, and how much fun he was having.
Here is a picture of his whole team. They all did so great, and I actually really enjoyed watching them play.
I stay at home with 4 beautiful children--3 girls and 1 boy. Sareny is 9, Isaac is 6, Finley is 4, and baby Keeley is one! I've been married to my best friend for 15 years now, and we're still happy. Life is beautiful!
