Anyway, when Saturday morning came, he was very excited to wear his uniform! However, as we were driving to the ballfields, he said "But I don't know how to play t-ball." We all laughed and told him he will learn. We hadn't practiced with him at all, so he knew nothing! Thankfully the coach started out with them running the bases so they at least knew where they were supposed to go. Then we did a little hitting, throwing and catching (which didn't go well for any of the kids). After 30 minutes, they started a casual game with the orange team.

The game was hilarious! All of the kids were so cute in their uniforms, and everyone made at least one error. When Pres was up to bat for the second time, he carried the bat with him all the way to first base (that was a common one with the kids). There was one kid on the other team who hit the ball, ran up and got it (before anyone on our team could), then threw it to first base and got himself out! It was so much worse than the bad news bears....just comical!

Following the game, Steve bought Pres a good tee, 10 balls and a glove for himself so they could practice in the yard. I was happy he did it because he worked with Preston for an hour this morning! Hopefully Pres will really grow to enjoy it, and will improve drastically over the next couple of months. They are off for two weeks due to Spring Break, but then we are back at it until school ends.
