I had no interest in involving my four year old in any officially organized sport, but my family ganged up and decided differently. I had no choice about this t-ball ordeal. I’m grateful that tonight’s game was cancelled for rain. I’m more grateful for the rain, but honestly it feels like a big double win.
I’m just not interested in sports. If I go, it’s for the social aspect. I think the Little Farmer’s interest in sports might be hereditary.
T-Ball & Dirt <—This is a funny video!
I appreciate a good friend taking these pictures the other night.
His son, a varsity baseball player, just graduated from high school. His wife said the game they observed was baseball as it was meant to be played.
All Star T-Ball Catcher <— From a previous game…a really funny video!
I talked to my mom tonight as they were driving back from a day trip. I said, “T-ball was cancelled.”
She said, “Oh, that’s good.” Oh – as in, oh I completely forgot even though you gave me a schedule and told me again yesterday.
I said, “Yeah, you had something else to do, not because you were bored, but because you have legitimate demands on your time and it just didn’t work out to go to t-ball. That’s what I thought a few months ago when I didn’t want to sign an uninterested four year old up for this commitment.”
She said, “Easy, the game was cancelled and you were lucky to have a lot of practices cancelled because of rain. You can make the last game of the season this week.”
I’m grateful for kind, caring encouraging coaches and coaching help! Otherwise I would’ve sat on the bleachers and tried to actually learn how to use my smart phone while he was laying in the outfield.
