Meet Mr. T-ball

X-man had his first t-ball experience with other children at a Savoy Recreation "Little Sluggers" class at Jones Park this morning from 9-9:45 a.m. He cried when we left he had so much fun. He was also overjoyed that Partner-in-Pre-School Sid was there to be his partner. She's the adorable one in the pink pants in the third photo that is also ducking to avoid getting a tennis ball in the face in the fourth.

All he wanted to do the whole lesson was get to the point where he got to hit the ball off the tee and run the bases. He was the last one to be able to bat in our small group. And rather than take the one base that they offered... he broke free and did all four for a home run. Overall, I was pretty entertained by the pre-school madness, and so happy we waited until he was four to sign him up for something like this. He so wouldn't have had the ability to do very well a year ago... while he was still working his way out of diapers.

We'll be at Jones Park every Saturday at 9 a.m. through May 22. And then we're hoping to get signed up for Little Illini soccer starting in June.

He looks like such a big boy in these pictures! So fun! And for some reason, looking at him in that green hat (in the 4th pic), I can totally see him as a high schooler, playing baseball. Is that weird?
