Hello to Sunny
Well... t-ball was... as ds said, could have been worse.
DGS got three pretty good hits, (it's good that you get five strikes in t-ball) -- but when he was in the field (left field) , he spent 99% of his time squatting down, playing in the dirt, and actually facing center field, or totally with his BACK to the field! Oh my.... at first, he was the only one acting like that, but as the game wore on, as dh said, it spread like a cancer, and at least two little girls joined in in the scratching in the dirt fun. And going on and off the field, he just sorta ambles along. (Nobody's going to nickname this kid Charley Hustle anytime soon.)
He also refused to wear a helmet -- probably b/c he doesn't have one of his own -- ds said they would be getting him one. (DS couldn't remember if they wore them in t-ball or not.) I asked ds if he needed cleats, and ds said, "Does he LOOK like cleats would be a wise investment???" LOL... Some of the kids wore cleats and some did not, so I don't guess that is a requirement.
Oh well... may be a long 6-8 weeks. OTOH -- his team is kinda stacked. We won this practice game 20-3, I think. (DH was trying to keep up with the score in his head.)
