I love to play sports. I've never been an all star at any sport that I've played, but I've always enjoyed playing sports, and as a family, we enjoy being outside and playing sports together. Jayden has been playing sports for about 3 years now. We started out with basketball, then tried out some t-ball, added soccer to the mix, and this year she is moving on to softball. I think it's good for my kids to be active and getting out and meeting new friends and having fun. I really don't care what my kids do, or even if they're great at what they're doing, but they have to do something. It's my rule :)
Anyway, Sophia turned 3 almost one year ago, and I SO wanted to get her started in something. Soccer was my first choice, but the programs that I knew about, had different age requirements for kids with special needs. I was kinda bummed. So when I heard about this t-ball league from Sophia's preschool, I was happy, but a little worried that a flying baseball might not be right up her alley. Another mom let me know how great it was, and that it was just a very laid back, fun atmosphere. So we signed her up, and now she's a t-ball player :)
We play t-ball at home, and with our help, Sophia loves to put on Jayden's helmet, bat, and run the bases, or just a straight line out to where the pitcher is standing and back. Whatever she feels like :) She's very unorganized like that. So I wondered how it would go Friday, and looking back, it went exactly how I would have expected. She ran, and ran, and ran, and ran, and ran.....for about an hour, around the field. She'd run around the field, across through the field, stop to hug or maul someone, pick someone elses nose, throw some dirt, bat and then run half way down the first base line and veer off into the playing field, and then she ended the game being the center of attention...go figure. I'm not sure that Sophia's buddy knew exactly what she was getting herself into pairing up with Taz, I mean Sophia, but I hope she brings her running shoes again this Friday!
Number 4, that's my girl :)
First game, and she acts like she owns the place!
Running off with her preschool buddy...not sure he was willingly wanting to run off with Sophia though!
Again, on the move....
Sophia's fan club...she just can't stand to not be the center of attention! LOL :)
