Due to Mother Nature, this was the t-ball season that seemed to go on forever. Tuesdays were practice, Wendesdays were games. Nearly every single Tuesday and Wednesday we were buried in snow or drenched in rain. It was crazy. The boys missed a few practices, but all of the games were made up, which pushed the last two games to a double hitter.
Since there was a foot of snow on the field and only four kids were in the team photo, we took some photos before the 6:00 game. Oliver is right next to coach Eric.
Oliver has really enjoyed t-ball. From the first game to the last, he smiled ear to ear and bounced as if he was playing on a cloud. He loved it!
It was fun to watch his skills grow through the season.
Improved skills or not, Coach Eric always knew to hold the bat on the backswing setup.
Each setup came with explicit directions on where to hit the ball for the perfect shot.
Swing batta batta...
Whew! Safe on first.
After the first game, Coach Eric gave out the medals for T-Ball.

Nice Job Buddy!
We're SO proud of you!
Oliver and Grant, another buddy from Primrose.
Photo Bombs turned Dog Pile!
In between the two games, we took another team photo since a few more team mates arrived.
Oh yes, Kellan was there, with Mickey Mouse on the tiny screen.
The next game, Oliver got to play the coveted first base. He was SO excited as he had been talking about it for days, maybe weeks.
Oh yes, he's got moves and oh yes, this would have been an out, if they actually had outs and not all players got to score.
It drove Oliver a tad crazy that there was no official score, but it was a good lesson about not always focusing on who's winning or losing and instead learning how to play the game and have fun.
The ready pose, complete with tongue in place.
Up to bat again and ready for a big play.
Nice Job Oliver and Team Rockies!
Oliver had a GREAT season, once Mother Nature quite throwing down snow.
