Batter up!

We have finally managed to get Xander into the school T-Ball team. Though it was a bit hairy seeing as we didn't know what team he was in until Friday and they had their first game on Saturday! Not very well organised, but that seems to be because of the school camps etc, but it was even a bit of a shambles at the game too. Needs more organisation... Alan, do you want to step in?

Even more concerning was the fact they had TWO games! Xander had a practice at school on Thursday lunch time and a little session with Alan in the driveway on Friday afternoon.
The first game was interesting - learning the rules, learning how to hit the ball and where to throw it when fielding. Xander hit his stride in the second game, while most of the kids seemed to be flagging - we were there for 3.5 hours!

I think i've committed myself to helping with practice at lunchtime on Thursday at school. Oh and i was nominated to pick players of the day! I really wanted to pick Xander - yep very biased!! - as he did so well, was on the ball and chasing it when it was hit, throwing his little heart out and having the best attitude all game.... yeah, i think this one is going to be hard, I can't pick Xander every week!
The school organiser is getting a trophy so the fun will begin next week.
