Another new change this Spring was T-Ball. Taj played on an Advanced T-Ball team. What that means is the first three to four are pitches and if the child cannot hit the ball then a baseball T is brought out for the child to hit off. Everyone gets to hit and there are no true outs. We went to every game and enjoyed watching him. Taj is a huge Cubs fan and his favorite player is Kris Bryant. He was very disappointed when he saw his number was not the same as Bryant’s. Taj did great at batting and could hit the ball pretty far. We found out that he is a rather quick runner. (No surprise since his Dad runs in track events still.) Fielding, well the entire team needs more practice at the fielding. It was so funny to watch because the entire team goes after the ball leaving their positions. One thing Taj kept saying he wanted was batting gloves, so for his birthday we bought him batting gloves and gave it to him at the game he played on his birthday. He was so thrilled and held them out to all of his teammates to like a woman does with her engagement ring.
The twins came earlier than Taj’s birthday ( I will post about them on Friday) so Taj’s party was not as large. The twins were in the hospital still, Ethan and Noah (not knowing when his party was going to be) went to Florida to visit Joshua for a week. They went to the game on Taj’s birthday and flew out the next day. Matthew (not knowing when his party was going to be) made plans to go to his girlfriend’s family get together so he was not there as well. It was just me, Todd, Kera, Taj, and one friend of Taj’s. We went to Chuck E Cheese in a city about an hour away and Taj had a blast with his friend. He had a good birthday party.
