Bradley Starts T-Ball
Our oldest grandson, Bradley, had his first T-Ball game last night. He and his cousin Jake both play on the same team so we had a large family cheering section for both boys with 3 sets of grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles and cousins there to cheer them on. I brought snacks which were a huge hit with both Isaiah and his cousin Jobie. Apparently Bradley was not happy that he did not get any of my snacks since he was playing ball while we ate them, but he did get a cupcake from the "snack mom" who brought them for the team. 😉
Bradley and Jake both did great in their first game and we were so proud of them. We had to laugh at Bradley though who took the whole spitting on the field thing, kicking dirt and making faces like the professional baseball players do to a whole new level. If nothing else, he is very entertaining to watch...now if he would only pay more attention to the ball when he is out in the field. Being 6 years old, the attention span is not quite there yet. 😁
Last night, on the way home from the game it hit me that we are entering yet another chapter in our lives. It is one that will be filled with going to different sporting events to see our grandkids play just like we did with our own boys. We are committed to going to one game a week since we have a half an hour drive to get there and it leaves little time once we get home for Jeff to relax before he has to get ready for work later in the evening. It means a lot to Bradley to have us there and he was so surprised to not only see us, but also his Uncle Jaysn, Auntie Rachel and cousin Steven show up for his first game last night. Next week he will also have his great grandparents (my parents) there to cheer him on also and I can't wait!
