Well, it's finally here.... the moment Roen has been anticipating for 2 years. Ever since Remi started playing t-ball two years ago, Roen has patiently been waiting for his turn on the field.
Remi did NOT want us to sign him up this year. Micah decided that Remi needed to play with his little brother and signed him up anyway. Last week, when we told the boys their first practice was approaching, Remi burst into tears and got really upset because 'he told us he did not want us to sign him up'! He has eventually warmed up to the idea and surprisingly, has had a wonderful attitude thus far.
The day before practice, I took the boys to get some new bat bags, mitts and cleats. They had a blast picking everything out.
On the way to practice, Remi LOVED telling Roen what to expect from practice.
Their first practice went great. As soon as we got there they split the kids into different groups (batting and catching/throwing). Remi and Roen did not end up in the same group which seemed to make Roen a little nervous. Poor thing... he really does rely so much on his big brother. Roen is so very very shy and wants to please so much that as the coach was helping him with this batting form, I was a bit afraid he might start crying. But, he didn't. I hope this will help him come out of his shell a bit.
I am so excited for t-ball this year... having both my boys out on the same field is something I have looked forward to for a very long time.
Pictures before practice (Remi is over taking pictures and informed me that he did not like taking pictures anymore)...
And a few from practice...
