Well after several conversations between Landon and I we finally decided to start Grae in T-ball this year. He was so excited and so were we! The best part is that his sweet uncle Josh is the assistant coach and will be his best teacher. So I went out got the pants, the glove, the batting gloves (which are very important ;) and mixed in with a few hand me downs we were ready to go! After practicing at home I just knew Grae would be great! While he is the youngest on the team, he seemed to be picking it up pretty quickly. So, the first practice rolled around and Will came down with a fever so Landon and Grae went on without us. 2 hours later they came walking in the door. I knew from the look on Landon's face something went down at practice. Grae went off and had his shower and then went on to bed. Landon came and sat down on the couch with me...put his hand on my knee...sighed and said, "Well, honey we have the daisy picker of the team." I couldn't believe it! (Well I kind of could ;)He then went on to tell me that while Grae played in the outfield not only did he enjoy picking the weeds he thought it would be appropriate to act like a chicken (motions and sounds included) His team mates close by didn't appreciate that so they "kindly" told him to shut up. I was dying laughing listening to Landon talk about our little daisy picker like that. He just kept shaking his head and saying, Sarah...you should have seen him! I thought the story was over when Landon said after the huddle and yelling GO DODGERS Grae made a special trip over to Coach Carey to tell thanks and to give him a big hug. Of course as the mom I see my precious tender hearted Grae...such a lover but Landon had a talk with Grae on the way home to discuss fist bumps and high fives with the coaches...lets pass on hugs with coaches and save those for our momma. I am still laughing writing this as I can picture it as though I was there. Oh my litte Daisy Picker...how I love you!!!
We had our second practice today and he was much improved! No daisy picker tonight! We are so proud of you Grae!
