Opening Day!

Today was the Cubs first game of the season. They played the Cardinals. It was a great morning for a game- 80 degrees, cloudy and everyone was in a great mood!

*Warming up

*Team huddle

*Our Little Cub

*Caleb and Brandon. Brandon and Caleb are in the same Kindergarten class and sit at the same table.

*The coaches

* In the dugout, ready to play

*Caleb in his catchers gear: They rotate through 2 positions during the game and Caleb has been the catcher and left field

*Baseball Ready!

*Keeping his eye on the ball

*Up to bat (we were waiting on the catcher from the other team- he held his position for a few min)

*The swing (1 of 3)

*Running to second base

*Running home (Had to go back since it was a foul ball)

*Running home again- was a little confused since the t-ball stand was still on the base

*In the outfield

Caleb seems to really enjoy playing baseball. He isn't too fond of catching, but his coach seems to think since he has great balance that he would be great at catching. Caleb has been a good sport, and continued to catch. 90% of the time he hits the ball off the pitching machine. He has only hit of the tee maybe 4 times since we have been practicing till now. He will have games once during the week and then on Saturdays. They don't really keep score, but I think we would have won if they did! :)

So cute! And what a great sport to play... :)

Ted was very excited to see that Caleb was following in his mom's footsteps as a catcher!
