6/3/2010 T-ball night

I have mixed feelings about T-ball almost being over. It makes for hectic evenings, but so fun!

Julian doesn't stand out on his team as being particularly good or bad, he's pretty average at everything. Well, except paying attention, he's on the low end of that. But, he did great batting today!

The first-baseman (basegirl) on the other team was one of the two best T-ball players we've seen yet, the other standout being the boy who caught two pop flies in one game. What makes both these excellent players excellent is not just their skill in all areas, but how they're so attentive. The coaches spend 2/3 of their effort getting kids to look and pay attention.

The video above wasn't a great example of a play she made (lousy throw to her), but you can see she's really on the ball (hah hah). Within a group of 6- and 7-year-olds, that's saying a lot!

Two more games, one party, one afternoon of closing ceremonies. Whew.
