Well, The Stickles Family officially has it’s first Little Leaguer! Ethan is playing T-Ball! I have 4.5 LONG years to get this sweet boy in a ball uniform! Growing up with a brother playing ball and attending countless baseball tournaments all over the South, baseball is sort of in my blood. I love it! I have to say though.. back in my high school and college days there were certain boys who I thought were the cutest things to ever put on a uniform.. well, NO MORE! They have most definitely been replaced! Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce you to Ethan Stickles, T-Ball MVP! ;)
Gray thought T-Ball was pretty fun!!
Look at that sweet boy.. a natural!
Prayers for a good game!!
His first up at bat! His coaches were awesome!! So supportive and great with the little guys!
Look at that swing!
After a while, Gray was way more interested in exploring!
He found a tricycle and couldn’t resist giving it a try.
He looks WAY too big!
Getting a pep talk before hitting again.
I signed him up for the SK league instead of the JK league (my mistake!), so he was definitely the youngest and smallest on the team. But, don’t worry.. he kept right up!! He’ll definitely be ahead of the game next year!
Sliding.. they were all about the sliding!
Crazy story… We were watching the game and LK was playing on the playground right next to us. All of a sudden, she came running over to us holding her eye. She had run into a boy. Her cheekbone was swollen and immediately turned black and blue! She had a black eye for DAYS!!! It was hilarious that out of everyone I could have imagined getting an injury at a T-Ball game, I definitely didn’t think it would be LK.
She obviously didn’t like me taking her pic!
After game high fives!!
After game prayers!
If you were wondering if he enjoyed himself.. look at that face!
We are LOVING ball season!!! I’ll update with more games soon!
