Rally Cap

Yesterday was the day! The first day of Rally Cap.

Here he is laughing at something funny one of the coaches said:
Would you look at him?! He was a bit nervous before he started. You see, this was his first "team" anything. He's also a bit scared of the ball and he was afraid of getting hurt, but once he saw the balls were soft, he started loving it! This is not quite T-ball, it's called Rally Cap. When you play T-ball, you play the game. In Rally Cap, they get you ready for T-ball. They show you how to hit, catch, throw and run bases. In a few weeks, if he wants to, he can start playing T-ball or he can decide to stay in Rally Cap. They did 20 minutes of everything today except running bases because the city hasn't brought the bases to the park yet.

All the fathers and mothers who wanted to could help out, since there are 60 kids, so Keith helped out (I had to stay with Kira and take pictures!)

Look at that face!

Getting ready to learn how to catch:

He was paired up with Emilie, the daughter of one of Keith's childhood friend, Marc. Marc is actually Keith's coach at softball! You could say it's all in the family!

Sean pitching to Keith:

And what was Kira doing this whole time? Why, getting dirty, of course!

Life is not a race. Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.♥

What an awesome thing to do for kids! I wish they had this in my area...my kids were thrown into t-ball and it was sink or swim...they choose to play in the dirt and wear their mitts for hats. :) Have a great week!
