How many more days until Saturday?
"How many more days until Saturday?" This is the question we've gotten from Charlie every day since t-ball started last Saturday. He LOVED it! My good friend Elisa got us involved with this particular t-ball group. They call it 'backyard ball' and there is a family in her (Elisa L.'s) neighborhood who found families in the area with kids aged 4 and 5 and were able to put 2 teams together with 9 on each team. Every child pays $10 so they can have matching t-shirts and a trophy at the end, and that's all for fees. We have 'games' each Saturday; we get together for an hour and during the first half hour the kids divide into three groups: hitting, throwing and catching. During the second half hour they play a game. The parents provide drinks and treats and several of the dad's, including Scott, help out during the first half when all the kids divide into groups for practice.
