I actually got it together this spring and signed Adam up for T-ball.  We decided to try out something more than the YMCA, and we are so glad that we did!  I asked some friends with older kids, and got two great recommendations, and decided to go with the Mountlake Terrace Youth Athletic Association (MTYAA).  This is Adam's last year to play T-ball, (next year will be coach pitch) and he has learned SO much!  It's amazing to watch him and see how much more coordinated he is.  I think it's a combination of growing into his body, learning different excercises and such in PE at school, and just getting older.  He really likes to play, and it's fun to watch him!
His team is the Fireballs!  His coach has been coaching for several years, and one of the parents on the team has even found a couple of sponsors, so they got these cool jackets!
 Here's Adam in the outfield. He's even got the stance down!
 This is from one of the first games.  Adam can really smash the ball!  Now, towards the end of the season, the coach is pitching to some of the kids.  Adam loves to hit, and if he pays attention to his stance, and watches the ball well, he can really hit it far!  I have a couple of videos, but once again, I can't seem to get them from my iPhone to the blog...
 Adam was so excited to get his own batting helmut!  Of course, it had to be orange!
 Here are the spectators at his first game.  It was cold!!  I'm glad the weather is getting warmer!!
 Kate enjoying the game!
Adam has really enjoyed playing T-ball this year.  It's been so fun to watch him progress and learn so much more this year.  I think he'll be playing for many years to come!

Oh, I remember sports in the Northwest! Our best investment was a big golf umbrella. Two of us could sit under it and not have any run-offs.
