Jacob started his Lil Sluggers class yesterday and had a blast. They learn basic t-ball skills including running the bases, catching ground balls, throwing the ball, and of course hitting the ball or "whacking" the ball as Jacob says. It's also great exercise and good for his gross motor skills. Oh and the best part is there are only 2 kids in the class, including him. The other little boy is his best buddy, Kenneth! Let's just say, he was sweaty and worn out after his class. He came home and slept for almost 2 hours. Plus he had his karate class earlier in the day which he also left with red cheeks!
He was so excited to wear his new t-shirt
Getting some instruction from the coach
And of course Luke had a great time too. He played with Kenneth's twin sister, Kayla. They ran around almost the entire time.
The past 2 weeks in karate they have been practicing for the upcoming tournament, which we didn't participate in. Not quite ready for a tournament. Anyway, when they wear this gear, it is called "sparring". Jacob wasn't too sure about this and looked a little sad that he was getting punched. But once he got the hang of it, he won both rounds he participated in.
