First Library Card

Yesterday Philip accompanied Oliver on a trip long overdue to the local public library to obtain Oliver's first library card. We have, of course, been planning this moment since OP was about 4 years old. He's been worried about fitting his name in the little box provided on the card.

Finally it was time. He filled out the application himself, including his full name, address, and contact information (mama's). Then he checked out six books (there's no limit)--all about baseball!

A New Season

Today Oliver played the first game of his 2nd T-ball season. This year his team is the Marlins.

He is wearing #1--kind of fun, because he gets to experience both first to bat and last to bat (last batter always hits a "home run" or "grand slam" since all players must come in after the last batter's turn). He would be very happy for visitors to cheer him on at his games. He plays nearly every Saturday at 8am.

We're especially proud of the good work Oliver did on the pitching mound--not pitching, of course, but throwing the ball to home plate for the out. He likes the game and generally knows where the play should be.

Oliver was very proud of his papa, who coached in the field and at 3rd base today.
