Jake woke up on Saturday morning and was not acting like himself. He was grumpy, didn't want to eat, didn't want to get dressed for tball, etc....finally, I asked him what was bothering him and he said he was nervous for the game! He was nervous because he didn't practice the night before (it was raining) and nervous because he wouldn't know anyone. Poor thing. I told him that he'd know Maddie (a friend from school, and they played on the same team last year) and that he didn't know his team in the spring when they started either, but then they all became friends. He cheered up a bit, then he was fine once we got there.

Poor thing tried to line up with the team and sit down on the bench. Then he kept trying to break away and go onto the field and get the balls. He even joined the team for their snack after the game....I've decided he will be the unofficial mascot of the team this year.
Jake did a great job, despite his fears, and after the game said he had so much fun. He had a few nice hits, too!!
