Payton is the least-abled and smallest kid on the team, but he sure gives it a good effort. It's really growing on him and I can tell he's anxious to please his Coach Autumn. She's a great woman who just adores Payton (and Max). We're also fortunate to have our neighbor's boy on our team. Nico is just a few months older than Payton and they are about on the same level with throwing and catching. They're becoming fast friends.
Here is a video of him tonight at his second practice. The first time he hits, he had to come back because he threw the bat (automatic OUT in tball). Hence his hesitation after his second attempt. Not too shabby for only his fifth or sixth attempt at batting really. Now, we need to work on catching.
Maxwell is also getting into the team spirit. I think I'm going to make him a shirt that says "My Big Brother is a Green Machine!"
