The Sand Gnats - The Savannah Sand Gnats to be correct. That is the name of Henry's Blast ball team. He doesn't care that his logo is a gnat, he's just happy to have a hat and t-shirt and be on the team.
We had practice last night and at the end of practice, Coach gave out the uniforms. My kids face lit up, he was so excited to finally make it official. Hats were passed out first. He was beaming.
Then the shirts and at this age, the kids don't really care what number they get, they are just happy to get a number. Again, he was super excited. I do hope we can carry this number for a few years, because I kind of like it. He's #8. I don't know, seems like a good number.
This practice made Henry's day. He asked us if he could wear his uniform to school today, but we told him no. We did let him wear the hat, and he was so excited when I dropped him off this morning, he ran to his teacher and his friends to show them.
Saturday, we have our Opening Day parade. The kid might burst from excitement and I of course will be there taking pictures like the crazy mom that I am.
Here are some pictures from practice lasts night.
