Playin' Ball

Oh my goodness, like I really needed yet another reason to love PVC pipes!!!

Just hammer it into the dirt and voila! A perfect T-ball stand. 

Well, not perfect:
A few rocks around the base made it stand up straight after the first few times it was hit with the baseball bat.

A motivating time to practice waiting in line. Some early childhood educators think lines are a developmentally inappropriate practice.  I disagree--if they are voluntary.  This line was for a turn at bat. Very motivating.

I love my new really fast camera! It got all of the awesome postures---those mid-movement body positions that we miss with the naked eye.

Some poses were more intentional : ) She did lots of post-batting poses.

Stay tuned for a post about our baseball-inspired board story and some reflections about that!

Thank you for the comments! Always appreciated : )

We'll just skip circle time today.

This morning, I thought the kids and I would go outside a little extra early, enjoy the nice cool weather, do the art project I had planned ...
