Another Sunday; another fun day at the ballpark. A pregame rain delay gave Alan an extra 35 minutes or so at the train table inside the Kids Clubhouse. In addition to playing with his usual toys inside the Clubhouse, Alan also posed for the pictures above and below for the first time — something I had been trying to get him to do all season. I thought they turned out pretty well!
Out on the Family Deck, Alan beat ketchup in a simulated race, hit in the Little League Park (pictured below from a new vantage point this time), and climbed the Lofton wall (which I caught on video for the first time). Alan finished off the afternoon by circling the bases!
Today Alan took another step closer to being ready for Kindergarten. He’s now a safety town graduate!
Alan was fortunate to have Natalee in his class with him this week. He told me they sat together on the bus ride during the bus safety lesson because they are best friends.
Alan also told me his favorite activities of the week were when the kids got to go inside a police car and fire truck. It was like a dream come true for him!
Today Alan and I watched the Indians close out the unofficial first half of the season at Progressive Field. Alan had a surprisingly quick stay inside the clubhouse, as he was in a hurry to get to the big kid activities on the Family Deck! Alan got to pitch to simulated batters, hit in the Little League Park (pictured above), jump at the Lofton wall, and run a simulated race (pictured below).
Thanks to a 46-minute 5th inning, Alan was finished with his activities well before the game was over. So we sat and ate in the Right Field District, then got in line early to run the bases. Alan was first in line and got to lead all the kids onto the field. Alan loved being the line leader! He brought me out of retirement to circle the bases with him this time. 🙂
Just look at that form!!
Today Alan saw the movie The Secret Life of Pets with Grandma Debbie and Uncle Josh, who’s on leave for 2 weeks! Judging by Alan’s comments afterwards, his favorite movie character was the head-banging poodle haha. I was glad to hear that Alan stayed through the whole movie. His level of patience is definitely improving.
Just playing some ball on the 4th!
LeBron has a running mate on Alan’s bedroom wall now: Alan’s second favorite player, Kyrie Irving!
