Today was Daisy’s first t-ball practice. She’s been very excited about signing up for Little League and getting to be on a team just like Joey. Out of all the kids, she’s the one who likes to play ball with Joey out in the yard the most, and she’ll sit with him and watch the baseball channel for long stretches too. It’s cool having a girl who likes the girly things like ballet and the tougher stuff like baseball. There’s something that makes me proud, seeing her out there, the only girl on the team, wearing her brother’s castoff cleats and baseball pants.
Here are some crappy photos from today’s practice taken with my cell phone. I know – exciting stuff. Almost as exciting as looking at someone else’s vacation slides, right?
Daisy is the one in the blue pullover looking right at the camera. You can see Michael out in the field, and Joey came along to help out too (he’s fourth in line):
You know, t-ball is hilarious. The kids just really don’t have any idea what they’re doing. They’re running in all directions, or stopping between bases and turning around, or picking dandelions. Quite the comedy. But this is where it all starts.
Oh! And I have a job! Well, not really. But I did volunteer to be Team Mom! Funny how nervous I am about it, wondering if I can handle the responsibility. Ahhh, gone are the days when I felt so organized and competent and confident in my abilities. Anyway, not even sure exactly what it entails, but I’m it!
