Put Me In Coach...

...I'm ready to play, today...look at me, I can be...Center field. With apologies to one Mr.John Fogerty...*smile*
2 hours after completing her first 5K, our Miss Grace had her first softball practice! (the first was rained out, as was the one yesterday!) She enjoyed it so much but gosh! Was our girl ever tired by the end of the day! She was so excited about signing up to play in the local league this year. To quote my girl, "Mommy? I just want to experience everything, try everything and see what I like!" I think she *likes* softball! Her coaches are both wonderful, special people. Calm, patient and dedicated to teaching the game, fairness, good sportsmanship and to letting the have fun.
Grace and her Daddy work on her pitching technique...
It's in her glove! She caught it! It actually shocked her when she
did and what a grin...happy kid!
Incoming....
*Thwack* She connected! There it goes....

OH! I love softball! I played on an adult team for years. It was slow pitch softball and I was the pitcher. Grace looks like she has the knack for it!

Loved the picture of Grace catching the ball - her stance indicates her surprise. How great you caught the picture at that moment. Have a great Easter week. Sally

Just stopping by from Rue's. I saw your comment about Waynesville and Lebanon and figured you had to be close. We are in Middletown.

I loved playing softball all 4 years in high school. I have such great memories from it.

Hi Sue! Your blog looks stunning! I love the picture on your banner.

I'm glad that your daughter has some wonderful coaches. One's with integrity and good sportsmanship are hard to come by these days. I'm glad she's having a great time.
