Paige had her first game yesterday and I loved every minute of it.
Here they are in their team huddle. Can you say cute?
Here is her Dad trying to explain the intricacies of hitting off the tee.
I think this very serious looking fellow behind her made her a little nervous. I think he was scouting for the other team.
She hit the ball and off she went to first base. Look at hubbies face, he was astonished at how far she hit that ball (not really, but it makes a good story).
It cracks me up how slowly she runs. I think she could walk faster. Seriously.
I remember getting a phone call from pre-school one afternoon about another child (who will remain nameless) that had a similar slow run. The school was concerned by how slow he ran. Perhaps there was something wrong with him. It seems funny now, at the time, not so much.
That child outgrew his slow gait and is now an excellent athlete. I'm pretty sure Paige will also out grow her timidness as she gets better at running the base paths.
Until then, it sure is cute to watch.
Yesterday our family had the t-ball game at 8:00 a.m.. Garrett had a 9:00 basketball game which Zach took him to. After t-ball we ran to basketball to see the last few minutes of the game. We grabbed breakfast at i-hop before heading home. I took a little nap and then jumped up to figure out dinner for the kids who did not want to go back to the field for Garrett's 4:00 baseball game. Samantha had a friend sleep over on Friday so they had been happily playing all morning. Her friend got picked up, I got dinner for the kids, and rushed over to the the game. Zach had a game at 2:00 and 4:30 for his baseball team. They were both out of town so he had to go alone. Thank goodness for teenagers who are old enough to drive themselves. After Garrett's game we had a pizza party for his team. Zach joined us there for dinner after his games. One of Garrett's friends came home with us after the pizza party to spend the night. We all fell into bed about midnight.
Are you tired yet???? I am.
So, as a recap. We had 5 games in one day. 4 baseball. 1 basketball. There were 4 victories, 1 loss.
Zach has one game this afternoon at 3:30 which we will all go to.
Baseball season is in full swing, and I must admit, I love every single second of it.
Have a Blessed Sunday my friends.
