My girlie has been playing softball on a new team this season. She loves it. The coaches are supportive and encouraging and tough. A good combination for her and the team. The other girls are fun and also super nice. Another bonus.
Claire had a swinging slump for awhile at the beginning of this season. We just couldn't get her to swing the bat! With a lot of encouragement, she's finally swinging! She's even hitting the ball!!
Today for her first at-bat, she hit two foul balls and ended up striking out. For her second at-bat, she hit three foul balls and then hit a strong ball between first and second. By chance, a girl on the other team ran, reached out and caught the ball mid-air; a great catch for her, not so good for Claire. But, hey, everyone (meaning Mom and Dad) was super happy she simply had a good hit! It's the little things in life.
