Another Softball Day
Today is Tuesday, and it's another softball day. Today Krissy plays. When she announce that she wanted to play softball, I think we were all a little apprehensive. She had tried soccer, and certainly didn't like it. I remember the one game when no one could find her, and she was in front of the crowd, seated on her pink soccer ball and rooting for her team. She didn't stick with dance or gymnastics, but she seems to have found her game. She loves softball, and is a really good hitter. She gets so upset when some of the girls don't know that you're supposed to throw the ball to a base when you get it instead of standing there watching the opposing team run the bases. Here she is playing shortstop, her favorite position. You can see how seriously she takes this game. The girl in background is Krissy's best friend, Ally. Kris used to be the same height as Ally, but has suddenly gotten a lot taller.
Here's Krissy at bat. Last game, she hit the ball so soundly that when Mr. Al, one of her coaches and Ally's dad, got hit with the ball, it knocked him down. But he dropped the ball (on purpose, I'm sure) and Krissy had a good hit instead of an out. She says hitting is her favorite part.
Here's a photo of Krissy and Ally making a play. Baseball has always been one of my favorite sports, and I love watching my grandkids play. Have a great day.
