One of Diana's many summer activities includes t-ball. She's never played baseball a day in her life and we have barely played catch with the girl in her six years of existence. When we have played catch, it's been with a basketball. Certainly nothing as small as a baseball. But her friend from track season was playing so we decided to give it a shot.
Diana is not the best player on the team, but she's not the worst either. She has a smile on her face the entire time she's out there and that's all that matters to me. She's in the senior division which means that the games are not that hard to watch from a talent standpoint (most of the kids should be playing Little League or Bobby Sox).
Here's Diana at opening ceremonies last Friday.
Here she is warming up before her first game on Saturday morning.
Diana getting some batting advice from her coach. Yes, she is wearing a skirt. I tried to tell her that she needed to wear shorts, but "Daddy said it's OK because it's sporty!" was the reply I got. Matt suggested that we needed to get her some baseball pants and I said heck no! I especially was against that idea when I saw one of the girls on Diana's team wearing baseball pants and they were super baggy in the crotch area (enough room for a cup!). Those things are not made for girls. Gramma V suggested waiting to see if Diana requested baseball pants after the first game. I said "Mom, my daughter is wearing a skirt. Do you think she's gonna request baseball pants?" Enough said.
She reached base a couple of times. I love this photo because the first baseman is totally checking her out! :)
And here is Diana's No. 1 fan, watching her from behind the fence. Amy wanted to be out there so bad!
She now has two games a week until the week before school starts. It's going to be a busy month for us because she's in camp this week again. She's also taking gymnastics one day a week. Hold on for the ride!
