Evie is excited to be on a tee-ball team for the summer. She is pretty thrilled to have her own glove and cleats.
Yay Green team!
She is still learning, but slowly improving. She is finally able to catch the ball, so that's a big improvement.
Today after she hit the ball, everyone was saying, "run, Evie!" She got overwhelmed, and then picked up the ball to hand it to the other team. Then when everyone was saying, "no, run to first base", she went back and picked up the bat and started running with it, until the coaches told her to leave it. Then she ran back to home plate to set the bat down, and finally ran to first. As soon as she was safely on base, she grinned and waved. It was pretty cute, and I don't think she really knew why everyone was laughing. She was a good sport, and laughed right along with us.
So far she is loving it, and I think maybe by next year she'll really understand what she's supposed to be doing. She's definitely in good company with the other 4-6 year olds. There was maybe one kid today who seemed to have a grasp on how the game works. It's fun that they can all figure it out together.
