Athena’s playing softball again this year; here she is up at bat and letting this particular ball get past her. In previous years, the coaches pitched to the girls; this year the girls pitch, which means lots and lots and lots and lots of walks. Well, I suppose they do have to learn. And it’s early in the season yet. Hopefully by the end they’ll get the hang of the pitching (and the catching. And the throwing. And the hitting — although some of them do just fine in that department). You may also notice Krissy in this picture, watching her little girl swing.
