Lydia's first baseball game

Lydia is playing baseball this summer, the first sort of organized sports activity she has ever played. {Arlene wants no part of playing baseball. She'd rather cheer on the sidelines. She doesn't like to sweat.} Lydia had her first game on Saturday and it was just adorable! The kids are all 7-years-old and most don't have any clue what to do. There's a lot of bodies running around the field and baseballs going here and there. It was really hilarious. And FUN! The kids had a lot of fun. 

Thank goodness the game was moved indoors because it was 102 degrees outside! They don't keep score - each player gets to hit in each inning and everyone's a good sport about helping each other figure out what to do and where to go. 

The indoor game made getting pictures sort of difficult but I did get some cute shots of our little ball player:

Look at that stance! She's ready man.

This is Lydia's only other girl teammate Isabella - I liked the way she tied her shirt in the back!
Good form! The coach pitches but if they can't hit the pitch it gets placed on a tee. Lydia hit one off the tee and one off a pitch.
She got on first base and was incredibly proud of herself! At this angle I do believe she is looking into the stands at her cheering section!
The two girls on the field. 
Batting again! 
After the game - all smiles! Did I mention her Daddy is the coach?!

How fun and she is such a cute ball player!!

I love that she is doing looks like she had fun!

I laughed when you said Arlene doesn't like to sweat...hahaha!

That is cool they are finding their own interests as well.

This is just adorable! How fun is it to watch them become "independent" doing these sorts of things?

"Arlene doesn't like to sweat." That is great. . . I love a girl who knows what she wants--and doesn't want.

Thank you for your comment on the blog today. I've always wondered what it would be like to have twins. . . I can only imagine that there is NEVER a dull moment.
