Spring Spent on the Field

It is amazing how quickly your Saturdays change from weekends where you get to decide what the agenda is, to all of the sudden sports determine your weekend schedule.  We got a sneak peak at that this spring!  With Bradley playing “real baseball” for our local league Ellie decided that she HAD to play t ball like her big brother!  Her little experience with baseball was called blastball.  The children hit the ball and run to first base.  There is a small horn inside of the base, and when they step on it the base the horn sounds.  It is the funniest thing to watch!  Ellie loved hitting off of the tee, but she had no interest in trying to field the ball.  She was the only girl on her team and I was so proud of her for trying something new on her own.

One morning there was perfect lighting and a sweet girl who was hamming it up for the camera:

The best picture I could get of Ellie and her buddy Kellen after the game:DSC_0116

And this little girl did her fair share of watching blastball and bradley’s baseball.  She was a good sport about hanging around by the field.  Here is Grace testing out the horn sounding base before Ellie’s game.

And just some sweet shots of her watching one of Bradley’s last game while wearing an outfit that my Mom made for me when I was little.  How sweet is she?

And yes, she is in love with band aids right now…that is why there are just under 15 band aids on her legs in these photos!

I think Ellie wanted to take after her Auntie Lindsay more than after her brother (hehe)! Great pictures Clare! My favorite is Grace's sweet smile on the base and the sly smile on Ellie's face in the first picture! Love you!
