"There was no joy in Mudville that day"... but there was joy in Riverton when Elinor had her first softball practice! She got to play catcher for a little while and she has a pink mitt and that is about as good as it gets. She had a practice today also, but it was pretty cold.
Elinor is one of, if not the, youngest player on her team. But she had no interest in tee ball; she wanted coach pitch. I really enjoyed playing softball when I was younger so we'll see if Elinor likes it too. We think she has great hand/eye coordination.
