This is a picture of her on the pitcher's mound at the last game. I was "dugout mom" that night so this is the only pic that I got of her playing. She normally played pitcher for one inning and outfield in the second inning. Our Coach was good about moving the girls around to play all positions. Last week, Alise actually played first base. When I saw her walk to the bag, I thought, "Oh, this can't be good!" simply because Alise can field a ball pretty well, but she's not much for catching and in t-ball, the girls are trained to throw it to first base. Would you believe she got TWO outs on first base that night and then another out on third when she was playing short stop in the second inning?? Then she hit the ball on the second pitch that night as well. I was one proud moma jumping up and down!! So, so happy for our little slugger!!
We had a GREAT first t-ball season!
By way of house news, I am happy to say that our floor was stained yesterday. I stopped by at lunch to take a peek and was told, "Don't freak out!" That's bad when the floor guy knows that you're a "freaker-outer." Anyway, he assured me that yesterday was the "ugliest" day and today would be the "oh, it's so beautiful" day. We'll see. But yesterday was ugly and I was so worried that we had wasted all our money on the floor! But apparently staining concrete goes through many, many phases....kinda like the Ugly Duckling story, I guess. Wayne even wanted me to take pics and I told him, "I'm not taking pictures of this ugly floor!" Wish us luck! Hopefully, we'll be painting by this weekend and the bathroom cabinets are suppose to be delivered early next week. Once the countertops are delivered, we should be ready to move in!! Yipee!!
