4. She was absolutely devastated to learn that her game wasn't going to be played on a real "dirt" field.
She cried, "But Mama, how am I supposed to slide home if there's no dirt??"
What was I supposed to tell her? It broke my heart but the Tee- ballers are at the bottom of the priority list and baseball fields are at a premium around these parts.
She got to play pitcher during the first half of the game though, and it made her happy again. She got most of the balls hit straight to her. Pitching position is where all of the action is on the Tee-ball field!!
5. Here she is sprinting to third base! Notice her complete and total concentration as proven by the fact that she has her tongue in "serious" mode. Go speed racer!
6. For the last 33 years, my grandpa has been affectionately known as "Quak" (pronounced KWOK) by all of his grand kids. I am the oldest, and when I was a toddler I couldn't pronounce the word "Grandpa". Instead, it came out as Qua Qua. It got shortened to Quak, and the name stuck.
