What a block!
Rachel was a blocking machine.

Rachel blocked many, many balls.
Rachel got good at directing the ball when she blocked it.
She didn't do too bad in the hitting department either.

T-Ball Fun

Bailey and I took Natalie to this week's T-ball game.
Rachel passed the time helping out in the concession stand.
Natalie waits her turn to bat. She doesn't like to wear her hat.
"My turn"
Natalie knows to swing when the ball is patched.
Natalie is getting good at hitting the ball off the tee.
Natalie doesn't like to stand on the bases. The first baseman
looked like he was wondering what she was doing down there.
On third, she was looking in the outfield.
When she got home she thought it was time for her to bat again.

I just love this picture.

Playing Dressup?

Rachel took some time out of her busy schedule
to play dress up with Natalie and Bailey.
