Rachel is Back!

Rachel hurt one of her knees at the beginning of the high school season so she has been sitting on the bench for the last 7 weeks. She finally got to play this week.
Rachel got many chances to block.
I think her uniform needs to be longer.
Mallory was home from college for fall break and brought Natalie to the game with her. Natalie always hams it up when I take her picture.

Weekend of Baseball, etc...

Natalie's first game of fall t-ball
Batter Up
Monkey See, monkey do
Getting better at running the bases
Very excited to be playing t-ball
Bailey on base with attitude
A swing and a miss
What was she swinging at?
Joseph's got his eye on the ball
Good Swing
