Fall softball is underway. Emily has had a couple of practices. But the month break from hitting and catching is pretty evident, and we felt like she needed a little bit of extra practice at home. So, the other night, Eric took her outside to work with her. At first, she was having a pretty good time. But, then a couple of minutes later, she wasn't.
Even though I have told her, and told her that the only way you get good at something is with lots and lots of practice - she still gets very frustrated when she can't catch a ball or hit a ball within a few tries. So, then there are tears. And the hitting and catching get worse because, really, who can see through those tears?
And doesn't she know? There's no crying in baseball. Or softball, either.
