A "Rite of Spring" for many kids is learning to play baseball by joining a T-ball team. I like baseball for kids because it teaches coordination and teamwork. And paying attention.
Fresh out of school rooms, most T-ball age kids aren't ready to pay attention just yet. That is what makes watching T-ball games so charming for me...they can be comical to say the least.
In this picture, Ava is paying attention. She did pretty good for most of the practice, but if her eye caught a glimpse of one of her brothers, her mom, or me, her brain shifted gears faster than a dog spying a squirrel and lost all concentration.
So, knowing this, I did not take very many pics of her practice....pictures can come later, right now she needs to be left alone to learn.
Well...that's a pretty hard pill to swallow for a Nana with a camera; a Nana who takes gazillion pics every day.
But really, I've finally come to learn, who needs a gazillion when one or two tell the story?
