Scott has been waiting for this summer for at least three years. I was excited for it, too, but I was fine with time taking it’s time getting there. 

The girls started T-ball this summer. When we first told them we had signed them up, their groans shook the windows. But it took just one practice session with Scott to turn them completely around. They couldn’t get enough, begging to play every day. 

He signed up to be their coach, too, so it’s been such a fun experience for all of them. And a good chance to learn a bit about themselves. 

Claire was all nerves. Hanging back at practice. Running with hesitation. Telling me before each game, “I’m not ready! I haven’t practiced enough yet!” But after a few games, she found her stride and now runs with confidence. 

Grace, on the other hand, never felt more alive than she did that first game. The morning before, she was running, fell and hurt her ankle. She was so worried she wouldn’t be able to play, but Scott assured her the adrenaline would kick in and she wouldn’t feel a thing. That was an understatement. She plays with laser focus and 100% heart.
