Okay... we aren't cruel and unusual parents! LOL This is Al trying to teach Briley how to catch the softball using her glove and developing her hand-eye coordination. I'm sure this is only the beginning of many, many more front yard sessions between the two of them. Al is coaching Briley's softball team this year and instead of playing another year of T-Ball, she wanted to play coach-pitch. I'll keep you posted as to how well she does. Last year, we didn't even finish the season, she was bored with it by the third or fourth game! Maybe it will be more fun if her Dad is the coach?
