Summer sports

Abby had fun doing a few activities this summer--VBS, swimming lessons, t-ball, and gymnastics.  They were pretty spread out throughout the summer, and it was nice for Abby to get a little taste of several things. T-ball wrapped up this week, after 4 sessions.  Due to a weather cancellation one week, the sessions were a little more stretched out and went later into August than expected.  Abby had fun, but definitely preferred hitting and running bases over throwing/catching practice.  Abby especially enjoyed hanging out with her friends Alex and Olivia--especially on the last night, when they ended with a "game".  Whenever Abby, Alex, and Olivia were in the field, they spent their time chatting or discussing how they should stand--paying no attention to what was going on in the game.  Watching 3-5 year olds play a game of t-ball in general was pretty hilarious.  Here are some t-ball pics:












The kiddos were rewarded with freezie pops by the coach after the last session:


Gymnastics was one of Abby's favorite summer activities--something she'd never tried before.  It was pretty brief--just 3 sessions, but Abby's bravery increased each week.  She loved the different activities, especially the rope swing.



She worked her way up to jumping in the foam pit and walking on the high balance beam.  Here she is practicing on the low beam:


It's been a fun summer!
