I'm a total scardie cat.
Worst athlete ever.
A ball coming at me is not my idea of fun.
The one year I did play a school sport, the volleyball coach would only put me in for the last two seconds of an already won or lost game and gave me the Sportsmanship award at the end of the season. I was that pitiful.
I couldn't run a mile without stopping, even if a bear was chasing me.
Still, I have this desire to love the sport of baseball as much as my husband and his family, so together we can share the all-American pastime with our kids.
Despite my infant scapegoat (you know the line... "I can't because of the baby, but you go and have fun"), I decided to join in and try tossing and hitting the ball with the kids today for homeschool PE.
I'm still lousy at it, but we did have fun! We worked up an appetite for a baseball-themed afternoon snack: Tyler Florence's caramel corn. Yum!
