So for the first time (in my knowledge) our church has decided to start up a softball team and play in the Dallastown League. This past Thursday they had their first practice, and needless to say, they were...umm...awful ;) I actually got a kick out of watching them cause they seemed to have no clue what to do. Some of them have played on teams for other churches before, but warming up was a bit rough. They have greatly improved though, thankfully ;)
Anyway, here are a few pictures from the first practice. I think videos would have captured it better, but I didn't think of it at the time so you'll just have to see pictures.
"Say what...? How do I hold this thing again?" (lol)
I think the best part of the evening was when my cousin came over to the park on a horse from the nieghboring farm and took me for a ride! I haven't ridden in such a long time, so I was terrified. And since we were riding in a corn field, I was envisioning being impaled by a cornstalk if I should happen to slip off (which I almost did once with a squeal ;) But you must understand, there was no saddle to speak of, and two people on a horse isn't the most comfortable thing in the world. But it was all worth it ;)
There were other "better" pictures, but I prefer not to show them since I am clinging like a desperate leech to that poor horse while my cousin was trying to get off, and my face is twisted into a most unattractive pose of fear and a great desire to live to see tomorrow ;)
