Carli went to her first official pitching lesson on Thursday. Keith took her and Ava, Drew and I had a Bueno date. :) Keith said she really took to pitching and was engaged the entire time they were at lessons. Her pitching coach gave her homework of working on her drills for 20 minutes each day and so far, she's held Keith to going out to get her drills done. I've been impressed.
We've been working on Ava's "fear" of the ball. Every since she got waylaid by a ricochet ball she hit at batting lessons one night she's been a bit skittish of the call coming at her. So we borrowed some catcher's gear and suited her up. She did a pretty good job for her first time catching and I have to admit, this maybe the cutest pitcher/catcher combo I've ever seen!
