Tuesday Coffee Chat

This week's Tuesday Coffee Chat prompt is ...

The last photo you took with a cell phone or a camera. Write a story about the picture in 10 sentences or less.

And she's SAFE!

In our softball league this year, rules were changed to allow the girls to steal home .... but they have to slide if the ball is in play at the plate. At the first sliding practice the other night, Brynne had, ummmm, problems sliding. She developed a fear of it and was dreading last night's game because she knew she would have to slide.

I told her that it didn't have to be pretty, she just had to hit the dirt. And hit the dirt she did ... on both her knees ... and she crawled quickly to the plate and touched it to be safe.

I love this picture. She immediately turned around and looked at me in the dugout. I don't know if you can tell by her batting glove on the right hand and her shrugged shoulder, but she is basically saying "Well, at least I did it!"

Love it, and her!


  1. she looks so proud of herself! and she should be.... way to go. you just have to commit... and get a little dirty, right?!
    This brings back great memories. I was never afraid of sliding into home.... I played 3rd base and that was scary enough sometimes!


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
