i know, louissa has been going beyond her comfort zone recently. when she went shopping a few days ago with her sister, she actually spent some time looking through different knit shorts because she’s decided to keep running this summer. this would be the third time in her life she’s ever looked in the sportswear section.
then this afternoon found her outside with her youngest sister and brother playing baseball. well, it was more like batting practice since it didn’t involve bases or running or even catching for that matter. she was the pitcher, her sister and brother took turns hitting and then she had the bat and her sister was pitching. after hitting several fly balls that would have been easily caught had she been playing a real game and even more foul balls, her brother stated in awe, “wow. you’re the bestest hitter. you should be a real baseball player.” to which her sister replied sarcastically, “yeah, she’d do real well with the running from base to base.”
she really should’ve known. she’ll never live down her pathetic running abilities. just because she’s not a little speed demon… goodness.
