Kaylee, being the middle child and more naturally quiet than the others, doesn’t always get her due. Not that she wants me discussing her publicly (shhh!), but it’s safe to share the following information: Kaylee had her first hit as part of Arcata High’s varsity softball team. A screaming, rock-solid triple with 2 RBI. On two strikes and two outs. “Yeah! That’s our freshman!” her team yelled. “Yeah, that’s my kid!” I grinned as high-fives came my way. (Not that I’ve done much more than show up at her games. Bobby’s helped with the skills, and she’s a conscientious person and player all on her own – but I still get to share in the moment!) What a great kid. I sure love her.
