Scout tells this story in retrospect so no she does not think her dad was feeble. As the novel progresses, Scout gains more and more respect for Atticus as a person and as a father.

This is her view as a child. Atticus seemed feeble because he didn't play football or do a physical job. He also wore eyeglasses.
