Well it's that time of year again ;)..and I love it!! I know I complain a lot about not having time, or not being at home, or even being rushed. But looking past all that, I am soo grateful my kids get to be active in something they truly enjoy! I love that Ron and I get to be a part of this with them. We are so blessed with the friendships that baseball and softball have brought us and the time we get to spend as a family. This weekend seems like it just flew by, and it did. Everything was fun: Home Run Derby, Games, Cake Auction, even the Concession Stand duty. Blessed is just the best way for me to describe it!! These are a few of the pics from this weekend: hope you enjoy :)
2009 Shetland National All Star Team:
This is where Meg fell in love with tournament play. These All-Star tournaments changed how we spend our weekends, and sadly some of our friendships. We made memories and had tons of fun!!!
2010 10U Heart Breakers
We are loving our little team, and all the dynamics it has. These are our girls for the next 6 weeks, and we are really enjoying meeting there families, and getting to know each girl. They won their 1st game Friday night and did an amazing job!!
Yep, that is Meg playing 10U ball. Yep that is her at 2nd base, and Yep she is just 7 years old. We skipped 8U ball in league this year (she went straight from 6U Tee-ball, to girl pitch). She is doing amazing, and holding her own against the "big girls." I'm so proud of all our little "Select" babies playing with the "big girls." They are all pushing and challenging themselves to play way above all our expectations! Way to go babies!!
Trace 2010 Shetland Storm:
My little man, has a heart and head for ball ;)..I'm soo proud of him!! He was soo excited for his 1st game he could not sleep. Seriously, he came into my room at 12:00 a.m. (his bed time is 8:00) and said "Mom, if thez a runner on 1st and 2nd where is the play....my bag, it's me" He played 3rd base and loved it!! He did great, I'm so happy for him and proud of him!
Saturday, he was a little tired during his game. We had been at the fields all day, and the night before. He loved it, but was exhausted before his game even started. To keep himself awake while playing 1st base, Trace decided to play airplane. It was really cute to me, not so cute to his Dad and Coach Dennis. They still played amazing, and won there 2nd game ;)
