Wow, it's sooo easy to get behind and feel overwhelmed ;( Lately we are busy playing....you guessed it BALL, LOL. Everyday we are a ball field somewhere. Between league, select, and fall ball practices we are getting ball park tans and hating concession stand foods, LOL. Don't take me wrong I'm not complaining, the kids totally love it, it just gets tiring running from practice to practice and game to game with a few tournaments mixed in there too.
Meg is currently playing with TX Full Count...she has recently told us she isn't haven't as much fun anymore (heartbreaking, I KNOW). I honestly think it's because of some of the personalities on the team, because she doesn't want to quit she just wants on a different team without this one girl. Ron and I are currently praying and waiting for God's guidance in handling this situation. Finally it seems like this little team we started 3 years ago (AKA Ball Hawgz) is getting a break. We are winning some tournaments, playing good, and now Meg isn't happy, it's hard to explain to her that there will always be difficult personalities and you just have to deal with them. The easy solutions would be to just throw them off the team, but it just isn't that easy. I know there is a plan and somehow this will work out. In the meantime, we will continue playing and praying.
Tracer is playing now too. He is currently playing League at TCBA on the Pinto Orioles and practicing with team Impact, a select 9U team. He LOVES team Impact, but considering he is only 7 it might not be the best option for him. He does excel on the League team and will more than likely make the All Star team. He just really likes playing with the older boys and being challenged. He is very excited that there will soon be a 7U Impact team which he will get to try out for and hopefully play with in the Fall. He is soo excited not to just have a "short" baseball season and that he will get to play more tournaments like Meg does.
I just pray that both kids are learning lots of life lessons. Meg has always had trouble with the difficult personalities she faces in class and at school. As her mother it isn't easy!! I find myself really wanting to line these little girls out, but I can't. I know I have to let her handle it, she will grow with this, and hopefully learn a lesson (or that's what I tell myself anyway). Hopefully, Trace will learn that you have to work for things and have patience they will happen. Everything has came sooo easy for him, he tries for something and pretty well succeeds. I don't want him to grow up thinking that life is soo easy. Anyway, these are just a few of the lessons I hope they learn today. I'm sure next week, practice, game, etc... there will be another lessons they will get to learn.
Sparkle and Shine!
