We had a good time in Clearwater, Fl. Nice weather minus rain. 86 and sunny with just the perfect amount of breeziness. I try not to complain, but 83 would have been better. 🙂
Still had to double up on the sunscreen ‘cause Mr. Sun is non forgiving. I must remember to spray my feet, for I now have a flip flop tan. (kinda like a farmers tan for slackers)
The girls won the first 3 games on Saturday. A long day for the girls too…they were at the field by nine am and did not leave until 8pm. We took a short break and went to Chic Fil A and strolled around Target stimulating the economy. Seems we do this in every town we go to. It may be my ‘secret’ goal to cross the threshold of every.single.target.in.the.USA!
come Sunday, not so good. We lost 2 in a row and were given our
driving walking papers. We came in 5th out of 30 teams. You can’t win them all. At least that is what ‘they’ keep telling me. I almost refuse to believe this lie.
I took this picture of the team warming up before their third game on Saturday. IT was cute how they formed a circle around this young magnolia tree. My comedienne Lindsay made a comment that it looked like they were ‘worshipping’ the tree…some sort of pre-softball game tree/stretching ritual. 🙂
Lo had a good time and I can only remember ONE injury incident. The child should have come with bubble wrap and a permanent helmet. While I am requesting that kind of stuff, she should have also come with some attached clips for all her stuff that she misplaces: cell phone, I pod etc…. I know God has a big job to do…but didn’t he see that part coming in my future????
Oh, and on the bragging front, Lo was named as one of the players for the “all conference” for this year…these players are chosen by the area coaches by the players stats. Quite the honor for her. She was also given an honorable mention in our local newspapers choice as their ‘all area’ team of athletes.
Even with these two recognitions, she still thinks she isn’t great. How to build confidence in a child who refuses to believe her parents and even other coaches??? Frustrating!
Today is our last day of school!!!!
Bring on the sleeping late and spending the waking hours in PJ’s!!! Well, maybe for a few days anyway….
