It's softball season again! Brooke and Jadyn have both signed up this year. Between the two of them, I feel like we live at the softball fields.
Luckily, Jadyn and Brooke both have great coaches that are fun and realize it's just a game. Last night was their first games. Jadyn was so nervous since it was her first time ever playing. She struck out the first time up to bat. But, after a great pep talk from me, she lost some nerves and made a hit the second time up to bat. I was so excited! I have been to many a baseball games never seeing any hits! Unfortunately, the girl that caught the ball had an amazing arm and got her out. In the end, they lost the game 6-2. BUT, she loved it! Brooke is in her 3rd year playing softball. She's now with the older girls ages 9-11. It's amazing how much bigger 11 year old girls are than 9 year olds. The girls on the team call her Little Brooke! This year is actually pretty exciting watching their games. They have the girls pitch, and are allowed to steal bases.
Brooke was up to bat twice. She was walked to first both times! Good eye Brooke! The first time up to bat, all the bases were loaded. SO with that one, she helped score a run! AND, she stole the 2nd and 3rd base both times. It was so much fun! Her team ended up losing 8-7. So disappointing. I thought for sure they had it. It was a great time though. Jeff has been working 18 hour days this week without a day off. Haven't seen much of him. We were all excited when he showed up in the middle of Brooke's game to join us. It was so nice being together.
