Softball Tournament

So, here is the reason it took me so long to post pictures from Easter. Monday morning we had to be at the airport at 5:45 to fly to Burbank, CA for a softball tournament. Then we rented a couple of passenger vans and drove the team a few hours north to Santa Maria for a 3-day tournament. The team did pretty well. We went 3-2 (that's 3 wins and 2 losses). It was COLD there! I think I wore everything I packed. At the same time!! The winds were ridiculous! 35-45 mile/hour wind gusts. CRAZY COLD! One of the mom's there took a picture of me out at first and I looked like an Eskimo. I think the wind froze my brain too, because I didn't take any pictures until after our last game.We totally should have had Amanda kneel down so you could see Coach Mullin behind her. LOL

These kids are the reason that this is what I have been doing every afternoon, for 3½ months out of the year, for the past 10 years. ♥ It!

This looks like such fun. I hope those kids appreciate having someone like you coaching them . . . and the parents appreciate having a good mentor like you teaching their daughters! It's pretty important in the long range scheme of life, boy do I sound old or what?
