They Finally Won One!

My 2 oldest girls play softball - last year was their first year playing.  Last year, mom did not know that they could, if I wanted them to, play on the same team.  As a result, last year, mom nearly went crazy.  I was driving D-Man to baseball, the A-Girl and L-Girl to separate games and practices all while Rainman was either working on playing on the church softball team.

Needless to say, I was very happy when someone told us that the title 10U, for example, means that the players can be 10 years old and UNDER!!!

Both girls seems to have inherited their natural athletic abilities from their dad, so L-Girl is more than keeping up with the team even though she is one of the youngest on the team.

L-Girl joined what was A-Girl's team last year.  The Warriors went all of last season without winning even one game.  It was a frustrating, sad season.

Enter this year, win a little more experience under their belts and a few new faces....

They won!  A-Girl pitched the whole game and got the game ball from her coach.

We surprised them on the way home with a victory stop at....

Where they got something called Pop Rock Explosion.....

It matched their uniforms!  It was cotton candy flavored ice cream with pop rocks in it that exploded in your mouth!  Cool, huh?  Sorry about the blurry shot - I must have been too excited about my White Turtle Waffle Cone that was ready!!!

Ah, a winning feels good....for  me, I was hard coming up with all those encouraging, uplifting, peptalks last year!  I don't know if I have any good Mom speeches left in me!
