Chris and I were very very excited to hear that Lily wanted to do softball again this year!
This will be Lily's first year a real rec league (instead of One Goal), so there will be actual scores and strike outs and the whole bit! We are very excited! It will also be her first season playing in Bowling Green where her mom lives! We couldn't be more pleased to see her getting involved and playing a team sport!
We also couldn't be more pleased with her coach!! He is WONDERFUL! He encourages parent (and step-parent) help and involvement and is so great with the kids!
This past Saturday Lily had practice and neither Chris nor her mom could be there, so it was step parents on duty! Ava Grace and I thoroughly enjoyed her practice and being outside on such a pretty day!
(Ava Grace had to give big sis some pointers before she went up to bat!)
While Lily was in the outfield working on throwing and catching, Ava Grace got distracted with other fun things going on at the ballpark. Like grass...
... and fences to try to climb.
Lily did a crazy good job in practice! I was SO very proud of her!!!!
Of all the pitches the coach threw her way, she hit them ALL except for two!
She even got some practice running bases.
I can't wait to see what this softball season brings! I am looking forward to days outside in the sun watching our sweet girl play a game she loves!
After softball practice we loaded up, grabbed a quick lunch, and headed to the Nashville Zoo! You'll have to stay tuned for those pictures in my next post! It was a blast!
