Elena's first season of softball is in the books! I am so proud of her, she got better and better over the season and truly enjoyed it. I think she also loved that Mommy was out on the field helping with the team! ;) (Warning - photo overload coming your way as I wrap an entire season into one post!)
The dugout was pretty much social time! Ha!
Her BFF Zeplynn was on the team to which she loved (strategic move to help her like softball? Maybe!) And they loved having matching hairstyles for the game. Seriously. She begged me to text Z's mom to make sure they would have the same hair! Yeesh!
But it did help me learn to master the double French braid! I was really proud of myself too!
After the first inning pretty much every girl came up and asked me when they would have snacks and what they were having! Ha ha ha.
I'm so glad she not only liked softball but really wanted to practice and get better at it!!
Check out that form - ready for kid-pitch!! :)
She also had a huge fan in little brother! He wanted to get on that field and play so bad!
Two more huge fans!! (They loved having a reason to be out at the ball diamonds again - we spent many, many nights and weekends here when I played)
Elena just happened to get to play pitcher that night!! Yay!!! She did so great - seriously like 10 grounders came to her, and she stopped every single one. Proud Mommy for sure!!
She even got her first "real" out! Go Elena Go!
and I just happened to get it on video with my phone. (A perk to being on the field!) Please ignore my loud yelling - I was just a tad excited! :)
Love that intensity!!!
On her last game they played their little hearts out and were beyond thrilled to get trophys!!! So fun!
I know I already said this but I was so, so proud of Elena this season!! Looking forward to many more! Great job baby girl!!
