Happy Saturday!! The weather is nice here (minus it being hot) and we have lots of plans today. I hope everyone is going to be out enjoying this nice weather. We have a busy day with our niece’s softball game, our softball practice, and then back to the strip. It rain last weekend so the antique cars couldn’t make it out, so they are having it again this week. I think we are going to ride the strip a lil bit, but take chairs this time to sit and watch mostly.
Last night we had our “First” game of the season. We lost, we got our butt kicked!! Yep, our team needs work. We have a pretty great team, but they are going to have to want to be a TEAM. Some of them have to learn there are no “I” in team. Also, we have a player we have to talk to about being nice to our other team members. Kids can be so mean these days. I think we are going to practice today and then Tuesday. Our next game is next Friday….wish us luck.
Today, we are going out to another ball field to help my brother. He is our assistant coach where we play at, but his girls play somewhere else and he coaches their team. My husband helps him out and of course, I get to hang with my 2 year old nephew. Plus, a friend runs ball out there and we told him we would help him anyway we can when he needs it.
I feel like now days we live and breathe softball. My husband wanted to coach and I said okay, if that is what you want to do go for it and then his mom sponsored us. I didn’t realize how much I would be involved in it. I am the one that keeps everything organized, contact parents about games and practices, plus standing in the dug out with them. I am also in charge of the batter line up making sure we have the correct batter going up when it is their turn. I remember telling my husband last year that, if he wanted Zander our son to play softball it was his thing. I did karate with him, I did my time, lol….but I guess it didn’t stick this year. I love being able to support my husband in wanting to coach and supporting my son playing sports. Not a lot of parents get to do that. Plus, I use to be a preschool teacher and I love working with kids (that is why my house is always full of kids), it gives me a chance to do something I love…minus they are older kids.
