Our weekend

It was such a great weekend- it started bright and early Saturday morning before the sun ever came up.  We were on the road to our first fast pitch tournament of the year.  I think everyone was a little nervous to see how we would compete and to be very honest the first game was BAD!!  LOL The first team we played was an a second year team, all of the players had played in this division before and they had an amazing pitcher.  But finally our girls settled in for games 2-4 and did a much better job!  We were very proud that they ended up in 3rd place!!  We know that this year is going to be a year for learning and as long as we see improvement we will be good with that!  

While we were at the tournament KB got stung by a wasp!!  She was with some of our friends watching our 8U Crushers play and she sat on the wasp and it got her in her little thigh!!!  Bless her heart she was pitiful...it scared me to death since Kris is highly allergic, I had no idea how she would react to it.  Thankfully our good friend Brett, who is a paramedic was right there with us and he just took over!  She tells Brett now that she loves him and he is her best friend cause "him" fixed my boo boo!! We are so blessed by our Crusher family everyone was doing what they could to help us out!  Kara Brooke was alright after a little bit and then she went to sleep.

Sunday afternoon this was the view from my back patio!  Kaylee was determined to get some practice time in.  That is what I love about her love for the sport-she is by no means an amazing player but she does a great job, practices hard and wants to get better!  And in my mind after playing sports years and years myself that is what makes amazing players...heart and desire and that is something she definitely has and you just can't coach that!!!

And of course here is wild child, enjoying the beautiful day!!  I have started working on her 3rd birthday party...she is so excited about her party this year and has told me exactly what she wants her theme to be!    Ha!  More to come on that soon!!!

This weekend we are headed to Gallatin for our next softball tournament.  Hopefully our head coach will be there too.  He also coaches a middle school team and has been very busy with them but soon enough he will have all of his concentration on Kaylee's team!!
Looks like it will be another beautiful weekend-nothing better than sunshine, softball and spending time with friends and family!!
