I love that Abby loves softball!
I don't always love softball season, only because of the extreme weather. Maybe extreme is a harsh word. The thing is, softball starts when it is cold outside, and ends when it is blazing hot. Thankfully, this year was very mild and enjoyable. I, actually, looked forward to going to Abby's games. I love watching her play. (Selfishly, I also love the excuse of sitting for an hour and a half!)
This is where we have spent a lot of our summer evenings.
I love to watch my girl play! This girl can hit the ball!
In the past, I have also dreaded taking Luke to Abby's softball games. He would be all over the place and not very cooperative. This year, it has been great! Luke really looks forward to going to Abby's games. He asks almost every morning if Abby has a game that night. He is often disappointed when I say, "no".
My social little guy always finds a friend or group of friends to play with and is sad when the game is over and we have to leave.
Abby's team had a great season! They won 7 games and only lost 2! They were a great group of girls and awesome coaches!
Of course, they are silly girls!
Abby wasn't very happy with me at this point. I told her coach that it was her birthday and the team sang happy birthday to her. (: (We also found out that #8's, who became one of Abby's very good friends, birthday was the same week!)
Like I said in an earlier post, we decided that since Abby was scheduled to take snacks so close to her birthday, that we would make them birthday treats. Abby requested softball cupcakes. Perfect! I think they turned out pretty cute. The girls were all super impressed!
That's my girl! Isn't she adorable?! I am so proud of her!
Abby's rec games are over, but school softball is only just beginning!
