Today, during your game, you didn't pitch well. You had a few strikes and struck out 5 batters over 2.5 innings. But you walked. A lot. And gave up 18 runs. But you kept going. Never gave up. Never got upset or showed any emotion. You just kept throwing. For the first time, the coach pulled you. I honestly didn't think you realized what that meant, and you were definitely tired. After the post game huddle, you walked over to me and immediately tears started flowing and you buried your face in my stomach. "I pitched bad. I threw too many balls". Somehow, you know and you were disappointed in yourself. But I was still so proud. Proud that you kept it together. Proud that you kept your head in the game and didn't get upset until the game was done. Proud that you just kept throwing.
First softball game. She had the most fun. Got to pitch for the very first time. And had 2 hits! So excited for this season.
I will be the first to admit that I would have never have guessed this girl would love softball so much. Nor would I have imagined that she would be good. I thought she was meant for dance and entertainment. But she picked up pitching overnight and I am impressed at her potential. And, over and over, "I love softball" comes out of her mouth. Daddy is so happy.
Nobody in the world has ever loved birthdays as much as this girl. Turning 8 was no different. We counted down the days. She loved being surrounded by family and friends. And of course, she loves presents. This year, we got her softball gear - a batbag, bat and helmet. She wanted all things Justice and had the best birthday party making tye dye shirts with her best friends.
Baseball camp kicked off Summer for these 2. Bella's first time, and she loved it!!! As always, Cam had so much fun.
Recital week. It was a busy week, but we made it. She was super excited but just as nervous. But you would never know it; she did so well! And having all of her cousins there to cheer for her makes it all worth it.
This was her favorite costume. She loved Lyrical class. But, we've decided to take a break from dance next year and try some other things, like softball or volleyball. I'm sad because I love to watch her dance. But I'm also excited to see her try new things. Stay tuned.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
