the old ballgame

it's the smell of brick dust in the air...
softball!!!
paige finished up her school ball season this last weekend...and she did awesome.
she laid down the perfect bunt...i wish you could see how close the 3rd baseman really was to her...and she totally beat the throw!!!
killer catches and amazing throws from the outfield...
and great leadership on and off the field...
and then this major league slide at home! awesome!

now, there's a whole lot going on behind the diamond too...
friends and games...
nana and her baby sofie...playing between innings
and in the end, there's utter exhaustion from a full day of sunshine, playing and softball...on everyone's part.
{check out the filthy feet...yuck}

and the girlies are absolutely filthy, which, in my book, is a sign of a good day!
{can you see her face behind all that dirt??}
and the utter admiration of the little sisters of paige and the team in the dugout...
so sweet!
so, a happy end of one softball season and a great new beginning of travel ball!
head to angie's for more wordful wednesday's!

Looks like the whole family has a great time - that's saying a lot. It's so hard to keep the little ones entertained at sporting events. Kudos to you.

Great Action shots mom!! From one who knows!!! Those fences sure are a hinderance!! i got good shots of jadon last night, but they were on a practice field with very little fence!! Great Job Paige! Let me know if their travel team ever heads this way!

I'm partial to those softball pics...I played YEARS.....laid down a few perfect bunts myself...but I was a pitcher, I guess I liked being in the center of it all! lol!!

What a better sign of a GOOD day...filth!!

FABULOUS life!

You are a way better sports mom than I am. I am not loving trying to watch the game AND the little ones running all over the place. I can only seem to enjoy one or the other.
