Our Softball Player


This year, Ellie decided she wanted to play softball. However, to my dismay, she also wanted to quit dance. I told her that she could take a year off of dance and see if she really likes softball. Softball takes up A LOT of time. So far she is enjoying it. I think it helps to have your dad as your coach. Although Jake has no experience with softball, the league was short a coach and informed us that if a parent didn't step up as coach, they would have to disband the team. Well, of coarse we wanted Ellie to be able to play, so Jake volunteered. It's been a learning experience for all of us. The Gladstone Bulldogs play their 3rd game tonight. They are undefeated so far! GO BULLDOGS!

p.s. I think I have her convinced that she needs to dance again next year :)

I had such fangs and a mullet. I thought I looked SO awesome though! I wish I still had that self confidence that I did when I was 11!

That is so fun. I know Alycia loved it when our dad coach her in softball. And were we on a softball team together, and were they called bulldogs too or am I thinking middle school. Oh fun times. Go Ellie!!

SO cute! She looks so sure of herself! I'm so proud of her that she has that confidence! And I dunno... isn't dancing supposed to be for the kids who are too special for sports? Like me? Although sometimes those people go to Dance Team Tryouts and walk out mid audition crying... so I guess maybe they aren't even special enough for that?
