The girls had their first softball tournament this weekend. In the car on the way I finally asked them if the even knew what a tournament was. They didn’t. Oh the things you don’t really think about. Our first game started at 9:15, and we were there until about 4:00. It was a long day, but sunny and warm. It was the most perfect day to sit outside and watch softball. So much so that we all came home with sunburns because since it’s end of September, it didn’t even cross my mind to think about sunscreen. Oops.
The tournament was a bit of a shock to the team. It was the first time we played some really good teams, teams that could hit the ball into the outfield. Even though they lost all three games, the girls showed great sportsmanship and never complained, and they continued to have fun. The girls got some great hits and made some great plays. I was very proud!
This fall season has been such a great learning experience and definitely cemented softball as the sport of choice for the girls. We can’t wait for it to start up again next spring!
