My Li'l Slugger

Strike was a team captain in the all star game last night. Her team lost but it was a great game! Really fun to watch. She's never worked so hard in her life at anything as she has at pitching. In the beginning she lacked coordination but she put in countless hours during the off seasons & endured lots of sore/iced shoulders bc she wanted to be good - and it paid off! :) I'm so proud of her.

I love this pic. Strike is in the the background
at 3rd base & one of her best friends is at bat. I think
it's neat how the catcher's glove & the bat frame her face.

Since I tend to be a softy when it comes to playing hardball (letting my kids fail now & then), I'm so grateful that all our kids enjoy sports. Hard work ethic & hard life lessons (the ones learned best from failure, mistakes & hard work) come so naturally when our kids are competing.

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings,
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character; and character, hope.

What a great lesson for them (and for the rest of us, too!)
