Summer Fun!

 Dear Friends, I can't tell you how great it was to spend a weekend having some summer fun with my family!
My dh and our youngest are just finishing up their summer of softball games and they finished in glory!
 Our team finished first in the league and first in tourneys, now that is the way it should be! Saturday was the championship game and  since we had not lost all we had to do was beat the other team once and we would be the champs, so with a 14-7 win, it was all over!
My sweet daughter and my handsome hubby, the coach for the last 11 years!

Teammates and close friends since they were 8 years old!
Our daughter plays first base and this is the pitcher from the team that came in 2nd. They are such good friends and spend their time joking around together and today was not different! We call her our daughter!

We had a day filled with games and a picnic, beautiful weather and laughs. The only tears for the day was when my hubby told the girls that this was his last year of coaching. He cried, they cried, the parents cried too! Bittersweet!

On another note, I visited my Mom today at her home and she was all smiles and having a great day! She was having company and was done with her bath. We are trying a new doctor and she is now taking even more vitamins and drinking lots of water. Of course other things too but we are so blessed because today she was not on any pain medication...not even Advil....PTL! What a great day she was having...and I was too!

So today I am home with my family, and there is much to do but first I am going to spend some time in prayer, then spend some time with my dh and then, well, maybe something creative for a change!
Blessing to each of you and please continue to pray for my Mother!

Many congrats to your daughter!!! You must be very proud of her.
It is a great thing that her dad is so implied in her life, I think it makes him a great, real father.
