Ella practiced softball all weekend long. She has learned how to throw the ball against the roof to practice her pop flies. We decided to let her try softball again this year, after a hiatus last year. She moves up to the next division this year and we were very hesitant to put her back in the softball arena. Here is West TN, softball is HUGE. It is very competitive and when you commit to playing you have to give it your all. She begged and pleaded; and even went as far as to stop art lessons for a few months so that she could play. I have been so pleased with her commitment to practicing and her desire to become better. Practice starts this week, so life is really about to get hopping!
The most exciting thing we did this weekend was go to the Zoo. I think I was the most excited one in the truck. I couldn't wait to see Jack's face when he finally got to see the Elephants. It was everything I thought it would be. He was in awe at every turn. The girls also had a great time, although I think we wore sweet Lucy out! She was exhausted when we left.
