The Big Time



This old farmhouse was empty this past weekend.  The girls loaded up and spent some ultra-hot days in Nashville.  The young girl played in the United Southern Girls Fastpitch World Series and this girl spectated, and supplied food/drink/transportation.  Oh, and I cheered and nervously paced the sidelines while the younger girl pitched.  

They ended up winning the whole thing.  
It was awesome.  

The girl of the house is on the right hand side, with the huge smile.  

Meanwhile, the boys of the house were in Illinois at the National Trap Shooting Competition.  Secret Agent Farmer Man, (who is also the trap shooting coach),  kept me updated through texts and phone calls.  With two days of shooting, the results didn't come in until Saturday night.  

They ended up winning the whole thing.  
National, yes National Champions in the open division.  
It was awesome.

The girl has a few years of softball ahead of her, but this was the last competition for the boy at this stage.  He went out in a huge way.  

It was a nerve-wracking weekend, but we are so thankful.  

Thankful for two kids who work hard, try their best, and compete in the finest way.

  21. Well, super congratulations to the two champions and their proud parents. My daughter was an elite athlete in high school, and I concur with the quote that emphasizes hard work and never being satisfied. Sport and competition are wonderful preparation for life, and it appears that you are raising two kids who will become successful adults. (And, I also know that having a first rate pitcher is key to a softball team's success, so your daughter gets an extra bit of personal congratulations along with the team congratulations!)
