As a child, I was never given the opportunity to play sports. So naturally as a mom I put my kids in them. Hoping to keep them focused and motivated, and hoping to just make them happy! I mean really, who wants three unhappy daughters! I put them in tee-ball which soon evolved into softball, and it wasn’t just regular softball it was travel ball! Its a very aggressive and demanding sport… Sheesh! The travel, the equip, the practice, uniforms, coaches, yelling audience, unhappy blues, its a craze! And yet in the midst of the madness, I’m in love with the idea of maybe today my daughter is just going to shine and be that great player I know she can be! As my younger two start their 2nd year of softball watching them grow in to the sport has been AMAZING! But also expensive and stressful! It’s worth it all because they are my world!
