On Monday night, Paige and Alex both had a ballgame at 7:30. Michael, Carver and I went to watch most of Paige's game and then headed over to watch the end of Alex's game. They both had a pretty exciting night.
Paige plays in center field and caught a fly ball that was hit to her. She did so good. Paige was so embarrassed by all the yelling we were doing that, after she caught the ball, she started crying. Another little girl on her team came over and gave her a big hug. The combination of catching the ball, us yelling "way to go Paige", and the little girl coming over to give her a hug was just too much for her. I think she should really be my child! :-) She has that sensitive crying gene. Maybe her dad has it too but... he is too much of a man to show it!?!?! We were all so proud! This is her first year playing softball so catching that ball was a pretty big deal.
This picture of her is from a previous game. Michael did a good job capturing the moment so I wanted to share. This is Paige sliding into home plate.
I usually take most of the pictures but Michael is our official sports photographer! :-)
This is a picture of Alex pitching! Alex is usually playing catcher or is in the outfield but on Monday night, he got the chance to pitch for a couple of innings. Alex did really good! Several people (including one of the umpires) were bragging on him and how well he did his first time on the mound. My brother, Mike (Alex's dad), was a great pitcher in high school so I know he was proud! We all were!
