Hello Softball fans!!  Did you miss my posts yet? 😉

Ha..just kidding.  I know I have a long way to go before you will actually miss seeing my posts.  I have to work on my writing skills.  Language was never my best subject.  I gravitated to STEM classes.  I could really use some grammar and spelling classes though.

How is your summer going?  I haven’t disappeared from the planet yet.  Our family went on a much-needed vacation.  You know the kind that makes you put everything on hold and enjoy nature.  Yes!  We visited the New England area in the east coast as we have extended family over there.  We went on several hikes and enjoyed nature in its best and worst (bug bites) form.

We were pushed back into reality this weekend.  We are back to the crazy life here in Silicon Valley and had a 12 U tournament in Antioch and a 10 U tournament in Concord. These two cities are in the East Bay and about 15 mins from each other but had very different fields.  I will be writing more park reviews on these two parks soon.

We had to be there at 7 am this morning and guess what? 7 am again tomorrow.  That means have to get up at 4:30 am again tomorrow. We are all still jet lagged.  But such is the summer softball life.  The kids did their best but still lost a few games!

Every time we come back from a tournament, I ask my kids “So, do you still enjoy playing softball?” and so far, the answer has always been “Yes”.  So along as the answer is yes, we will be waking up early and doing the crazy drive.  I hope your summer is going well and the kids are having fun playing.  Take care and thanks for reading.

Would love to hear from you :-)
