If you follow along with me on any social media you already know that last Saturday was Anika’s last softball game of the season. We made it to the final round of tournaments and ended up in second place and the team all received medals to commend them for all of their hard work and determination. It turned out there was only four middle school softball teams, so theoretically coming in second place shouldn’t have been that hard – but several girls on our team (including Anika) had never played before, and in middle school everything starts getting competitive, so our team had a bunch of catching up to do. From my observation we started out with the least experience, needed the most improvement, and managed to achieve that. This last week during tournaments the girls literally spent 2-3 hours every night practicing – and obviously it paid off for us. Saturday night the whole team had a sleepover at one of their houses, and they all celebrated their accomplishment and the end of the season! Last night after Anika came home, I decided to have a mini Backyard Bash for her with a couple special goodies to celebrate her achievement.
