Proud "Mama" moment

I am so proud of my children. Just on an average they do things that make me proud to be a mom. Now, don't get me wrong... they also do things that make me want to scream profanity out of my car window, but I could never imagine my life without them.

Ryann had her softball evaluations this past Saturday and she ROCKED! This will be her 3rd season playing for NTGSL, and she's really coming into her own. During the evals she was: thrown 3 pop flies (she caught all 3); hit 3 ground balls (she fielded all 3); given 3 balls to throw from shortstop to 1st base (perfect throws) and she hit 3 out of the 5 balls the pitching machine shot to her. The damn machine wasn't working good and had to be adjusted to speed up the pitches.

Mommy just sat in the dugout and let her baby do her "thang"... she even knew she kicked butt. That's my girl!

LOVES IT!! It's times like this when they make you super, overwhelmingly proud that get you through the times when they're mouthy teenagers :)
