emmy and her first season of t-ball


(team picture)

Little miss Emmy had her first season of t-ball the last few months and it was interesting. I was so excited to get her signed up. I grew up playing softball and of course I would love for my daughter to love it the way I did. I debated on whether it was too soon to put her in or not. I did not want her to hate it or resent it. She is so young and impressionable but very stubborn. Well I could't resist so we signed her up. 

Watching a bunch of three and four year olds playing t-ball was hilarious! Some knew the sport really well, others were chasing butterflies in the outfield. Emmy did decent. She loved getting dressed in her uniform and hat, but as soon as we got to the park it was like a switch flipped. She wouldn't play out in the field without mom right by her side. When she was up to bat, the coach couldn't help her, it had to be me. As much as this was frustrating because I just wanted to watch her play, it was the perfect opportunity for me to teach her. So I took each moment in the field and at bat with her to teach her as much as I could. By her last 2 games Emmy was going up to bat by herself, hitting the ball instead of bunting it off the tee, and somewhat playing in the field by herself. (There were times I had to go in) I am so proud of her though. It made my mommy heart happy to see her on the days where she was having fun and enjoying it. It just took a little more practice at home for her to understand to run the bases the right direction and to not chase the ball after she hits it! 

Best moment was when I was out in the field with her and the ball was hit between her and another girl and that other girl got the ball first. Emmy turns to me while throwing her hands at the ground saying, "Damnit that girl!" I was dying as were all the other parents out in the field with their kids. I had to turn around and breathe through it and then ask her what the problem was. She was upset because she wanted the ball. I told her to always want the ball and to go get the next one hit to her. (we talked about the swearing as well.) Man I love that little girl.

Emmy's First Dance Recital - 2018

Emmy had such a fun time doing dance and tumbling this year! Thank you to her amazing teachers and awesome aunt & great grandma that let her take lessons at their dance studio! Emmy learned so much during the season. At the end of her performance she told me she had so much fun, but was very tired! the next day she told me she would like to keep doing tumbling in the summer, but not dance! I think her mind changes on the regular though! I love this little girl! She was an absolute hoot to watch; Easily distracted and full of her own moves that she added in! Good job Emmy girl, we are so proud of you sis! Love you!

Bear Lake with the Cox's 2018

For Tyson's side of the family get together this year we went to Bear Lake! We love Bear Lake and it was so much fun! Day one we spent the entire day at the lake. We rode wave runners (some of us rode too close to others and got a ticket 🤣), we floated, we ate way too much food, took naps, swam like mermaids and had all sorts of fun! One thing we did not do collectively as a group was wear sunscreen often enough! Everyone was burnt on some part of their body!
