emmy and her first season of t-ball

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME, TAKE ME OUT TO THE CROWD

(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.

You guys... We moved to UTAH!

After much prayer and thinking, we finally decided to start looking into other job opportunities for Tyson. I knew he would be amazing wherever he went and I have always told him I would follow him to the edge of the world, but it was time to be closer to family and closer to each other. We are hoping that this change will only grow our relationships around us and ours most importantly!

It's always bittersweet to move and for change. We miss our Arizonian family very much and can't wait to see them again. We have been blessed with good people and the wonderful church wherever we go and will be forever grateful for that.

Tyson has accepted a new job in Utah working as a Superintendent. He's the bomb.com and will do such an amazing job! I am so proud of him! He is hard working and it has truly paid off. We are now in the search of our next home while we sell and say goodbye to our Arizona home.

There is no way we would have made it to where we a…

Raise of hands for those who struggle with time in their daily routine? Time is such a hard task to manage and we can tend to neglect our personal needs and wants when we run out of that time. One thing that has always stayed constant in my routine is a heathy smile. After going through braces for just about two years, I was going to enjoy my smile more than ever. That definitely meant keeping them white and clean. 



I did great at keeping up with that and maintaining that smile until... MOTHERHOOD happened! That's when this momma struggled to manage time and especially her own personal time. My skin lost all hope, my smile had faded and I was definitely in need of a pick me up and a change in my routine! My kids happiness goes above and beyond mine any day, but to keep them happy I personally needed to feel good. That's where Smile Brilliantcomes in!





When Smile Brilliant reached out and asked if I wanted to try their product, I was stunned by their business plan. I don't kno…
