Play Ball!...

High school softball season is here. My granddaughter plays three sports each year, soccer, basketball and softball. So as you can guess, I'm watching as many games as I can! As she's just finishing ninth grade I am looking forward to three more years of games. This is their first home game. She got two hits. The first hit was a long one and unfortunately was caught by the center fielder. The second hit got her on base. However the inning finished before she could get to home plate.
Here she is in right field shouting encouragement to her friend who is pitching...

Our field is in a nice setting behind the school,... tall pines flank two sides...

The girls fought hard but lost...

OK,... maybe we'll win next week, right? I know I'll be there to cheer them on!

we have traveled quite a bit so far this baseball season and we happened to be playing in North Creek at Johnsburg School the other night. I could not help but think that most of the schools we have been to (and our own) have absolutely beautiful settings to play. In Johnsburg we were surrounded by beautiful mountains. We are much luckier than the city people having cars and main highways on each side of the field. Enjoy the games! I know they feed my spirit :)

What a lovely place for a ball game! There is a similar field in the backyard of an old friend I knew in Washington State. Amost identical. Made me homesick. Gorgeous photos!

What a lovely spot for a softball field. I also miss those days with our two sons. Time goes by much to fast.

Spring is just the most glorious time of year for all things kids and teen! As much as I get crazy busy, I do love it when the activities ramp up. What a gorgeous field! Sorry I haven't been able to check in as much with getting ready for the move!

How wonderful to see your granddaughter play! Softball was always one of my favorite sports - I was playing in a co-ed league up until 5 years ago. Now I'm wondering if there's a league I can join for the over 40 crowd!

It's nice of you to go watch her games. That field reminds me of where our church team used to play many years ago. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
