Baseball/Softball spring season 2017 was underway! This year the league decided to offer softball and after playing with the boys for several seasons, and with Hannah's broken wrist last season, we decided it was time for her to move onto softball. And we were SO glad we did!! Jeremy decided to head coach, which was fun to watch. Since softball was new to the league, we only had two teams in our 8U division, we had lots of ups and downs playing some older teams in different leagues but overall, it was good for us and the girls came a LONG way! Especially Hannah, watching her was a blast!
One of the grandpa's of her teammates takes incredible pictures during the games, we are SO lucky! I have lots of fun video too!!
Opening day! We got lucky with some great families and coaches.
We were surprised with different uniforms than we picked but they turned out cute! I mean, I think Jeremy secretly liked the purple camo :)
Loved watching her in something new! Her favorite part might have been the cheers ;)
She started as one of the stronger pitchers, and then by the end, (not to brag too much ha ha) but she was by far the best pitcher and easily competed with 10 year olds. Mid season she changed her wind up and blew me away with her speed! She would have 3-6 strikeouts a game (only pitching 1 or 2 innings) and that girl can throw the ball HARD.
If she wasn't pitching she was usually at second, short or third, she has a strong arm.
One of the highlights of the season was in one of the last games she hit a grand slam!! She batted fourth, bases were loaded, and she smacked one hard into the outfield! I was screaming like a crazy lady we were so happy for her! I also promised her $10 if she ever hit a homerun and she came right out of the dug out and reminded me! She got the game ball that night!
This picture of her pitching is my favorite by far. I LOVE it. She looks so serious. She took it pretty serious too, she practiced every single day and would get bummed when she didn't get to pitch. If she sticks with it, she'll be amazing.
She also got a SECOND home run in one of the last games, I have video of it, but Ill spare you cause I was screaming like a crazy lady. She didn't forget another $10!
Owen had a great season too! He played on the Giants again, this time it was rookie baseball, coach pitch, he hit really good and was a pretty good first base man! Compared to some of the kids he took it pretty seriously!
Being a parent is HARD but watching your kids play sports whether they are good or bad, watching them practice, get better, and just enjoy it, is one of the BEST feelings ever.
He was always SO dirty. Games Friday and Saturdays meant I was soaking and washing pants often...like I said, he's always the dirtiest kid ha ha

October 20th, 2007, Jeremy and I began our married journey together! We have enjoyed every minute of married life together and look forward to the exciting adventures and challenges life holds for us. We are so thankful we have eachother and couldn't be happier!! In May 2009 we were BLESSED with the amazing news that we were expecting! And in September, we learned it was a GIRL! Hannah Elizabeth was born in January 2010 and has already changed our lives in so many ways. She is a beautiful, healthy little girl, but most importantly our MIRACLE! On May 8th, 2012 we welcomed the sweetest, most adorable little boy in the world- Owen Craig Adkins. We are so thankful for two beautiful, healthy children. They are our whole world! Jeremy and I live in Louisville, which I have always called home and now Jeremy kind of does too :) We have the BEST family anyone could ask for and awesome friends!! God is SO good.
