|Lily, Amara, and their friend, Madi|
Amara and Lily were in different leagues. Amara was in a coach pitch league, and Lily was in a full-on fast pitch league (I didn't know that I had signed her up for that. She's never even played before, and I threw her into the "big leagues.").
She was the fastest runner on her team. I called her, "Miss Lightning Legs!" And she was a good hitter (and her coach was a good pitcher!)
Lily had 3 coaches that really worked with their team before each game to teach them some basics. Lily got the nickname, "Golden Glove," and played 3rd, shortstop, and left field.
My mom made it to every game she could, and both the girls loved it when she would get out there and give them pointers on how to play the game.
I'm glad we survived. Through it all, there were lots of good memories made and time spent together as a family, something I value most heavily.
