Playoffs Update

Well one team was a winner (Elisha's) and one team was a non-winner (Bethany's). Both teams played hard and so did both of my kids. To get into the playoff spirit, we used colored hair spray in team colors, although you can't really tell in the picture that Bethany's braids are pink (they were supposed to red, but I couldn't find our red, so we used pink and white).

Yes, that is a mohawk Elisha is sporting. That was also a "playoffs thing."

Bethany got a hit every time up to bat, was paying attention for the most part at catcher and got to run home every time on base.

Elisha backed up both second base and first base, getting the ball in the field and helping to stop the runner from going home. He also got a hit tonight, even though he got out at first. This isn't the greatest picture, but I kind of thought it was an interesting behind shot after a hit.

I couldn't resist posting this great picture of the kids and their friend Jamie (Hope you don't mind Becca). He's one of Bethany's classmates and he and his mom came out tonight just to watch the kids play.

Love the colored hair! Too funny. So how is Bethany taking it that her brother's team was in the play off and her's wasn't? I'm just curious how she handled that. Sounds like they both are having a blast with this sport!

Bethany's team did make playoffs too, but unfortunately were eliminated in two games.

Yes, they both are having fun, but I do think Bethany is okay with her season being over. She does keep telling me that she will play fall ball with the boys though. We'll see.
