Wish you were here

Our daughter is playing on a traveling softball league this year. She has been playing rec ball for the past 2 years so we wanted to step it up this year and get more competitive. Last year her dad coached her team and they did awesome. This year she is on a traveling team that does lots of tournaments and she gets lots more play time and her dad is not here.

So bummed he is not able to be here and see her play and help coach her. She was used to his calm and positive coaching skills and now she gets a coach that yells a lot and says a lot of " great win but.....". The team has been improving greatly. It is wonderful to see them getting better on little things that need improving.

These past 2 weekends they played in the championship game for the tournaments. She plays 1st base and has turned out to be quite the hitter when she can get over her nerves. Her team won 2nd place both tournaments.  So wonderful considering how they played when we started.

He called during this last tournament and I was giving him some play by play info. It was great to let him know when it was happening what was going on. I take lots of pictures and videos but it just isn't the same.

Here is my daughters team with there medals.

Congratulations on your daughter's accomplishments! And I totally understand how you feel. My husband missed my son's entire baseball season, which was especially tough because it was his 1st baseball season (not t-ball). I tried to videotape but it's just not the same. I'm hoping he'll be home to help coach next year. I hate all the stuff our husbands miss.
