The day Chloe hit the home run

there i was about 45 min ago standing on second base watching chloe take a quick practice swing before she stood in the batters box. It was our championship softball game and we had to beat this team twice to win the championship. we had already won the first game and it was the bottom on the 6th inning and the score was close. chloe stepped in the batters box, the pitcher pitched the ball and BAM!!!!! its going....going...GONE!!! chloe hit it a two run home run over the left fielder! i am so proud of her!

p.s. we won the game and we are the champions...i'm pretty sure i heard queen playing off the distance

p.p.s. after the home run the ump said to me "you know she is a heck of a lot better than you." and i said "are you kidding me? she is soooo much better than me."  then he said "i think that deserves flowers tomorrow." i said "how 'bout a house??" he said "that'll do."

I have always wished that I was athletic. I don't think I could hit a home run if you paid me! I'm impressed, Chloe. The cutest part is how proud Sean is of you!

By the way, your purse diaper was hilarious. I'm getting caught up on older posts and seriously... the photo, the description... you are so funny!
