    We leave for the world series this weekend. We're playing SEA in Pigeon Forge. I'm pretty excited. This is our first world series with a team we plan to stay with next year. Our first one in 8U, we were picking up and were never on the team. Last year the WS was our last event with that team. It was a fairly miserable situation. This year, we have a mostly happy team with little drama. I'm guessing we retain 60%+ of our players for fall (I'm rounding down, I really think 80% is more like it but I know not to count chickens in TB too). We've had a good year, moving to an org with a name in the fall, everyone's in a pretty good mood about softball. I think it's going to be the most fun we've had yet. Also, WAY cooler (temp wise) than PCB which we've done the past 2 years. We've got both our pool games Monday then bracket I believe starts Wed.

    DD is in Atlanta playing in the Legacy while we are at home until tomorrow. When we missed out on our ASA berth last weekend which wrapped up her teams summer we were asked to finish out the year with another team. She was playing with a solid team but I can attest to what an organization name does for you. Through all the emails she had sent and the other legwork we had maybe 4 or 5 coaches come out for our other three showcases. Yesterday she played in front of a ton of top schools during both games and had 2 SEC schools and another mid major ask the coach for her info since she was not on the roster they turned in.

    I think she will have some decisions to make going into the fall about who she will be playing with.

    Second to last TB tourney ever for my daughter before college. Unfortunate that it is being held at the complex with the worst fields in the Chicagoland area, but at least her final tournament next weekend is at a complex with good fields.

    We were doing OK but are losing all our pitchers for one reason or another.

    See how tonight goes, run ruled last night. Think they are still scoring, we need a score board with 3 digits.

    Quiet weekend for us. DD is running a 5K with my sister tomorrow, and my boy is doing a 1 mile run with my nieces. Plan on mowing the grass sometime this weekend. Sunday DD leaves for Branson for the FASA world series, but we can't get down there until Wednesday night.

    DD left her team of 4 years last night and joined her dream team. Tryouts are so stressful. Glad they are over for another year.
    Hopefully headed to the mountains tomorrow for some much needed R&R.

    No softball this weekend. We are enjoying visiting friends in North Carolina. No BBQ yet.

    DD's team is off this weekend. DD umpired a tourney all day today and will be doing the same tomorrow. DH is working an overtime, DS is playing Ultimate Frisbee, maybe I will clean the house and get caught up on laundry. Or maybe not...
    Play for the name on the front of the jersey and they will remember the name on the back.
