Saying goodbye to the sidelines.

Yep, some of my best friends have been made through either coaching or being a sideline parent. Some have come and gone, some are still with me - but they all have left an impression (mostly good) on my life as a sports mom.

Two of my most favorite times were: DD’s last two Little League seasons when we had the same group of parents together who believed in our team and goals; the other was this past summer travel season bonding with the parents of the seniors who had graduated and were going on to play ball in college. Being able to share in their excitement and joy, as well as tears, was something I’ll never forget, and was privileged to be a part of.
