Here is her cute USA pic. While I am in the bragging mood... my other sisters, the twins, Adie and Haley were SO STELLAR as well. They played PROFESSIONAL softball for the Chicago Bandits! I am so proud of them and happy that I got to go to a few of the games in between having my girls.
Here are their pics off the Chicago Bandits website.... too bad they switched their names! No one can tell them apart.... I can. I have ALWAYS been able to tell them apart. Ever since I was little I was always the expert on my sisters. I would correct everyone!
So I think I am done bragging about my sisters.... we are a very sporty family. My dad had four daughters (Another Haus of Girls) and being a professional baseball player in his past he helped guide us into the athletic side of life. (Definitely no cheerleading allowed!) I am so thankful for that. Sports, in my opinion, influences girls in so many ways. From self-esteem, learning to never give up and realizing what it takes to be part of a TEAM. I hope my three girls play sports and succeed in all they do just like me and my sisters did.
After we watched Aunt Maggie hit a homer today on tv Mia started running around going crazy! She started pretend swinging a bat and said to me, "Mommy, I am going to be on tv one day just like Maggie and hit the ball over the fence SUPER far!"
I hope I get to see her hit a homerun someday!
