Last night was the end of Alex’s softball career. The game was brilliant. Oh, and so was she. I know that it’s brag mom-speak, but this moment is something she has been working towards for years. She had the game of her career…at the right moment, with the right girls. It was incredible, for all of us. Please forgive me if I share this article (I can bring you coffee and a muffin while you read it, if you like).
After the last game, the girls went back to the center of the field to huddle and sing the song they start every game with (a song none of us understand or know, but it’s their way, and somehow it demonstrates how, well, just how they are).
And then, in celebration (I hope of themselves), they threw dirt into the air.
Well played girls, well played.
