My middle child and my mini me, Shelby Wray (Top row, second player from left) plays on a few softball teams, but her year-round competitive fastpitch team, The Delaware Diamonds 12U, just won the State Championships for 2009 this weekend! It was tough and intense, but they beat the 2008 State Champions, The Swoop, in not only one, but two international tie breaker innings! The final score was 6-5 over The Swoop. Both teams played well and should be very proud of their efforts! Next is a local tournament in Dover, De in a couple of weeks, then we're off to Carey, NC for the National World Series...go Diamonds!
I watch her while she plays and I can't believe how fast she's grown up. I still see my little red-head running around driving me crazy. She has a strong will and is stubborn just like me, but I think that's what I love most about her. She's definitely an individual and a leader...not a follower. I scrapbooked a page of her the other day. It was just a random picutre my husband took of her while she was eating spaghetti. She was 12 months old and we were stationed in the Azores at the time (islands off of Portugal). Were did the time go? I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Your children growing up is bitter-sweet to say the least.
