Little League Jamboree

Today was pretty much centered around Little League. This morning we walked down to the Mill Creek Sports Park to participate in the first Little League Jamboree along with 75 other teams! As you can imagine with kids, coaches and parents there was quite a crowd. All the teams were introduced and a short ceremony was held. Despite bringing our umbrellas, we were lucky and the rain held off. We weren't so lucky later in the day when Alyssa had her second softball game which was cut short after a total downpour in the 4th inning.

Alyssa is so proud of her softball uniform, though she was a little disappointed she didn't get pink or purple. Her team chose the name "Green Machine" though Alyssa was gunning for "The Emeralds". Funny enough, there was an older boys team with that name today at the Jamboree. On the drive home from the game, we started coming up with some pretty funny/cute name ideas including the Sugar Snap Peas, the Lilypads, the Evergreens, Poison Ivy, the Green Aliens, and a few more I can't think of right now.

Despite the heavy practicing and game schedule (3 times a week for 1.5-2 hours) Alyssa is enjoying softball and has a really great coach. Now if it would only get warmer and be nice and sunny for the games and practices it would be more enjoyable for us too.

Oh, that looks like such a fun day. Even with the rain, LOL.

You have a beautiful family. I remember well the days of LL Jamoborees when my kids were small. I hope you have a wonderful season and not too many rain-outs.
