Filer Fear Softball

Hannah has been playing 16U softball this summer. This weekend was her last tournament as she is going to be at church camp when the girls do their last tournament in Pocatello. She is pretty bummed about it. She will most likely play school softball next spring, but won't be playing ASA again as she will be too old. Here are some of the highlights of her summer season.

She hit a stand up triple today to end her season!

Hannah played first base and center field in school softball. In summer softball, she played right field, center field and catcher.

Here are the girls getting ready to go have some dinner. Pictured are Hannah, Erin, Shelby and Taylor. Taylor's dad was their coach.

Here are Hannah and Erin waiting for their dinner at Joe's Crab Shack in Boise.
The girls were leading this game at the Boise Tournament and let their lead go. Here are the girls chatting about what they need to do. They did eventually lose this game.

Here is Hannah batting. She hit a single at this at bat.
Here Hannah is catching for her friend Taylor. There were two Taylors on the team this year. Both are pitchers!

Here is another one of Hannah at Joe's Crab Shack.
Here are Hannah and Taylor in the dugout.

Have a great day.

Hayley's Photos!

Hannah has a wonderful friend. Her name is Hayley. Hayley is an extraordinary young lady. Her life story is amazing for such a young soul. She is my adopted daughter (she made me say that so I could share her photos!). All kidding aside, I love her and gladly accept her as one of my own. This is one talented young lady. Hayley is not only a great photographer in the making, she is a musician. You can find an article about her music here:

Hayley has been taking photographs for her portfolio for college scholarships and has agreed to let me share them here (as long as I included the adopted daughter disclaimer). I think her photos are amazing! The following photos are of my Hannah and her friend Keith. Keith is musician in his own right. He is lead singer for Amblett Died Trying You can also find them on Itunes; they have an EP for sale there. My favorite song is their acoustic version of "Let's Play Pretend". I also like "Not Meant for Weary Eyes"- a fairytale.

Hannah, Keith and My hubby Rick, were in our local Magic Valley Dilettantes production of "My Fair Lady" this winter. It awakened a monster machine that includes musicals, memorizing lyrics, vague quotes from musicals. For us non-actors, it keeps you on your toes.

These photographs were taken along the Snake River Canyon Rim. You will see the Perrine Bridge in the background. I can't believe the three of them could get that close to the canyon rim! I have feelings of vertigo just looking at the photos!

This is a self-portrait of Hayley (in the middle) with Keith and Hannah.

Thank you Hayley for sharing with me! Love you!

Hope your day is filled with happiness. Mine has been!

Have a great day,
