Cooper Softball

I have to blog Senior Day photos.  Photos of the Senior Lady Pirate, Lillie and Alex.  They played their last game last night as a Lady Pirate.  (regular season, that is.)  And I've gotten to watch them play this season that Kalyn has played.  I love to watch Lillie stretch out on first to grab those balls!  She seems 10 times BIGGER than she really is!  LOL  Here she is below with her mom and dad.  

Alex bats pigeon toed, if that's what you call it.  Too cute!  And I have a shot of that somewhere.  She had an awesome double play in last night's game.  WAY TO GO, MISS DERR!!!!  I don't have a shot of that.  I didn't shoot last night, but more on that later.  Alex will play softball next year in college and here she is with her mom and dad.  

But today?  Today I wanna talk about Boo.  The following shots are of her pitching.  And Boo, I promise I will get better at photographing softball soon.  It's just so dang hard when the dust is blowing in my lip gloss.  I think I prefer the indoor sports.  LOL  For shooting anyway.  But I do LOVE watching Boo pitch.  I have since I watched her pitch back in 6th grade.  

When you meet Boo she wiggles and bounces with energy and excitement and she's totally WHACKED out funny and just so dang charming and silly.  So when you watch her pitch, it's a stark contrast to the Boo off the field.  The only spot in the world I've seen her calm is inside that white circle of chalk we call the pitching mound.   And to her, I'm sure she's NOT calm.   She's probably turning flip flops in her tummy and just an awary of emotions and excitement and turmoil.  But to us she looks like these shots.  


Last night she pitched 12 innings and I don't have her stats but only one run was allowed. The winning run for Levelland.  I hate that the girls lost but I love how tight and awesome they all played together.  And Kat?  That amazing pitcher that is headed to Lynchburg, VA to play softball.  WE HITT OFF YOU GIRL!!!  

I'm so proud of our Lady Pirates and how awesome they played last night!  Way to go girls!  

And as a mom, I have to add how proud I am of my Kalyn Marie.  She's worked hard all year, and I'm so proud of her.   Last night she went in late and made some plays and played well representing the FRESHMAN class of Cooper.  LOVE to watch WHEELS STEAL!  (I have to get a shot of that.  Burt, Boo's dad, gave her the nickname.)

I love you, Kalyn!  (she's #12 below)
