Dear Sirri,

We had our first T-ball practice today and I came home with sore cheeks. You see, I had such a great time watching you play today, that I smiled so much and it actually made my cheeks hurt.

I was so proud to be your mom and coach today. You hustled when we asked you to hustle. You were so teachable and tried to practice new skills that we were teaching you. You called your teammates by their names when throwing them the ball. You threw the ball like a pro. You kept your eye on the ball. You stayed on your feet the whole practice. You ran the bases with lightning speed. You didn't complain that it was hot and you didn't ask when treat time was. (Not even once. And we all know you like treats!) You really tried your very hardest today. And most importantly you had fun.

I think this is going to be a great season and I'm so glad that we get to spend it together.

Goooooooo Green!

I love you.

Love,

Your Coach and Mom

What a cutie that Sirri is. I was expecting a little more of a pose from her in that picture though. Given her history and all. :) I am so far behind in blog reading. Most go read your older posts now..

I love that your cheeks hurt...not because you were in pain, of course, but because you were so, so, so, so happy. This was a lovely post. I love the letter to your sweet girl.
