Home Run!

Morgan is playing softball again this year and having a grand time doing it!  Many of the girls she played with last year are on her team again.  We love spending the beautiful Colorado evenings cheering on her team, the Carbon Valley Crushers.  The girls have some great coaches and so far are undefeated.

A few weeks ago was Morgan's first game and she hit a HOME RUN off the pitch.  Ken and I were chatting during the game and cheered loudly when a girl got a great hit that sailed past the shortstop and into the center outfield.  It wasn't until she rounded the bases that we realized it was Morgan!  Amazing!  For her home run effort she earned the game ball.  So cool! 

Of course we knew we had to celebrate and we went out for ice cream at Good Times.  Knowing that "if Morgan hits a homer, we go out for ice cream" has inspired louder cheering from her brothers and sister in the bleachers when she is up at bat.  :)

Way to go Morgan!!!

Good thing you realized it was her before she crossed home plate! :) Nice job, Morgan, and thanks for being a good roommate to Kaiya on the MESA trip!
