The Mighty Fire Flames

June 24, 2017

8U CHAMPS!! 🏆
Undefeated in both the regular season and tourney.
They. Earned. This.
So proud of our mighty Fire Flames, and so proud of our mighty Gracie.  She was an absolute beast out there on the field.

Our girl went out with a bang tonight.
In her last game ever of 8U coach-pitch softball, on the last pitch that her daddy will ever get to throw to her during a game, she hit a home run. Yep, a home run. Such a fitting end to her season, and to her time spent as an 8U ball player. 💕

This guy.
What a coach.
Because his Fire Flames dominated this season, he faced attacks and accusations on more than one occasion from individuals on opposing teams. You wouldn’t believe some of the stuff he had to hear and experience. Bums me out, just thinking about it all. But, he handled himself so well, in the midst of all of the junk swirling around him and his girls. He just kept at it…and continued to throw himself wholeheartedly into his coaching role, just as he throws himself wholeheartedly into everything that he does. After winning the championship tonight, his girls presented him with such a sweet, thoughtful token of appreciation. A wonderful reminder of why he loves coaching. A wonderful reminder of what truly matters when it’s all said and done. A wonderful reminder that this season was a huge success, in more ways than one. 💛❤️💛

It was an unforgettable season.
Thankful for the memories we made, and for this great group of girls! Bryan and I grew to love each and every one of them!
