Danny is playing on a Parks and Rec softball team this year named The Children Left Behind (most of the team is made up of teachers). "Playing" isn't really a good way to describe what his team is doing.....they are mostly losing, BIG TIME; but it isn't about winning or losing, right? The games are on Monday and Wednesday nights at either 6:30, 7:45 or 9:00 pm. Most of the games, thus far, have been at 7:45 or 9:00 but tonight's game was at 6:30, so Emerson and I thought we would go cheer Daddy to (hopefully) a victory.
Immediately when we got there, Danny had to go throw the ball and warm-up. Well, Emerson wanted to be right next to her Daddy (for the whole evening actually). Luckily Danny didn't have to play for the first couple of innings so he was able to play around and throw the ball with Emerson. She wouldn't let go of that yellow ball. She loved it and carried it around with her all night. Once Daddy got put in the game Emerson stood at the fence and just yelled for her Daddy. "Daddy, Daddy, Go Daddy!!! Good Job!" She was so happy to watch him on both the catcher and pitcher position. She had no clue they lost 24 - 1...she was so proud of Daddy no matter what!!! Although she should have been proud of his pitching. The one time he did get to pitch, he got 3 up and 3 down! (You all like my new softball lingo, right?? I totally had to ask Danny about that to explain it in this blog!!)
Needless to say, Emerson was not happy when we told her it was time to go home. She had a small meltdown but we told her we would come back soon....(Wednesdays game is also a 6:30 game.) Emerson had a great time and I am pretty sure this Sunday's trip to Target will include a small glove and ball on our bill!!!
