Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Yesterday Beckett (#4) was ready to “play ball” with her Smurf’s team game at 9 am at the NAO (North Austin Optimist ) fields in Austin!

A perfect day with blue sky, sun and a breeze!

I love going to her games and supporting her interests!

I was so proud of the girls as they are really playing well together. Practicing their plays, fielding, pitching and hitting really paid off in yesterday’s game! They were on fire and beat their opponent easily. Their excitement was evident with their cheering from the dugout during the game.

The coach is one of the teammates mom and she played softball for Harvard!

Hudson always comes to the games to support his sister. I looked around as he wasn’t sitting by me anymore....look where I found him!

He had a bird's view by home plate!

Dorie, It's great to be at her games, and really commendable for her brother to consistently attend too, regardless of his viewing location!

I love this!  I'm a retired softball mom & watching my girls play right through college (Go Skyhawks!!) resulted in memories & connections that are lasting a lifetime.  Go Becket!!

Thank you Brenda Mayette ! I love that Beckett likes softball and basketball..she is narrowing down the sports as you can't play them all!

Love that! You can't play them all but it would be nice if our young athletes can play more than one...  They seem to "need" to commit to one earlier & earlier leading to physical issues & more.  I love this topic almost as much as real estate.  LOL!

It's the season and it is always fun to watch the kids play, especially when we are related. Our youngest grandson just made the high school baseball team so we will be there to support him.

Hi Dorie- I love seeing Beckett play!  I thought of you both today on our walk at Meyer Park where they have tons of soccer fields. Out on the sidelines were parents, grandparents and others cheering them on. I love seeing what the siblings of the athletes are doing. Like Hudson, some find a better viewing place.Some are playing their own little game.

Hi Kathy Streib ,

Sometimes Hudson's friends are there depends on the games. Hudson always sits with me and talks and sometimes the whole game. But often he will take off with his friends or like yesterday found a tree to climb!

It looks like Hudson found the best seat in the house, haha.  Her team name catches my attention since I didn't think the smurfs were still popular, but I guess they must be, haha.
