Intramural Softball

A few months ago a friend of Zack's asked if I would join their intramural team for the medical college. They asked me because they needed another girl for intramural rules to keep it even on girls and boys.  I told her I hadn't played since I was in elementary school but that I would give it a shot!  It ended up being a lot of fun. We made it to the playoffs where we played our best game ever and we should have won if the other team didn't cheat.  Oh well, it was still a fun time!
Here is our team photo after our sad loss in the playoffs.  Elise was our team mascot- they even got a shirt for her!  Everyone on the team besides me is a medical student.  They all adore Elise and anytime a softball got the tiniest bit close to her they would all yell "Watch the baby!  Be careful of the baby!".  Don't worry, Zack had her safe and sound every time but it was cute to see how much they care about her.
Here is a family photo of us.  You can see Elise's team shirt she is wearing.  Our team name is Day Old Bread and Elise's says Hunny Bunny. Very cute.  One of the team members made up our name.  I guess it has something to do with the day old bread that Jimmy John's gives away at the end of the day that they can't use. Apparently it is better to use that bread after you have drank a lot of alcohol because it absorbs it better.....this Mormon girl wouldn't know anything about that of course.  But I thought you'd like an explanation about the different name.  They are playing soccer now and Zack is the one in our jersey this time. He is doing a great job and has a lot of fun!

How fun! I'm glad that you are making friends and getting involved out there. I also can't believe how big Elise looks in the little picture. Didn't you just BARELY have her? Wow... time flies!

Awesome!! What a fun thing to do. I love that Elise was the mascot. She has so much hair! Way more hair than Lilia...why am I even surprised? She had more hair than Lilia has ever had since the day she was born :) I love it!
