On August 5th, 2014, Bayleigh started 4th grade. It doesn't even seem like I should be saying that. She spent most of her summer playing softball 4 nights per week and as if yesterday, August 14th, 2014, we've accepted an offer for her to begin travel ball. We learned very quickly that travel ball is a dog eat dog world. It almost resulted in severed friendships numerous times. Tensions were high and words were hurtful and ugly. Loyalties were lost in the process, but it's for the best. My child is my number one priority. She tried out for 4 teams and technically made all 4. The one they declined her but offered her the alternate spot. The decline came as a result of her commitment to her Wild team for fall ball which ended up falling through, but they still wanted her. She was a rockstar at that tryout too! I was/am proud of her! Here's a few pics of our summer. The first is her first day of 4th grade. The kids with her are her best friend Brooke and her brother Brayton who rode the bus to school with her her first day!
