Avery’s second Miracle League Game

Last Thursday before we left for Durham,NC Avery had her second Miracle League Game…which of course she had a blast at..it was suppose to be bring your own teacher week but Avery’s teacher’s didn’t end up showing up..im not sure what happened bc they told me they were coming when I handed them the invite..and I asked Avery the day of if her teachers were going to come and play baseball with her and she told me yes..so im not really sure if they got lost or forgot about it…which she was a little disappointed as was I bc if I knew they were going to come I would of asked one of her other teachers or therapist so she could play with one of them…

But they had back up just in case..so the back up buddies for the kids who didn’t have any teachers were the Landrum base ball team..This was her buddy..

Avery up to bat..at first they said shes a non tee batter..and I was saying to someone beside me..what shes not going to be able to hit that ball with out a tee..and as soon as them words left my mouth…she hit that ball..with out a tee.

So as you can see in the picture ^ there..that when she came home she forgot to touch the home base with her foot..so the announcer told her she didn't touch the base....so what does she do.....well she listens to him of course;) and runs over to home and bends down and touches it!!!:)) hahaha!!! LOVE HER!!! DSC_0902

I have to say that it was a pretty awesome night..there were two kiddos that usually walk with walkers and they wanted nothing to do with them while walking the bases. one crawled around the entire bases. and one walked with his arm supports instead of his walker..the kids were determined..it was soo awesome..pure joy…these games are so much more then just a couple of kids playing baseball..so much more.
