GO ON! JUST TRY TO GUESS WHO GOT MVP AT HER LAST GAME!!!

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND MAN, SHE WAS AWWWWEEESSSOOMMMEEE!!!

She played pitcher this past Saturday, which, for her level, really doesn't include any actual pitching, but they do have to stand near the coach (who is pitching) and field anything that comes her way, which, let's face it, they're 7, so except for that handful who can hit that thing off the back wall, the rest pretty much end up right around and about the pitcher's territory.

And that was just fine for Saia.

She is so quick on her feet. Quick to release. And has a cannon for an arm. The first position the coach ever had her play was third 'cause it never even phased her to just shoot it all the way over to first.

She works so well with her team. And with two of her little friends, especially, with whom she very nearly nailed a couple of singles, and is easily on track for a double before the season is out. You know, if, um...we were the competitive sort.

Once she gains a little more directional control, man, she'll be unstoppable.

But it was so great to see -- especially for her to see -- all her hard work and genuine excitement and devotion to the game awarded with the prized and coveted game ball.

She. Was. Absolutely. G.L.O.W.I.N.G!!!!

Oh, Saia. I am beaming with delight for you. How incredibly awesome. I must say, Olivia would be so thrilled to see that you are sporting her all-time favorite color, pink. This gets me excited to hopefully, see that one day, Chiqui will be in a softball uniform doing the same thing you are doing. Congratulations, you look tough. I am proud of you.

Thanks, guys! @Tracey, had to back into my archives to recall what "top shiela" meant. :D

She's already asking about golf and swim camp this summer and we're signing her up for soccer now. I'll be contacting colleges shortly to start working on the scholarship paperwork. ;P
