June 5 on 5

I can't believe that it's already time for another five on five.  The month has flown by.  I thought I would share a handful of pictures from the month of May and what life consisted of for me.  It was pretty easy to sum up.  First off is softball with my girls.  We pretty much live at the ballpark more than we live at home.  They are in the full swing of things with their seasons and loving every minute of it.  I have to say for softball not really being my sport I have really grown to love it and there is not many other places I would rather be than watching my two favorite girls.  

April 30th also marked one year since my dad passed away.  It's been a really rough year and life has changed so much.  My priorities, my focus, basically everything.  Life just isn't the same without him here, but we are finding our way through the fog together.  I wish he were still here to sit next to me at my girls' games.  There wasn't many things that he enjoyed more than watching softball and I miss him tremendously.  I wish he were here to see my Lou play.  It was something he didn't get to see while he was still here, but I know he is watching from a distance.  I'm certain that he is so proud, and I know he is still with us.  We visited his grave on Memorial Day together as a family.  It is such a place of peace for me.  I'm grateful to be surrounded by family that understand all too well how I feel.  I know they miss him as much as I do.  He is definitely not forgotten.  For more five on five please visit my friend Naomi's blog and follow the circle.

Love the images of your girls playing ball, so gorgeous! And I'm so sorry about your Dad, I can't even begin to imagine the loss you must know and feel.

I can't believe it's been a year since your dad passed away. Time flies! I'm glad that you could remember and honor him. :) And your kiddos are becoming stellar softball players!

I'm sorry about your dad. It's so hard to lose someone you love that is so close. It's good to remember him.
Love the ball images!

Hugs to you.
Awesome action shots! Owen is doing coach pitch baseball this year and it is so fun to watch! Even if it is just 1st graders. Ha!

Max is doing coach pitch this year. It's his fourth year of baseball, and really it's the only sport he likes, so I hope he keeps with it! (Just wish I could get him to practice more!)
These are great action shots! I have yet to even get up the nerve to attempt some action shots. ACK!
How hard it must be to be missing your dad. Sending you some hugs and love.
