Softball, softball, softball 



Summer came and went, didn't it? Who stole our most relaxed season and replaced it with a whirlwind of activity? At our house, softball seems to be the culprit. Summers are always busy with our favorite sport. Our daughters are just far enough in part in age to never be on the same team, so usually he goes one way with one and I got the other way with the other. But this year there weren't enough girls in our oldest daughter's age group and most importantly, there wasn't a coach. So out of desperation, my husband and I tried our hand at coaching. We rounded up everyone willing to play summer league softball and moved our youngest daughter up to be on the team (at her request.) It made for a major obsession but I have no regrets. All four of us going in the same direction, being on the same team, was amazing!! We didn't win a lot of games, but we had a blast and the days flew by. And now school's back in session.

I'm writing on a tight deadline and our oldest daughter came home yesterday (second day of school) with a schedule. . . high school softball practices start next week after school. Oh, and the coach has offered to let our youngest daughter practice with the team, even though she's still too young to play in high school games. What's a devoted softball mom to do? I'm charging up my little laptop and getting ready to follow the neon yellow ball. Since I'm not coaching, I can at least write while they practice!

How wonderful! I know what you mean about bidding summer farewell. My son starts fourth grade on Monday, and my baby girl starts Kindergarten. Gulp.
 
Your love of softball is inherited, I believe. I remember going to games in Newport with you when we were in school to watch various members of your family play. I especially remember going the summers that Daddy was sick and in the hospital. It was so nice to be able to go somewhere and not have to worry about him for a while. Good luck to your girls' team.
 
I'm not posting this on the correct post, but I just had to say how much I enjoyed your book THE RELUCTANT COWGIRL. I loved it!

Blessings.

HI! Email me at Christine_Writes@yahoo.com and give me your email address so I can write back and pass it on to Sandy. I've often wondered how you were doing!!
 
I'm a former softball mom, now a grandmom! Cherish this hectic time it goes soooo very fast! My husband coaches our daughters team ( getting the job exactly the way you and your husband did! lol I was the "official" score keeper. What great memories we have! It was a blast. By the way I just finished "In Search of Love" most awe-inspiring book I read Thanks!
 
It's October and I'm still wishing for those less hectic days! :-) Maybe we will have a snow day soon and we can all stay home and catch up.
I am looking forward to reading your book The Reluctant Cowgirl that I won at WordVessel. My sister has recommended the book Simply Christmas as well, she told me it's great! Guess I'll be heading to the bookstore soon.

 
I loved Forever Christmas, it was my first Christmas book for the season, I stayed up till 2:00 am to finish this morning. Love the triangle love story. It was well written. It was my first book written by you, and I look forward to reading many more. Good Luck in all you do.

COMMENTS:
Christine, It was great to meet you this evening in Grand Rapids. That was the first book signing my daughter, Courtney, attended and she thought it was so cool to "get close and talk with the authors"!. Enjoy the rest of week and I hope many come to visit you all!
 
Christine, Just finished Along Came a Cowboy and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I will definitely be picking up more of your books. You did a great job making me care about Rachel and Jack, along with their friends. I felt you stayed true to what the characters would do or think. As a Christian, I do not like Christian romance that is heavy on the romance and light on the Christian. I feel that you blended both elements beautifully. I didn't feel like I was reading a sermon, nor did I feel like the author threw in saying grace just to be able to call the story Christian. Bravo!
 
Mrs. Lynxwiler, I loved your book Forever Christmas. I have read it 7 or 8 times in about 8 months. That is the only book of yours that I have read although I'm anxious to read more. Thank you so much for what you are doing.
 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!!!! I am so honored!!!!

Hi Christine...
First let me say that I read Forever Christmas and really enjoyed it.

I am looking forward to reading The Reluctant Cowgirl. My question is...Amazon has Shoot For The Stars listed as also being The McCord Sister book 1. Is Shoot for the Stars supposed to be the second in The McCord Sisters series or is that an error or a large print edition?

Have great day.
