Yes!!!! What a fantastic day!!! Some great softball! It was beautiful outside to top it all off!!! Blue sky and lots of sun!! We had an awesome day adding to more W's!!! Go USA! We started the day off on the right foot, running into Tennis stud James Blake who had beaten Federer the day before. We congratulated him and off we went loading up the buses for our double header.
Japan was our first game, Tasha started us off with a huge blast and got our roll going! She was so pumped which pumped us all up! Oh I just grin thinking about it! Yes Tash!!! Jes and Bustos then hit back to back home runs! It was so great, so fun! We beat Japan... 7-0 one more down, one more to go. We started the Canada game from yesterday behind 0-1, and pulled it out 8-1! Another great day defensively and offensively! 2 down for the day! To get through pool play we have 3 more games, one a day. We have Chinese-Taipei to gear up for tomorrow. Taking it one day at a time. What a day! We relaxed, enjoyed and on to the next!
After the game we were able to chat a bit with our parents! :) They were exhausted as well, they are cheering strong you guys would be proud of them back home! It was a long day in the heat for them as well. We kept them on their feet! My family was excited to attend tonight's track and field contests! It was opening night for track and field. I will find out how it was tomorrow! They were excited to go and check out the birds nest and cheer for Team USA!
We rushed to the dining hall after a long day at the field. The food tasted really good. I had a salad, tilapia, salmon, and a slice of cheese pizza! Busto's highlight was chatting with Kobe Bryant! Shes a huge Laker fan! The bball guys were asking about her at opening ceremonies night, so they finally caught up!
After dinner we headed back to the room! Nuvey, Bustos, and I, hit up rock band! We had a jam session!!! It was awesome! SO much fun! We rocked it out! We are a great band! No name yet! Nuvey is our drummer, I'm on the guitar and Bustos is our Rock Star Singer!!! We Rock! It was my first time playing and we were addicted! We will keep you updated on our progress!
Time for some z's and some more softball tomorrow! Good night! Thanks for all you late night troopers!!! I know its not easy! Ace made it through the Japan game but couldn't make it for the Canada game, my little love! Casey's been so great watching it all, my big love!!! Thanks for all your continued support!
