Softball starts, spring is near…
There’s really no sign of spring up here in Michigan’s crazy Upper Peninsula. In fact, it seems that there is even more snow, cold, and wind than ever. Things will be heating up for the Lake Superior State Lakers softball team, however, as they start their season today in the Superior Dome over in Marquette. The girls play three game today, taking on Lakeland, Wisconsin-Stevens Point, and Wisconsin-Superior. Good luck to the girls this weekend, and all season long. Their season actually kicked off last weekend, though, with the annual ‘Take Me Out To The Ballgame’ spaghetti dinner. There was fun and games, and the kids were thrilled that they won two of the raffles. They won a movie package that included, movie passes, popcorn and candy, along with different popcorn seasoning. Also includes some free movie rentals. The other raffle we won was a cooler, beach towels, beach toys, water bottles, and sun screen. Uh…we’ll have to put that one up on the shelf for a few months, but very thankful that we got lucky. And all the money for the tickets goes to the softball team, so it’s a good cause. Brian had a good time showing off his throwing arm and playing with the balloons. Lily and Trevor drew pictures for the girls on the paper table cloths. We had a great time, but we’re sick of the snow and ready to burn the snowman, already.
What a neat fundraiser and at least your can enjoy the movies until you have need of the sunscreen and smmer things. 🙂 Here’s hoping spring comes your way soon. Oh, and cool hair, Lily!
Thanks, Kristen. We’ll be keeping busy the until April, then it’s all baseball! The cold and snow can leave at any time and it’s good with me. Yeah, Lily is very proud of her hair, too.
That’s exciting that it’s starting up and fundraiser. It sure doesn’t look like winter’s going to end up here either.
No..it doesn’t seem like this snow and crap will ever end up here! At least the weather seemed a lot better down state where the ballparks are!
