Default Bragging on a Grand Daughter!

I just have to post this. An article written about Rylee and my daughter and son-in-law. Thought it was well written.



I want to brag on this girl right here. She is truly an offensive MVP from this last weekend. She batted .667 on the weekend to lead our team in batting average. Rylee has had to work to get there mentally and physically and she has proven when you put your mind to it, you can do it! We could not have won this weekend without the huge role she played in the lineup. She also was moved from 1st base (which she usually always plays) to 3rd base all weekend and it didnít phase her.
She and her family are the epitome of a coachís dream. She shows up, works hard and NEVER complains. One time before practice Rylee was crying off to the side, because she was hurt and couldnít practice and I heard mom telling her, ďyou better dry it up, get up, and go be a good teammate and you help anyway you can. ď She still came to practice, even though she was hurt and they live out of town. Secondly, mom didnít feel sorry for her, she taught her a life lesson right there about what team really looks like.
Her parents donít make excuses for her. Her parents donít run to the dugout to talk to her or comfort her when she does something wrong or gets yelled at, they donít come to the dugout when she does wellÖ they cheer from the stands. She shows up and plays hard wherever I put her. If sheís sitting out an inning, sheís the same Rylee as when sheís playing infield. She will out work anyone, not to try to impress or hear praise but because thatís who she is! (There is a difference)
Rylee coming out and being an offensive MVP this weekend after some ups and downs at the plate is because she has solid parents. At the state tourney she often was used as a flex player and didnít bat. Her parents didnít stress, they didnít talk mess about other kids who were batting, they didnít yell at her from the stands, they didnít ask me a question about it but were there usual cheerful upbeat parents . Rylee just kept being Rylee and that paid off big!
Rylee, Iím so proud of you. You were a stud this weekend and more importantly you are a great example of what grit and determination look like. You are a true light to your team! Players like this are rare and you will see her playing college basketball or softball one day because these kind of attributes, mixed with her talent will reap rewards!

A kid like this is the result of a long line of good breeding. Congratulations on helping to raise a selfless and self-actualized young lady.

Awesome!! You should print this out for her, have her keep a copy in her wallet, purse etc. And also print a poster size for her bedroom wall. In tough times Hopefully she reads this and powers through, in great times she does the same and becomes even better. Awesome stuff!! Be proud!!

I would love to do this, but living in Goldthwaite there not any options. No clue where to start. Would be willing to work with someone on here that knows what I need.

Crazy true story. On the day she was born her dad called me to come over and meet him in the hospital parking lot. A few days earlier he had bought me a bow to replace one that had gotten stolen the week before. Great family!!!
