MK Softball...

Well on Saturday, October 26th, Mario and I played in the Mary Kay Softball Tournament in Irving. We didn't make the championships, but we had a blast!

The guys on our team were great and fun.. of course they all knew one another from Manufacturing and then we had Manny and myself from Corporate...Mario played great...he was placed in Left field with Julio since they were faster in running and Ashley and myself were placed over by Right field...and Karen as catcher..we only had 3 girls on the team and 10 guys.. our first game we won and we also had 3 players get injured (pulled hamstrings)...but we still won!!

We had a drawing for prizes and Mario won a digital camera (which I told him to take care of it) and I won GUCCI sunglasses. I have to get Mario a memory card for his camera, he loves it.. and it's green!!

Tonight is NMHS's game in Tyler, TX... and Nathalie has made the PACESETTER KICKLINE!!

Every Monday, the Pacesetters have to try-out for the week's game kickline...this is Nathalie's 1st time to be on the Kickline and I wouldn't miss it for the world!!

It'll be a long lonely drive..hopefully Mauricio will go, but I doubt it...

I'm so very proud of her.. she was excited when she told me that she made it.

Well it's been almost a year since Mario broke his femur. He's been doing very well, obeying the Dr's orders and when he had physical therapy, he would work his leg out as instructed when at home. He's come a long way since the injury.

Today was his Dr. appt and the Dr. asked him how his leg has been, if it's been bothering him or not, then he asked Mario if he wanted to remove the rod or keep it in? Mario said that he wanted to keep it in, since it wasn't bothering him. The Dr. said that was fine, if he(Mario) ever decides that it is bothering him or he wants to have it removed to just give him (dr.) a call.

When we were leaving, Mario said that he wasn't sure if he wanted to play in next week's game, because it would have been exactly ONE YEAR from his injury. I told him to don't look at it that way... I told him, he needs to play in the game and look at it as a celebration that he is able to play again and walk again...that the injury didn't hold him back or hold him down.. he has overcomed that injury and needs to look what lies ahead.

I hope that he will understand by game day next week and take my words to heart.
