Busy Summer June 25, 2012

Posted by pastorsbc1303 in Uncategorized.

Summer is in full effect around the Cox household.  Between softball, swim team, basketball practice, band practice, and church activities we are constantly on the go.  This past Saturday was a highlight so far for the year as the Cox girls all had big days.

Mackenzie and McKenna are playing on our 9-10 yr old Lady Bear softball team.  They had a great season and finished the year in 2nd place.  We had our season ending tournament on Saturday.  In the first game of the day we were tied 4-4 going to the bottom of the last inning.  McKenna led off the inning with a walk and stole 2nd base and 3rd base.   Then mighty Mackenzie got the game winning hit to drive in McKenna to win the game 5-4.  It was a pretty special moment for me as the coach and as their dad to see my two girls have such a big impact on our game.  We lost the championship game later in the day 9-8, but still had a great day and a great season.

Michaela’s softball team played in their season ending tournament on Saturday as well.  They played hard and had to overcome a few injuries and finished in 3rd place.  Michaela had a great year both pitching and hitting.  She won several games pitching including a game where she struck out 11 girls and did not walk anyone.  She hit 2 homeruns this year including a grand slam that helped her team come from behind to beat a team.

McKylie was the only Cox girl at the last swim meet and she took advantage of that by winning the high point trophy for the 8 & under girls.  She was thrilled to get her first trophy.  She has had to battle her sister McKenna all year with McKenna winning three high point trophies in that age group.  So our family has now won high point trophies at every meet this year.

This coming Thursday is going to be perhaps the highlight of the summer. Michaela and I will be traveling together with a group from our church to Southeastern Europe for a week long mission trip.  This will be Michaela’s first ever trip outside of the country.   We are really looking forward to this trip and I cannot wait to see what the Lord does in our lives during this time.

Here are a couple pictures of things from the past few weeks.
