Weekly Winners: July 25-31

Photos. We've got photos.

The official cheer photographer is back in action, although this time we're not talking cheer mats.

We're talking the whiffle ball field.

It was the parents vs. the girls. And it wasn't pretty. (Except for the girls. They were.)

Anyway ... In these next few photos, make sure you look for where the BALL is.

Janet HITS:

Yes, that white dot way up in the upper right of the photo IS the ball!
Take THAT, elementary school mean girls who always picked me last for the team.

And Janet DOESN'T:

I know. It's kinda cheating to post photos OF me that I clearly didn't shoot as Weekly Winners.
Oh well.  Guess I'll take my bat and ball and go home! *snicker*

My girl shows why she is a competitive cheerleader, not a softball player:

Nice face, Roo.

This is what it looks like when she ISN'T swingin' and missin':

Dig the ... ahem ... eye black?

Chest bump!

From the diamond to the pool to cool off:

No, not my kid. She's blond, remember?

And one more for good measure. This is also not my kid, but one of the girls working on a standing full in the team's gymnastics class. A standing full is a corkscrew-looking thing from a standing position (no momentum) that is incredibly difficult.

This was shot (fuzzily) with my phone and sharpened up as best I could. Next time I'm taking my REAL camera to the gym!

That's it from whiffle ball central. Check out the other Weekly Winner photographers at Lotus' house!

The pink eye grease is a nice touch.

That's a pro ballplayer stance you've got there Janet. Nice form.

Admit it, you had your eyes closed. :-)

That pool shot is amazing!
Have a wonderful Sunday Janet! said...

So fess up... how many recruiters have contacted you about signing with their teams? ;-)

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Whoa, cool flip shots!

Heather said...

Great shots! I love the pink grease under her eyes! So cute!

Daisy said...

I like the eye "black"!

Meg @sleepynewmommy said...

Great chest bump shot! Perfect timing!

Denise @ Musician's Widow said...

Chest bump! Love it! Looks like lots of good times to me!

I abso-freaking-lutely LOVE your description of a standing full. Best EVER!!! Hmm- maybe that's why you're a writer. I call it a flippy thing that defies all laws of physics and gravity- must be why I'm a scientist. LOVE the softball pics!
