I'm not Lavar Ball. I haven't had to push anything on her luckily. I'm just there to support her. She came to me asking to do the camp at UF. A few years ago I made a comment like, 'Hey, the gators have a camp for softball if you'd like to do it one day.' Only time I ever had to say anything and she's been asking every year at her bday if she's old enough to do the gator camp. In all honesty I had forgotten about it as she's been doing the ones at Jax U during the summer. Because she wants to do the camps. Part of that is just getting her outside more. I don't care what sport my kids play they just have to do something and stay active. See way to many kids these days that are beyond lazy. She tried surfing and didn't care for it so I'm not going to harp on it. She loves running and doing cross country for her school. Only push I have on my kids is just do something even if you're not good at it. Just being part of a team is so important in social aspects of life and building lifelong friendships. She has read this to me so many times that it's nice to see my 8 year old have passion for something and go for it >>> http://amanda-scarborough.com/10-reasons-softball-can-change-your-life/ She may never pitch for the Gators but at least I know it wasn't because she didn't try. I had my time in the sun already, now it's her turn to shine.
