The "Why"




I have shared with you the "how" and some of the "what" of our long weekend away. Here is the "why".


Miss N, a great left-handed pace bowler.

Miss N and Miss G, our 14 year old twins, were part of a girls' cricket team representing our region. Many weekends and Sundays during winter were spent training as a team, in various towns around our area. They have all become good friends over the months and work together very well as a team.


Celebrations after one of Miss N's wickets

Over the weekend the six regional teams played four half day games each. On the Friday afternoon they had training sessions in preparation for their games.

Miss G, also a good pace bowler

Well bowled Miss G!

Some had a great weekend with the bat too.

Our twins love their cricket. Our local cricket comp begins tomorrow. Six of our children will be playing this season with Miss V and Miss O playing for the first time.

To bardzo dobrze, że Twoje dzieci interesują się sportem i biorą w nim czynny udział. Śliczne są Twoje sportowe zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.

Very interesting, that sport is not common in Sweden so I think it´s really fun to read about it. :-)

Great action shots from your twins.

It sounds like a favourite sport in your house, we aren't too sporty here I'm sure hubby would love one of his girls to be but Miss 13 enjoys going to watch the AFL with her Dad which is sweet. It's great that your twins enjoy it so much and that they are so dedicated they will look back on these time fondly. Good luck in the cricket competition.

I thought your trip might have had something to do with cricket!

Love seeing all those ponytails hanging out from under the girls' caps. All the smiles, high-fives and physical activity, good for the body, the soul and a great way to make friends.
