10: 1 | 1 | 126 | 126 | D | 3 | Mahaska Midwest | Boone | VS | July 17, 2010 | A scorcher--of a day and a game! After 8 innings, Boone came out on top 3-6, but Mahaska Midwest proved it would be a contender for the state title! Elyse went the distance at the mound, striking out 10 while giving up 8 hits and 1 walk. Mahaska Midwest had 7 hits. Despite the valiant effort, Pella could not quite pull out a win.
11: The loss did not dampen the girls' spirits! Just some of their activities included the Home Run Derby, "borrowing" props, enjoying the playground and picnic, and playing some ping-pong! | And the winners are..(NOT) Jordan, Elyse, and Andrea! (Here are your "awards"!) | Elyse, what a big tongue you have! | Twisted Sisters? or Two Little Monkeys? | Bet it's going in the POOL!
12: The Pool Party may have been poorly attended, but the few who were there had a ball! | Synchronized swimming was the sport of choice today!

18: (FIRST NAME) | Elyse discovers her second favorite sport this week... | PING PONG!
19: The last day included a trip to the Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley, Illinois with Arkemas and Kingerys. Feeding the lorikeets was a big hit--the ultimate combination of excitement and fear--just what the girls needed to get ready for the championship game in a few hours! Although it was hot, we found some shade, a mister, and an elephant willing to give the kids a shower! Elyse discovered she has the wingspan of a turkey vulture--perfect for pitching softball, apparently! | I ZOO; | DO YOU?

26: And the Softball Princess ended her time at state by kissing a frog...(except that it was a toad and she didn't really kiss it!). | The Princess and the FROG?
27: The end of the road...in more ways than one! Elyse spent her first time camping with Sam, Jennie, and Tracy after the final game. Here are Elyse, Sam & Jennie, back home on Friday afternoon!
