This girl has always been attracted to all things shiny, and adding a new medal to her collection was a great event. It was the baseball tournament the other night, with her baba as the coach, that brought her a medal AND a plaque. In true overseas ESL fashion, the plaque said "teaball" instead of "tee ball," but that makes it even cooler and funnier.

Favorite things about this photo:

Love how she is looking at her medal as she is walking away

Not such a fan of the "I can't take a minute of my time to take a photo for my mama." This is the forced smile look after a bunch of zombie-eyed goofball ones.

I am, however, a big fan of her excitement about medals. She has now separated them into two categories: ones she has earned and ones she was just given, or purchased at a random German flea market. She really did buy an old reproduction of an Olympic one there last year.
