Another loss, still high hopes!

Well another loss for the women... big bummer! I was so sad to have to see another teammate go, as you could tell by my 2 minute pause when Mr. Trump put me on the spot. It was terrible having to name someone. It was so tough... I was so torn and in a position I didn't want to be in. Nadia was so much fun to be around! She was of few words and when she spoke it was usually funny or very clever! I enjoyed getting to know her, especially being a big fan of hers! She was very thoughtful and very much a team player. We women really needing a victory being down 0-2. It was a lot of fun seeing Nelly in action, she is exceptional and full of knowledge. She is a great leader and very talented. Again, we did not use our "celebrity-ness" and came up short.

Training is going well! We are here at the Olympic Training Center surrounded by some of the greatest athletes in the world. I was chatting with some of the bmx women's team today, it was so interesting to hear about their world! They have built this massive ramp and course down here that is quite intimidating. They are working hard fighting for the Olympic spots! There are lots of track athletes that are residents, field hockey, and rowers. Its pretty inspiring us all having one common goal. Beijing!

Ace is doing great... he is loving having grass to play in. Our yard in Az consists of cacti and rocks. He loves driving his Winnie the Pooh car around, he thinks he owns this place. It was so funny talking to the bmx riders, them on their bikes and Ace on his car. He was trying to figure out how to upgrade, he was checking them out. Antonio (Lisa's boy) and Ace had fun with finger paints today that ended up to be full body paints. They are little buds! Its so cute! I better get going I'm missing out on kisses from Ace. I love it I could just eat him up, he loves to cuddle. The cutest most irresistible sight is him taking his binky out and leaning in to give me a kiss! Nite, gotta go it's my favorite time of the day, cuddle time.

I just bought tickets to the game in Topeka, KS for my husband & my daughter to come see you ladies play! She is 11---& soooo very excited to see you (she's a pitcher too)! June is not going to get here soon enough.
I think quite a few girls from her 12 & Under softball team are going as well! Are you guys doing autograph sessions? If not-is there something we can set up for this team if they all go?
Thanks & Best of Luck to you Ladies!

Hey Jennie,

I just watched The Apprentice and I just wanted to say that I totally appreciate the way you stuck to doing what was right and I totally respect the way that you did not choose to become someone that you are not for the sake of winning. I do not know alot about your sport but I can see why you are so successful at it. That world where people like Omarosa win is a world of lying, cheating, and do anything to succeed and that is just not who you are. I saw a lot of myself in you on there because I have been in situations where I either had to choose to do something that went against my morals or risk not succeeding and many times I lost but watching your performance reinforces what I already know winning is not everything. So in my book Jennie you are a HUGE winner. Young women everywhere had the opportunity see what fair play means. Omarosa would fit well at Enron. FYI I am a black woman like the O as well but that is where our similiarities end. Jennie why don't you approach the Network about doing a show with the same premise as The Apprentice but one where you are rewarded based on ho well you work with your teammates maybe something called "FairPlay", I would love to see that.
Go Jennie!!!!!

Hello, I just wanted to let you know how much of an inspiration you are to young girls, my 9 year old niece looks at you as a hero of the faith, it is refreshing to see how you represent you faith in a truly honest way, some athletes thank God for thier gifts but sometimes it is just a tag line that they use and it has no meaning. All the best and God Bless
