We are in Houston right now continuing our Bound for Beijing tour! We just were in New Mexico yesterday, what a crowd we had! We are so blessed to be able to walk into stadiums all across the country and be so welcomed! I love it! I love this game! Its amazing to see the support for our sport! Im so blessed to be able to be a part of it! We've had a busy month... from Ca to OKC and continuing on! We as a team know we have our work cut out for us and except the challenge. Its a process and for us we need to be at our best come Beijing. We are working hard on and off the field to accomplish our goal! Its been such a blast meeting up with friends and fans that have become friends throughout the years from all over the country. We live an exciting life playing a game and having the honor of representing our great country. We have really began to Bear Down and hit it hard... enjoying everyday!
Ace just continues to brighten each day! Getting bigger and bigger by the minute. He now knows all of his colors! He is just a joy!!!! He has such a great sense of humor and is really just a little goof ball! I can't get enough of him! He had fun in Oklahoma with his cousins and is enjoying his buds on the road, Lisa's Antonio, and Stacey's Chase! They are the cutest, roaming the hotels and airports, and joining us on our bus rides! Playing ball, watching videos, and chasing each other around, they are true buds!
Ace went to NY with me for the Apprentice finale. It was so fun to see all the cast again and catch up. It really was a great group of people and a delight to see them all again! We will be in NY as much as possible with Casey. He had a great spring training and is off to a great start with the Redwings. The season has officially began for him. Lots of exciting stuff.
Thanks to all of the many fans who continue to write and pray for us, as a family and our teams. Thanks for filling the stadiums with such excitement and dedication. Its not easy being apart from our families but when you see young girls faces light up with joy it makes it a little easier. This is why we play for the love of the game and for the future of our sport!
Keep dreaming and believing!
