We've been busy but we are enjoying... I was honored to attend a fundraiser for Health Corps, Dr. Oz's Charity in NY. It was very extravagant, amazing! There were Elegant Acrobats, Rope Climbers, Russell Simmons, the Iron Chef, Quincy Jones, and so many/much more, an incredible event. Its not the event its the cause! Health Corps is helping fight childhood obesity, assisting schools reevaluate their nutrition and physical education classes. I am on the Athlete Advisory Board of N Play which is also a charity whom partnered with Health Corps. An honor!
After went over to NJ and met with Diamond Nation... so exciting! The fields are coming along! Its going to be awesome!
Oh, we had a great week following! I flew out to speak at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament Dinner in Peoria, Ill. What a great group, again an honor! So fun to be around these woman enjoying such a great time in their lives! Congrats to Bradley University for winning it all!
From there I met up with the JF Camp Crew, my dear family! Oh where would we be... they are our rock! We had an amazing camp in Oklahoma! Thanks to the Healton Lady Bulldogs Softball Team for being incredible hosts! They were so so so sweet! Ace was spoiled rotten! First, he was generously given the Chaps you see above! He instantly had a strut! He's a true Cowboy... not quite. Then he was given spurs, also pictured above. You should of seen him walking around. Oh, it was too cute, hilarious! Then real "game used" numbers for the back of his vest from Spud, a true Cowboy! So much fun! Thanks to you all, we look forward to coming back next year!
The camp was so much fun! We had a great group, they were so excited to be there! The Coaches that came in to help, Big Thanks! I had fun hanging, like the good ole' days! It was such a great weekend filled with campers from 9 different states, the farthest camper all the way from Michigan! So many families so eager to learn and be around the game. Thanks for all the great memories, even if we were soaking wet on Sunday! We pulled it off and had a blast! Thank you Jesus for holding that rain til later on Sunday... the odds were against us! Once again, the Lord prevailed as always, Thank you Jesus!
After camp we loaded up and headed to Round Rock to get back to Daddy ASAP! We were blessed to spend Mothers Day with both our incredible Mother's and so many more special moms! Casey was so sweet and got me a big girl camera for Mother's Day... I'm so excited! Oh, and a pair hot mama pair cowboy boots! I gotta be able to hang with my cowboy "Ace"!
This pic above was at Casey's game... too cute. Ace having his own camera crew following him around the ball park! E, is doing a story on Baseball Couples. I couldn't pass this picture up! It will air in July, we will keep you posted.
This is Ace's Mommy look... I love it! My fav! Just Rotten!
...One day! :)
Ace's favorite part about the ball park, the clubhouse! He can't wait to get in there! So this is Ace being handed off to Daddy, his ticket in the clubhouse!
Today at the park pitching with my dad, Ace was pretending the dugout was the clubhouse. Yep, a bit of a difference between Daddy's fields and Mommy's fields! :) But we can pretend... until we get there!
We enjoyed our few days together as a family! I am so very grateful for those times when we can just relax and hang. Even if we are unpacking and packing at least we are together, and that's what matters.
We just announced our JF Softball Camp dates for this fall! So exciting!!! We are gearing up for a fun filled summer full of ball! I am enjoying College Softball, Go Cats!!! Its that time... summer is here!
Thank you all for most importantly your generous thoughtful prayers. We feel them, I have felt them these past couple of weeks! Thank you, as we continue to look to Him for courage, strength, and guidance in all we do!
Dreaming & Believing, Looking UP!
