Tasting the Off Season!

I can taste it and oh how sweet it is already! Even sweeter than my birthday cake last night! Casey finishes up Monday... its been a long one, but a blessed one!

We had our first camp to kick off the fall in South Dakota. We had such a blast! Thanks to all the many people who helped to put on a fun weekend! Register on my website for a camp near you!

I am headed to Broxton, Mass this weekend. Going out to announce my partnership with On Deck Sports! Excited about my signature line of pitching mats and the partnership with such an innovative company,

Looking forward to meeting many softball players and people out there at the Rox game on Saturday night! Another first pitch too, should I go under or over hand? Let me know!

Next weekend we are headed to Virginia for Camp #2, and its sold out! Looking forward to another exciting weekend of camp!

My roots are in the mid west, so Ace and I decided to stay and visit with my Grandma's and his Great Grandma's! Its amazing to even say Great-Grandmas! It brought tears of joy to my eyes numerous times. We are so blessed to have 2 incredible, beautiful grandmothers to share so many treasured memories with! Its always so hard to say goodbye! Here are some pictures from the wonderful few days!

I celebrated the big 2-9 yesterday! Time is just flying by! It was lovely to be able to celebrate with my grandmothers and then the Daigles that evening in Texas! Here is a shot of Ace and I after a long day of travel! And thanks to my sis in law, all 29 candles!

Thanks for all the many sweet, generous, and thoughtful birthday wishes! We are so very blessed! We thank the Lord for each and every day as it is a gift, the present!

Can't wait to see Casey even if its for a few minutes before taking off again! :)

Dreaming & Believing! Off season here we come!

It's a great thing you guys are doing, putting on these camps. Glad to see some people are using the strength of their name/face to do something good for kids these days.

And happy birthday.

Brandy said...

I hope you had a great birthday. It's great for ace to see his great-grandmother, that must be a wonderful experience.

The ceremonial first pitch sounds exciting. I know I'm not the first one saying it but throw a riseball as your ceremonial first pitch, that should be great!

You have a camp in Binghamton, New York? Nice. I hear they have some fun places to eat, so you should check that out too.

Anyways, good luck.

Hi Jennie!

Glad you had a wonderful bday!
Your grandmothers seem soooo sweet!

I have a question. Do you do any guest speaking at churches? It'd be awesome to have you come and speak with our Youth Group. You are so inspirational in a way that you reflect God's glory and not your own.
Just a thought :] I know you're busy with camp and catching up with family but just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask :]

God Bless
