Baleigh is extremely serious about pitching these days. I don't think I told any of you that she made the Southern Express 10U traveling team, which is quite an honor. She was the only girl from Carbondale who made the team. The team consists of girls from KY, MO, and all over So IL. Here she is practicing with 7th and 8th grade teammates at Giant City School. Just look at her face...a little competitive?? I don't know where she gets it!
Puppa Sade...proudly showing off her zipper flower collar from Auntie Lou!
Baleigh and her friend Elissa were undercover junior SuperFans at the football game against Herrin. They had fun...and really, it was just a fun pose :)
One more thing! I forgot to mention that I woke up Saturday morning around 7 am to a very loud "Moooooooo"! I was very startled by the volume of the moo so I headed to the window...and sure enough, there was a large cow in our back yard! As soon as I opened the door to the deck off our kitchen, the poor cow scampered off in fear. She then went across Giant City road, and I gasped, hoping there were no cars coming She went into the neighbors yard, and kept trying to buck the fence to get back into her pasture! I drove to the farmhouse, no answer at the door. I tried to find the number for animal control, nothing. I called the police department, no answer...but an extension for animal control. I left a message and I have heard nothing! I guess the poor girl got prodded back into her pasture 'cuz I haven't seen her! We saw signs of her grazing in our grass and nibbling on our trees all over the backyard...the grass IS GREENER over here!...lots of rain this week :) :) :)
