So proud of our hometown boy!


Spring is here! Although today it is rainy and pretty cold. It's still spring and I love it! Everything is in bloom and baseball season has started!
Speaking of BASEBALL! ...
Our precious friends "The Craigs" have a son named Allen. He has grown up with Travis and his mom Kim is in our moms dinner group. The whole family is just precious! Their daughter Kendall is an absolute doll with the sweetest personality ever! She restores your faith in teenagers and is the kind of young lady every mom prays for her boys to someday marry !  Allen has been playing baseball since he was a young boy and has worked at it tirelessly with his whole heart. All the ups and downs that go with professional sports, but he kept at it .  And it has paid off!!! He just got picked up by the St Louis Cardinals! When  Steve and I watched him on opening day we almost burst with pride! We are so happy for their amazing family and have overnight become Huge Cardinals fans!  We cant even begin to imagine how they must feel because we are beside ourselves with joy !  Watch for #8 and expect to see big things from him this season!  And Allen, I hope you can hear us all cheering for you with all our hearts.....

I totally agree with everything you have to say here! I am so proud of him and his family for their support of him. It is so amazing to watch someone who you saw play back in Little league play in the Big leagues!

And I may be biased, but I think you are dead on about Kendal too!

That is amazing...and now I will be a Cardinals fan. Well, right after the Dodgers anyway. The last time I saw Kendall was waiting for the kids at the pathway from the elementary school with Kim~! Wow, a teenager. I will be watching #8 for sure!!
