{ Long Ball To Left }

His father is back home with the high school team he coaches and is headed to the state playoffs.
He (youngest) is in Enid, Oklahoma playing in the NJCAA College World Series.
Mom is stuck mentally and physically somewhere in the middle.
She is grateful for live stream and a long ball to left.

{ Obsessed / Possessed...Which is it? }

Here she is at almost 3 months. It started early.
 The constant retrieving. It was so cute in the beginning.
 Everyone marveled at how well she obeyed the sit command
 as she anticipated the next throw.  
Then spring arrived and we moved to the green grass
 with her favorite neon yellow tennis ball.  

To flat out run in a wide open space with ears flopping
 brought her such pride and joy...
as well as her mom

You know the kind of pride I'm talking about.
The kind when your neighbor steps outside and you start bragging,
"She does so well with distractions."

"Especially, birds. I've trained her to ignore those robins!"
(Currently in back yard one street over)

She responded with such disbelief, "And at such an early age!"

"Oh yes" I replied, "She is really something!
I never have to scold her for running off."

"Yep, she won't even look at them."

"She's such a good girl.
 I'm so proud of her at 6 months!"

We love you Gracy girl!

{ Supermoon }

So I waited all week for Saturday, May 5th to arrive since The Weather Channel talked up the Supermoon that was to happen at 10:30 central time. I found it to be no more "Super" than other full moons.  But I am still mesmerized. It is not easy to take pictures of the moon without them appearing to be just a bright light. Here are the details
