Caitlin and her Daddy's hat

Softball Field Dedication Ceremony

The new softball field was played on for the first time on Thursday. There was a ceremony held that dedicated it to Papa. It was named Buddy Collins Memorial Field. It was a dream of Papa'a to be able to have these group of five senior girls to play on a field of their own. That dream is now a reality for them. Papa is smiling I'm sure! Here are some pictures from the day....
View from behind the batter's box....I know, it's kind of obvious, huh??
View from outfield....yes, I know....stating the obvious again!
Then banner that hangs on the outfield fence.
One of the plaques on the columns when you enter the field. There are two columns, and the plaques above and below are on each column.

Each of the light colored stones have a players name and graduation date or position played or year of graduation or nickname. There are also names of the coaches. Great layout!

Fuzzy caterpillar

I went to pick up Caitlin after work Sunday and we were outside with MawMaw and GaGa. I found a caterpillar and wondered what Caitlin would do. So I put it on her arm to crawl. She left it there about 1/4 of a second and then picked it up between her fingers. She kind of rolled it around between her fingers for a few seconds. I was trying to get a picture, as usual. We were all admiring the little caterpillar when Caitlin pulled....HARD....and the caterpillar snapped right in half. Yes, green guts all over her hands! She tried shaking it off but it was stuck. We were laughing so hard at her. GaGa got out his hankie and wiped off her hands. Poor caterpillar. I didn't mean for him to die. Just wanted to see what she thought of it. Guess I'll think twice next time....

Caitlin and the cow

This is our little farm girl. She loves going with GaGa and MawMaw out to see the cows and horses....and, as you can see, she's not the least bit afraid. She was picking up the feed and - one by one - dropping it over the side of the feed trough!
