Amber is in Chula Vista, California this week training with the 2009 USA National Team. She is on the 2009 Japan Cup Team which will be traveling to Japan to compete on July 28th through Aug. 3. I think these are the correct dates. How exciting is that!!!!
The first picture is Amber's profile picture that is posted on the USA Softball website which you can find here. http://www.usasoftball.com/bios.asp?uid=4901
The second picture is the 2009 National Team with the girls from Lifetime's Diet Tribe. How cool is that!!! Amber is first girl on the left on the bottom row. We have talked to her and she is very tired. She has been living out of her suitcase for 2 1/2 weeks so she will be ready to go home to Chicago tomorrow.
As for other Patton news, Bixby had her second haircut yesterday! She is so stinking cute!!!
I wanted her hair cut shorter because of the hot weather and she looks very skinny and much more like a puppy!! We adore her, she is a wonderful puppy even though she chewed up my favorite Croc sandal. It is pictured in the photo where she is sitting. Oh well, it was time for a new pair of Crocs, ha ha!!! Tim and I are heading to Chicago town this weekend. We are going to take in a Cubs game on Saturday and then on Sunday we will travel to Elgin to watch Amber play in a Susan G. Komen fundraising game against the 18 and under Northern IL Lightning. Ashley has to work so she will be staying home with Bixby. I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July! Donna
