I APPLAUD YOU EMMA FOR PARTICIPATING & SHARING IN THIS WORTHWHILE NOBLE CAUSE.

Congrats Emma and thank you for donating your time. You’re a gem! See you Saturday at the field and bring your A game!

Oh Alex! You got an account here! Thanks!

Evan,
Thanks. Thank you for inviting me Evan. I already got my bag of groceries. Probably will add a couple of stuffs to it.

Forgot to mention that when we went to volunteer with the Dodgers on Tuesday to the Los Angeles Food Bank, the guy giving us a tour told us that there have seen a decline on donated supplies but an increase of needy people.

Congrats to Clayton and to the Dodgers! I think this was a great signing all around. I love that the Dodgers caravan does so much charitible work and it’s wonderful that you participate. Hey, I wish I could join you guys this weekend. I had it on my calendar. I’ve been looking forward to it…but unfortunately I have also been sick since my friend’s funeral so I am staying in this weekend. Have a great time! I’m headed to Dodger stadium at least twice this season, so I will look for you then.

What a great event! The chance to help the community alongside some of your favorite players seems like a great idea (though I suppose it could be a bit distracting, too). :-)

Happy Anniversary to you and your blog, Emma. Keep up the great work!

Kristen,
Let me know when you are at Dodger Stadium. come early for BP!

Sue, Thanks! A little distracting. I had Kershaw infront of me but I think that only motivated me to work the assembly line faster. lol.

Thanks Jane! I ran into another of your books at a library!
