Sorry about your keepsakes, Krista....darnit! This is weird though. I have this weird obsession with balls that bounce perfectly. I mean if I am in the Toy Dept. and see a ball, I have to pick it up to see how it bounces. If it bounces "perfectly" I have to fight the urge to buy it! There was a perfect bouncing 4" ball I bounced during Christmas. I think I absolutely HAVE TO go back to Academy and buy it! I never bounced a ball that was THAT perfect!
