Our final week of freedom before school starts.............

This is a horrible picture but I couldn't get my camera to work in this gym where the awards ceremony was so it's all I came away with. :( I still love the look on Morgan's face as she receives her 100 point trophy and is looking up at all the big kids. She was so proud. She really wanted that trophy last year. Way to swim Morgan! We went to San Diego and spent the entire day with Dan's sister and the babes. They are getting so big and FAST! I was exhausted when we got home. :) Hats off to my sister in law for chasing twins all day. We got to be part of their first carousel ride, ahhh so fun. :)

We had to chase Nate down, grab him and hold him while Dan quick snapped a picture. :)They are so fun and cute and animated.
On another note I forgot to mention after 2 and half years Morgan has decided to take a break from swimming (much to her daddy's sadness) and has joined the circus. We have a ONE thing at a time rule in our house and a once you start you have to complete rule so pretty much all season Morgan has been asking to join the trapeze program up here. I told her to pray about it and she could do a trial class and if she had peace about dropping club swimming she could. Well, needless to say the girl knows what she wants because she LOVES it! She is SUPER strong and just grins from ear to ear the entire class. I on the other hand get to sit indoors where it is warm and dry and stress about her falling from the ceiling. ;) I'll keep you posted and let you know when she runs away with the circus.

We snuck in a beach trip last week with some friends as well. The weather was AMAZING and fun was had by all. The little girl to the right is my friends daughter and Ryanne L-O-V-E-S her. She follows her everywhere. These kids are part of our home school group as well. So fun!
We are off to one last fun day up at Forrest Falls for a lake day with our church. Then home to get ready for school tomorrow. I am excited to get started and although by books have not come in yet I think it will be a good day. Wish me luck! :) Be blessed.

Oh my goodness, I wish there had been a trapeze class when I was Morgan's age. I used to dream about flying on the trapeze. I never wanted to be in the circus though - just fly on the trapeze. And she has such grace and form already. How FUN!!!
We have the same rule at our house - one thing at a time and no more than 2 things in a year (since sports only last for a season).

I'll be praying for you this week as you start school with both of them! Did they give their teacher back to school gifts on their first day ;)
