Grandparents' day Sub

I was chosen as a special friend to my niece while her Grandparents were on vacation. It was such a treat. The entire school day was dedicated to grandparents coming to different classes throughout the day, it was quite the ordeal.

My nieces teacher had a nice touch where the kids were to sing a song to us. It turned out to be a beautiful yet emotional song. As soon as it started, I thought I was going to have trouble keeping it together. It's a Bette Middler type song. Love Will Build a Bridge

As you'll see we didn't make it though the whole song. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought so.

First movie attempt...no bells...no whistles

As embarrassing as this is, it's a cute little video I made today.


At the beginning there are a few snapshots that will display with no sound. At the end, there is this woman talking ridiculous baby talk. You may want to mute your sound.

Bad Ike!


This has been my home away from home for the last 3 years. It's the new Wilson's complex that is Wilson's South, MAC soccor indoor and outdoor fields, the MAC pool and FIT (Females in Training) that I have come to love since I quit work. I spend at least 3 mornings a week hear and in the summer more time here than at my house.

Bad Ike!

It was hard to see it flood and hope they rebuild. I know Wilson's South isn't in jepordy, but FIT was housed in the old Club Woodrail and was older and quieter than the new facey gym and I loved it that way. Since it is only women, there is a chance they'd tell us to use the new facility with all it's pretty paint, state of the art equipment, beautily views and co-ed crowding. Who knows if it's worth insuring again.

I slept through most of the rain and it was on the way to church Sunday morning that I discovered it. I would have never guessed we got that much rain.

Swim Team Catch Up

Mac Sharks - Swiming 2008




The boys had a great season this year. JP was awarded "Most Improved Swimmer" this year and LJ had his first experience competing. It's amazing how different two little boys with the same interests can be. There are 4 primary strokes in swimming and they each have different favorites, because their little bodies work differently. JP is primarily a breast stroke and back stroke swimmer, and LJ is butterfly and free.

JP plays the part as a pro when he's getting ready to dive in.


Here is a picture where LJ is a little late on the go. He'll learn more next year as to how to dive head first. :-)


Here are some other cute pictures.
