This weekend was a whirl-wind, filled with parties, baseball playoffs, swim meets and volunteering "opportunities."
The kids survivied . . . barely.
The parents survivied . . . barely.
But looking past the craziness, it sure was fun!
A weekend filled with cheering for our kids, getting to know our community better, and celebrating with friends.
Noah loves playing first base! As a lefty, it is a great position for him.
I love this shot of Davis. He did not know that I was taking it. To me, it really shows what swimming is about. It can be a lonely sport. I saw a lot of kids in tears this weekend, including my own. Competitive swimming involves such focus and determination, even at the young age of nine.
Getting ready for the next event.
And such a large pool.
Eliza and Vivian were both real troppers as they were carted around to their big brothers' activities. Eliza's tears came when she was hit in the cheekbone by a baseball. Although you would assume this happened at the baseball game, it actually happened at the swim meet. That's just the way our family rolls. :)
We went out to "fro-yo" after the swim meet was over. I just love how all the kids are lined up in a row from oldest to youngest. There was not much talking going on here, just zoned out kids eating yogurt and watching the TV.
Finally, Miss Vivian. I just love her expression in this one. Enjoying some cake at a graduation celebration.
