Hi Tuesday!

I am trying to savor Tuesday right now b/c we are supposed to get SNOW tomorrow! I knew as soon as I changed my blog over to a more springy look this would happen, LOL! Can you believe a winter storm warning from tonight until Thursday morning???

Anywho....how's your week going? I have been busy working and getting ready for a scrappy weekend!!! Can't wait to spend the weekend with my girls and hanging out. I figured I should at least vacuum for them ;) OH! Owen has his swimming championships, too. His first year swimming and he qualified for two events.

He was SO cute at last week's meet. He was SO excited to swim breaststroke that he swam it a race early! Brian & I are like, "what stroke his he swimming"??? LOL! The guy next to us was like, "who cares...he's winning"! He got 2nd place in his freestyle heat swimming breaststroke. Gosh, I love that kid.

I think we should celebrate with some photos, don't you?

Ready?
Swimmers....Take Your Mark....


GO GO GO!

I love this action shot!



I love this one (courtesy of Amber) BREATHE, LOL! BREATHE! Too, cute.



And another one from Amber (owen's aunt amber...proudest auntie in the whole world, yelling and screaming at him up and down the lane just like our dad did ;)



Have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah for Owen!! How cool that he has done so well with swimming, and in his very first year, too. My daughter joined our neighborhood summer swim team for a couple of years, but always came in last. Once she got old enough to realize that, she wanted to stop. ;)
How fun you get to have a scrappy weekend. Hope you all have a wonderful time.
