I usually try to post on Tuesday mornings but I wasn't feeling so hot yesterday. We did have a really great weekend.
My sweet parents came into town to see the girls compete at a home gymnastics meet. I use the term compete loosely. Every year the gym has a meet for everyone, team and rec, enrolled at the gym. Since K is taking rec class (what is she not involved in??? that child!) she got to participate too. Then we raced over to the ice rink so L could also skate in her first skating competition. She did a beautiful job but you will never know because I was so captivated that I forgot to take pictures! Can you believe that???
As I stated above, K has a wide variety of interests. I love that my children are involved. It keeps them busy, out of trouble and off the computer and away from the TV. BUT, we do have to work with K to keep her from over doing it. She brought a form home for student council yesterday. I hated that I had to make her choose to not get involved but there is a limit. So...during our conversation I had her write down her current commitments, adding student council and number them in order of importance to her. This is what it looked like (I am NOT kidding)
1. Youth group (love that this is her number one priority!)
2. Soccer (currently practices 4 days a week and plays a game every Saturday morning)
2. Gymnastics rec class
2. School Play (thank goodness the show is next week!)
2. Student Council
She obviously needs to work on her numbering skills! HA! She did decide to not do Student Council. I do have to say, we have had a discussion about this more than once when she decided to try out for the play again. Her response, "Mom, I am getting straight A's in school." How do you argue with that? I don't know about her but I am ready for the summer!
Since we are on the topic of sports maybe it would be a good time to share a layout I did for Challenge Me Happy. We would love for you to join us this week. You could win goodies from My Little Shoebox! We have a color challenge this week, using red, black and white. Perfect IU colors. :) There was no doubt what I was going to scrap. Here is my layout.
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your week!
