- From our family to yours
- Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

This is the story of my life right now...
...that is since swim team (for the older two) started for the summer.
It is our first "competitive" swim team to be on and it is intense. The practices are hard and the meets are L-O-N-G (I mean, crazy long). We are learning how things work as we go along. I have to tell you though, last night was our first swim meet and the kids were great. They swam hard and did their best.
Did they win??? Well, our daughter won first place (in her heat) for the breaststroke. Pretty good for her first time out in a meet. Our son...well, let's just say that he had to compete against the high school boy (which we hired to help us coach our kids on diving and flip turns) a few lanes down from where he was. (and believe me, those boys have been on the swim team for years and boy, can they swim) He had a great attitude about it though and I was so proud of him.
So, tonight we'll grab our suits for the umpteenth time and head to the pool, come home eat dinner and go to sleep.
