The Girl's First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for the girls! They were excited and nervous but they all had a good day. I'm trying to figure out when Alex got so "grown-up" looking. ????
Tomorrow is Nick's first day back at "school" too. I had better go and get his bag ready. The mornings are so crazy and I'm sure the girls won't pop out of bed tomorrow like they did today!

The Ass Whisperer!

Today Chris competed in an all mule rodeo. Chris has been breaking and training mules for the past 3 years. He was so excited and a bit nervous too. He really wanted to do well. He definitely did well. He came home with 7 belt buckles (1st place) and a new saddle which was the overall winner of the rodeo. Here he is with the kids showing off his winnings! We are so proud of him!

Nick loves, loves to swim. In fact, Nick can almost swim by himself. I know that sounds crazy but he has figured out how to move his arms and kick his legs. He can now swim about 3 feet by himself. Very strange indeed!
I'm proud of my 2 boys!

Friday Nick had a cardiologist appointment. I was really hoping things with his heart would be improving. Things aren't bad with his heart but it is "the same". We are still in the "wait and watch" mode. So, not necessarily bad news but I really was hoping for a bit of improvement. On a good note his heart is not enlarged and his pressures are great. Both good things. Nick doesn't have to return to the cardiologist for 6 months.

Here is a picture of Nick playing in his sister's room. I'm sure he was getting into their stuff and annoying them. He really likes to do that.
I found this random picture of Alex's eye on my camera. I have no clue how she made it this color or why she even took it. ????
The last few months we have been so busy travelling that my kitchen became a "dumping" ground. I never had time to clean it until recently. I stayed up late, late one night because I could not stand it any longer. I took a picture of the kitchen because it was so great to see it completely clean! Fortunately, since we haven't been travelling as much it has actually stayed clean. Always a good feeling!
Summer is winding down and we are getting ready to start school in 2 weeks! WooHoo!!!! I can't wait.
