Looking out the kitchen window this morning,
I realized that the new leaves have started
growing but the old ones (along with the berries)
are still hanging on!
Hopefully the rain will encourage the old leaves
to make way for all of the new ones and soon
our tree will be all green again.
Wow! Zachary never ceases to amaze me!
He is home from his tryouts in Balgonie
and hasn't had quite enough
lacrosse for one weekend.
Unfortunately he didn't make the team
but I'm happy to see that his spirits
haven't been crushed.
We're so proud of him!
Ashley & Miss Amie
after Ashley got Platinum for her
tap solo this afternoon
Ashley & Jenna
with their platinum medals
and a bucket of sour
cherries for the
Miss Ashley's rose with both of her
medals from Biggar this weekend.
Great dancing Ashley!
This boy makes me so proud!
He always gives it his all.
I couldn't be happier for him!
What a day!
Zach had 4 hours worth of
Storm tryouts today.
The photos aren't really good
because of the plexiglass but still worth posting today.
He also found out that he made it to the final tryouts
Way to go Zach!!
This girl warms my heart!
She is an amazing dancer and an even
more amazing daughter!
She was just waiting for her turn on stage
and it was a perfect time for a photo!
Congratulations on a great dance competition Ashley!
Her tap group added a Bronze to
their medals today.
Great work with some tough competition!
Ashley and her wonderful tap teacher
after she won Gold for her solo
Way to go Ashley!
Zach, Ashley and I went out for lunch
after Ashley was done dancing.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of them
under the sign!
It's so nice to see that Zach and Ashley
still enjoy doing things together.
So what if Zach was trying to
eat the bubbles?
I decided that since it's still raining today that I should
bake more cookies! Yesterday I baked double chocolate chip
cookies and today I decided on oatmeal chocolate chip.
Maybe tomorrow I'll make oatmeal raisin!!
The kids (and Steve!) are going to be so happy!
I couldn't resist posting both of these photos today!
We went to the park and my son (with friends) showed up to go on
the ramps with their bikes. Once he realized that I was taking pictures,
he was out of there!
I'm not too sure what exactly my daughter was pondering at this moment but
it sure made a great picture!
These are the days they will surely remember!
