touch-a-truck 2011

our city does the coolest thing every year.  every september they provide all kinds of trucks, tractors, ambulances, race cars, helicopters, etc. for the kids to climb on/in.  my little people get a big kick out of it.  everyone is so friendly, too!  william got to use the controls by himself and move some dirt on several different front loaders.  he was giddy!!  wes and reed would have stayed all day!

until next year...

this past weekend, we celebrated a "huge" win over la tech.  huge.  yeah, if you saw that know what i'm talking about.  i vote to never play them again.  just my two cents.

anyway...we left reed at home and just took the other two with us this game.  they had a ball.  and we got to walk through the new basketball practice facility, therefore...i had a ball!  :)

go dawgs!

swim team started a few weeks ago.  i took my camera to one of the first practices before they put the bubble over the pool.  it becomes a dark, cave-like place once that bubble goes up, so i prefer the sunshiney pictures!!!

this year, our whole neighborhood is in the same group!

getting warmed up on the kickboard!





getting focused...

working on breathing correctly...

i've never been able to stick with the sports that don't involve a ball.  (you should see my cheerleading/gymnastic abilities.)  hopefully, i didn't pass that gene on to my kids.  swim, william, swim!!

i finally got to go.

last weekend, we made a quick trip to jackson for honey's birthday.  tropical storm lee made sure we stayed indoors the entire time.  that nixed the golf that chase had planned with his dad, but it gave william and wes the perfect opportunity to take me to the mississippi children's museum while reed slept one afternoon.  i say that they took me because they've been four or five times before.  this was my first time!  and they made sure to show me around and point out their favorites.  

way to go, mississippi! it seems like the media never has many good things to say about us, but this place is something we really can be proud of!  my little people are looking forward to taking me for my second visit.  and i'm hoping that the velcro wall will be open that time....maybe they'll need an adult to try it out!
