Just a mere two hours after returning from our vacation, MK and I hit the ground running in that thing called "reality." Relaxing was a thing of the past and we were out for an evening with her Girl Scout friends.
Tuesday was a big day for two of our peeps - Pryce and MK. With C out with his broken collar bone/shoulder, we have Pryce and MK to swim their part for our summer swim league.
What a difference two years makes! This is MK's third year of swim team. She is 6. The first year she was so capable of swimming the events yet she was mortified that people were cheering her on....it scared our little girl and she cried many tears that year.
Last year she cried the very first meet after her very first event. Again, too much yelling. This year, though, this year is her year. She is on full force and loving every.single.minute.
She dives in and she is finished before you can blink your eyes. She is the girl to beat!
And P is holding his own. Poor P, he is the youngest one in his age group so this year is a bit more than he is used to. No fear, he is hanging in there!
Wednesday was a very exciting day for our family on the adoption front. We got the email that our homestudy had been officially approved and was in the mail! Yahoo!
During our quest for Maddox, we always celebrated each little victory with dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants, The Garlic Clove. For Mary-Gentry, we believe our celebratory gatherings will be held at our favorite dessert location, Brusters! yummo!
(Note: Taking pictures with our boys is a thing of the past. They LOVE to be silly in front of the camera OR they run from the camera! Either way, photographing them, even during a simple little moment, is beyond doable!)
