First Day back to School

It has been forever since I have posted to my blog.  I might eventually go back and post photos from the past 6 months, but for now, I am going to share some photos from today - the first day of school.  Our 17-year-old daughter is starting her senior year and our 14-year-old son is a freshman.

I took this photo last night during a scrimmage - OUCH - but at least he blocked it.

Sweet B

This post is for GG to see a smile on her granddaughter's face AND to see how tall her grandson has gotten.

Last year around this time, B's high school league water polo team won the girls state championships, but our Sweet B won't be playing this year.  Our daughter has a mild concussion from a blow to the head during her club water polo practice.  It has only been a few days and she is already feeling better, but she needs to give her body time to heal - so no water polo for a while.  

I find it hard to watch my daughter sit and cheer for her team because I know how badly she wants to be in the water.  B is the team captain and she has worked so hard this season so my heart hurts for her on so many levels, but just seeing a smile on her face at least makes me feel a little better.

On a side note, this will be our son's first year playing in the high school state championships tournament so good luck to D and his team.

Celebrating with Ice Cream

Our daughter had a group of friends over to celebrate completing a marathon that they had trained for and completed as a team.  

While our son wasn't a part of the group, he enjoyed the ice cream. We had chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream, brownies, and lots of toppings to enjoy.  I love the colorful cute bowls!

D had just gotten home from a 3 hour water polo practice, so he was hungry.

I found this flower in our backyard.  I'm not sure what it is (maybe an Iris), but I was excited to see a dozen stalks waiting to bloom.
