Spring is HERE !!!!!

Wacky Wednesday

Latisha looked awesome in the Figure International. Great Job Girl!!!

The sun is finally out !!!!! but the rain hasn't stopped:(

It was so nice to get to talk to some of you at the Arnold. What a crowded mess, that place has grown to be? There were a few things I wanted to see but couldn't even walk over to the booth, I wanted to get too. We were lucky enough to have our booth close to the bathroom, so it only took 15 minutes to get there instead of 30...

If you ever want to change up your breakfast you can add alittle green dye to your egg whites and have green eggs, like I made for Izabella's Pre-School class last week. They loved the green eggs and ham, dressing Wacky on Wednesday and in their PJ's on Friday. It's great to just have some fun w/ your kids. I took Izabella to her back handspring clinic at gymnastics and the stands were full of parents working on their computers on a SUNDAY. I was so saddened by them not even taking a 1 hour break away from work to watch their kids practice on their back handsprings. What if they were to get hurt or finally do one for the first time and the parent missed it because they had their head plastered to a computer screen? I know when Izabella did hers the first time, she yelled from the floor-"mommy did you see that". She was so proud-even if her coach helped a little:) It was all about me seeing it.

I've read both of Tony Dungy's books and WOW they can make you open your eyes to a few things. You all know, I love the Colt's but I just got alittle more respect for them.He talks about how to be a Great Coach and AWESOME PARENT. I may just hand that book to a mom at gymnastics this evening. Seriously-I know work is important but your kids are MORE important. Ok enough about that, I could go on for hours on this topic. If you want to borrow 1 of his books, let me know. I'd be happy to send it to ya. He has tons of great quotes in there along w/ stories about his success and struggles.

We had our first baby calf born last week too. It's great to see those new babies out in the field kicking and playing.

On Saturday we went to the circus. What a blast. I've never been to one before. Rozalee started to cry anytime the elephants would leave. The girls loved the clowns and crazy gymnasts or whatever they are hanging from ropes and the ceiling. It was a great 2 hour show. I want to know how they keep from breaking their neck as they twirl from a rope?

I have attached some pics from the last week. I have some from the Arnold on my facebook page that girls have sent me. I don't know how to take them from facebook and put on my web-site???

I'm also down another 5 pounds. I didn't get to train w/ Parrillo last week due to me taking care of my Grandma etc. I go see him on Wednesday so I won't be able to walk till Sunday. So at church I'll pray for pain relief:) LOL. I did put myself through a good leg workout on Friday though. Kenny said I got tiny quick-which is a surprise cause I usually get this tiny 5 days from a show not weeks before. I feel awesome.

That is unfortunate about the gymnastics and the parents. I get SO annoyed with parents and their laptops and their cell phones. I mean there is MORE to life than the internet. It gets all over me. Glad you got to see YOUR daughter do her back handspring though. You have your priorities straight!

My husband is a Jr. High coach and he has read the Dungy books and he loves them too. I am thinking about reading them also. I think I would like them.
