Celebrating Nana & Poppy's 50th Anniversary

All the cousins came together in Kansas for the celebration of Nana & Poppy's milestone anniversary.  A great time was had! We visited many pools and even drug Poppy and Nana into the water.  We're all so lucky to have each other!


Swim Team Photos

Your fist year on swim team together!  The year was great fun and the photographers shots were perfect & adorable, but I snapped these with my iPhone and love them too.


Mr. Handsome

Oh child. How these eyes and that little freckled nose melt my heart.  I love you so!
You are such an amazing little man.  This summer, I'm having a hard time adjusting to sending you off to school as a first grader... it'll be your first year in full-time school and my heart misses you already!

This summer was full of bike rides, swimming, jumping on the tramp, wandering through the creek in the park, and video games.  Oy.  Your most favorite thing in the world is technology and you would immerse yourself in a game all day, if we'd allow it.  

You are the most loving child.  Everyday you'll call out to me from somewhere far away - just to tell me you love me.  And, you still let me hug on and kiss you any time I wish.  You're just so, so, so special.  I tell you all the time and I absolutely mean it.  You're the best Rylan in the world.



This was your first year on swim team and therefore your first kidnapping.  An annual tradition for our Cherry Knolls Swim Team is the kidnapping of the youth by the older kids.  You'd heard the rumors and knew it could happen at any time...

You popped out of bed and ready for donuts!  Your bed head even earned you an award!


Homestead Swim Meet

So fun to watch you in this swim meet.  You swam on a relay and also in the 25 Free.  Your confidence in the water is growing and you only stopped one time to rest on the lane ropes. Unfortunately, you got disqualified - as they said you touched the bottom when you let go of the rope just a few feet away from the finish! (We didn't see it and are so mad that the officials would make that call on a six year old!)  Your heart was broken - but it was a good learning experience and we are so proud!


First Swim Team Practice

After years of watching your sister swim on the Cherry Knolls Swim Team, it was finally your turn to join in the fun.  Apprehensively, we registered you knowing that you weren't a proficient or confident swimmer.  But, you joined all these other 5 and 6 year olds at exactly the same stage.  There were several who were apprehensive and terribly afraid- but you jumped in with a smile.

We're excited to see what you do during this swim team season.  We're proud already!
