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!
