Swim Team

 We had another great summer of swim team.  This was Oliver's last year as a kickboarder.  He also swam freestyle and one very nerve wracking backstroke where he barely made it across the pool. 

 Penelope was a great baby at all the meets.  Such a happy girl. 

 Madeline swam every stroke, even butterfly.  It certainly wasn't her favorite though.  Her favorites were freestyle and breaststroke.  And she ended up swimming both in the invitationals. 

 Coaches Allison and April were so sweet and encouraging to our kids. 
 Oliver doing "Eenie, Meenie, Minie Mo" to choose which foot to start with. 
 I guess the right foot won. 

It was a crazy busy swim season.  But, it was fun.

Kindergarten Graduation

This past June, Oliver graduated from Kindergarten.  We had a ceremony with some other graduates from our homeschool group.  It was quite the feat to get him into his button up shirt and tie.  There isn't much he hates more.  But, I sure wish he liked to wear them more often.  Look how handsome he is!!

He was having a very important meeting before the ceremony. 

Oliver and his good friend, Anna.

All the crazies!!

Madeline with her friends, Faith and Paige, at the reception. 
And we get to do this again in June with Lucy!
