Gymnastics 2013

At school, Gracie is taking gymnastics through Tumbling Tides.  She had an end of the year program on Wednesday and she was remarkable!  It was a vast difference between this year and last.  Gracie was confident in what she could do and amazed me with her courage.  Last year she was afraid to do a front roll, but this year, she even flipped over the high bar!  Great job sweetie!

Levi's Baptism

We had a beautiful baptism service on Mother's Day for Levi at St. Mark.  Michael Miller did a great job of illustrating why we baptize our babies and how they confirm their faith in later years.  Levi and Gracie (and Blake) were perfect angels while we were up there.  
I had my eyes closed for the actual baptizing but I am sure it was perfect.  As we give our son to the Lord, I pray daily that, even though I know he will stray from time to time, that he always comes back to Jesus.

Levi could not believe what just happened but he didn't cry.  And yes, he is wearing an outfit with whales.  His cute outfit to match Gracie's was too small.  It was like trying to stuff an elephant into a mouse hole.  He is a big boy. 

Since it was Mother's Day, I also got some pretty flowers from my big girl.  (That she quickly took back and declared them to be her flowers)

St. Jude Trike a Thon

Gracie participated in the St. Jude Trike a Thon at her school.  She loved decorating her bike and showing off her helmet.  
Gracie and Blake did a patriotic theme for her bike.  It even involved red and blue twinkle lights.

The mass start

Sydney was a fast little rider.  She will drop her training wheels this summer.
