There is this fun group Facebook that we follow called "napa rocks". People paint rocks and hide them around town for other people to find. It is a super cute idea and it gets the kids and adults out of the house and doing fun things together.

We have tried for some time to find a niche for Ryann. Ryann is amazing. She is a thinker- she ponders and doesn't react quickly. She is helpful and tries to find better ways to do things. She has her own timeline and somehow makes it all work during the chaos of our home and family.
However, She isn't super self motivated, she isn't very coordinated, didn't have fun at softball, lives in her own little bubble, didn't want to do soccer--- but along came the swim team--- and we thought we would try it out. She is getting better and better each day and she doesn't ever complain about it!!! It helps she swims with some cute boys I am sure. But she also is able to do things at her own pace. Hopefully she continues to like it- but if she doesn't then there is always basketball- right?
Here we are trying on swim caps.
I feel like school started forever ago! I guess time sure does fly bye. It is harder to find time to blog now that I am not pumping each night at work. But either way- here are a couple pictures of my big girls starting school. Cara is second grade and Ryann is fourth grade.

Our family didn't watch a lot of okympics because we don't have cable- but the girls saw enough gymnastics to know you need to be amazing to win the gold.
I had a crazy work schedule this year, but a bunch of friends and I participated in the Napa relay for life to raise money for cancer research. I only got to spend an hour and a half there but it was so much fun. Next year I am totally bringing the whole family.
About a month ago Devyn and I took the kids to 6 flags. It was hot and the kids got tired quick, but we had a blast for those 3+ hours. I have season passes and we get people in free so thankfully we didn't have to stay all day to make it worth it.

Shelby's new favorite place to hang out is in this silly little chair Ryann got from her teacher at the end of the school year last year. She loves it because she can climb up it herself. It also makes it easier for my monthly picture!

This little girl is too much to handle. Her birthday party was a blast. Flamingo themed and pink and gold everything.
We love our Shelby shelbs.

We picked out special flowers for grandma great's birthday a couple weeks ago.
But we are also thankful every day for her and the amazing life that she lived. I am so happy to know that families can be together forever. What a sweet and simple truth.
