Reality Check

Tuesday, the 17th, we dove right back in to real life and it was a bit of a rude awakening! Instantly life was busy again and even now, nearly 3 weeks at home, I don't think I have quite accepted that this is real life :-).

Early Morning Seminary for Mike...Check
Swim Practice Shuttling...Check
Homework (especially for Ella who is just now caught up 2 weeks since coming home)...Check

On Saturday, the 21st, Addie had a little Katy Aquatics swim meet and did great, especially considering we had just gotten back from vacation. Since Ella missed her January meet her coach let her swim the 50 backstroke and she and Addie were actually in the same heat haha!

Ella was begging for one and I had to walk away before crying or giving in haha!)
