Augusta Meet

Hayden's Patriot Classic

Another weekend down and another gymnastics meet done. When will it all end? LOL just kidding.

Hannah continues to improve each meet so that is all we could ask for.

It was a fun weekend, we headed to Augusta Friday night after dropping Diva of to stay with Nana and NanEizabeth at the farm. We got in about 10:45 and crashed. We had to be at the
gym by 8:00 and lo and behold, it was one of the few places my Garmin couldn't find. It got us to the road but the location was just to new. I realise the videos may seem to get a little repetitive, (You have no idea) but everyone likes them so here they are.





Papa Jim was able to make it. Grandma Joyce was attending a Softball game for one of her granddaughters in of all places, Savannah.

After the meet we had lunch and then headed home to get Diva and rest for a bit.

They're Home!!

I'm sorry that this video is a little dark because of the lighting. This was one of the late nights for JoAnna and the kids (8:30pm arrival time). I was home and decided to film the chaos from when the garage door is opened until everyone actually comes in.

Design Change

As you can see we have made some design changes to the site. I hope everyone likes the changes and has enjoyed the site. As some may be able to tell I am loving it. It is so much fun. I keep finding new things to add and how to change stuff around. I went nuts when I figured out how to do videos and slide shows. The hardest part is not sending out a notice everyday that I have tweaked something.
Let me know what you think about the site.

Ultimate Classic

Hannah had a meet again this weekend in Duluth, GA. She did great and improved greatly. Patrick and I didn't attend so we don't have video tape yet.

Another parent taped her but we haven't gotten it.

Hannah got 7th place on Beam out of 14 girls.

Her overall score was 33.05 which is up about 3 points so she is showing steady improvement.


Here are some clips of Patrick at practice. He is now a 2nd Degree Brown Belt. His next testing is for Red Belt which there are two levels of. Then he will go to recomended Black Belt and then Black Belt. So only 3 more levels.

Rails to Trails

Hannah was away at a meet this weekend so Patrick and Eric had the weekend to play. Patrick had practice so they got that done and then went out towards Tybee Island to the Rails to Trails park.

We rode about 5 miles on one of the trails. It was a lot of fun. There is marsh on both sides so you ride out into the middle of nowhere. No roads just the wind coming off the river.

Playing in the yard.

Patrick and Diva spent some play time in the yard while the weather had cooled off a bit. We have had some nice days where there has been a breeze and cooled down enough to be enjoyable.

The Room is Done!!!

Here are some rough photos of the move in process. We still have some organizing and straighting up to do but we like the change. Now we can hang stuff on the walls.

Family Photos

On our recent trip to California, my sister Elisabeth scanned some old photos that were found so that we could all have a copy. Thank you Elisabeth!! Well, I was moving some files and cleaning up the hard drives for a system reformat and decided to post them.

I will get some more pictures and videos up as soon as possible. I need to get some of Patrick so that will be my mission.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures!!
