Snapshots of Us {001 - 012/365}

These are the Snapshots of our everyday life for 2018. Some of the pictures will be duplicates if you follow us on Instagram, but most will not be. I hope to post our pictures weekly on Friday evenings, stay tuned...




001 ~ My new sign from @kdmaedesigns is the perfect addition to our #classroom ! We hit the ground running today with only a few first day back hiccups. Nothing that a little #grace can’t handle. 


002 ~ The snow has begun. 


003 ~ TEN inches of snow for these cuties! 





004 ~ My #littlegymnast , @mckenzieflipstoo qualified for her Level 4 STATE meet today 🎉 she had a great meet with only a minor hiccup on vault. She’s ready for the next meet already! Bars ~ 9.250 (5th T), Beam ~ 9.200 (4th), Floor ~ 9.050 (8th T) , Vault ~6.500 (13th), 34.00 All-Around (8th).
Meanwhile, @mikaylaflips is doing her thing in San Antonio! Last night she qualified for the Fiesta Jam Finals for #vault She competes in the finals tonight. She placed 1st on vault with a 9.45, Bars ~ 8.00 (6th), Beam ~ *scratched* , and Floor ~ 9.100 (3rd), 26.55 All-Around (9th) 

005 ~ Birthday wishes 


006 ~ Snow has blanketed our town for nearly a week now and that means a total shut down of the city and public/private schools because the neighborhood roads do not get plowed. In turn, gymnastics training gets switched around to accommodate being in the gym while the roads are not as frozen.

Normally Mikayla takes her @spanishacademy lessons in the early afternoon on Tuesdays before leaving for evening training, but last night I made the switch-er-roo so she could get her lessons done before leaving for morning training. While we didn’t get lessons with her beloved Nora, her teacher this morning, Mayra, was just as fabulous! 


Switching classes was super easy too! I just logged onto the website under her account and rescheduled her current time for one that better worked for us this morning. She only missed the first 30 minutes of morning training but she got her lessons in because #schoolcomesfirst ! 


007 ~ A little reading aloud before practice. I used to love to read Frog and Toad and now five of my six kids have too 😁 


008 ~ Rainbow colors makes diagramming sentences more fun! 


009 ~ 45K in 17 months! Guess I drive a lot 🚗🚦😁


010 ~ Algebra 1, Grammar 5, and a little Reading Eggs for edutainment for the preschooler. Micah loves to sing along with the videos.


011 ~ Talking with his Daddy. 



012 ~ Woohoo, Micah is learning to write his name and his “M’s” are looking good!
