Pictures of us

 Max goes to a birthday party on his birthday and wants to be part of it, because after all- it is his real birthday!  Dad kept him in check most of the time.

 Sam's last track meet.  They won 1st for their 4x400- they had never been beaten.  He also got 2nd in long jump- which is crazy, considering how short he is compared to all the other jumpers.  He got his only second in the 800.  He raced against a guy he had raced before.  The guy wanted to try to get him to pass him early, so he slowed down more and more.  Sam had been instructed not to pass him until the last 100, so he stayed behind.  The other guy won by a half a foot, but their times were 20 seconds slower than they had ever been.  Very annoying race!
 Last meet!!
 Party time for middle school track- We love the playground - the kids did not love the playground after they got caught jumping the fence to get to it.  Besides getting yelled at twice, they had to do extra workouts.  We actually had one girl turn blue, eyes roll back in her head and her heartbeat drop while they were doing their I love the Playground workout. Freaked me out.  Luckily, we had 3 nurses there that day.
 Blue icing on everyone!
Some of the coaches 
 Max finally gets to celebrate turning 9!  We had a spy party.  They each chose a name based on their favorite color and favorite animal.  They did training around the park and then did a hunt for the weapon that Goldeneye had- Joseph informed me that Goldeneye was the weapon and then he told me what the company really was called, but I can't remember anymore.  Guess I just don't know my 007 as well as my 11 year old.
 Brother Naylor and Max's favorite friend Sir Joe- as Max calls him.  (His real name is Serjio and he is from Portugal.)

The weapon, found and ready to destroy!
 Hiking in the Black Forest with our friends the Hewins
 Longest waterfall in Germany

 Max actually did the high adventure ropes course.  I was so proud of him!
 Joe up there.  Sam and Kyndall were the only ones that could go on the highest one, but Joe did the next highest.
 They are all so cute!  We betrothed Sam and Kyndall while they were up in the trees.  They are such good friends and we love their parents, so it seemed like a good idea.

Max's last track meet and party.  I just helped out at every practice, so they treated me like an official coach.  Very sweet!
