First official day of summer! {Our Summer Plans}

Today is the first official day of summer for 2010!!  We have definitely been experiencing hot summer weather for a few weeks now but with the last few weeks having been so crazy for us it's nice to officially kick off our summer today!

Alexis joined the level 4 gymnastics team on June 1st!  She is LOVING it but it is requiring a lot of time.  She practices 11 hours a week.  Plus there is our driving time (35 minutes to and from the gym) 4 days a week.  But she loves it so it is definitely worth it.  Austin joined a pre-tumbling team so there is another night every week that we head off to the gym.  Rylee still cannot do gymnastics because of her elbow that she broke, however, in 3 weeks she will be able to which will require even more time spent at the gym.  Of course, all worth it and we all love it!
