So.. It has been a month...

Well given I have not posted in a month, you probably have guessed that life is BUSY!! There is so much to write about, I feel slightly overwhelmed.

We just finished two-a-days and are headed to our first tournament this weekend. We have faced a lot of adversity as a team up to this point this season, but the girls have responded well. God has granted them with a peace and go get 'em attitude despite it all. They are a unique group, and I covet any and all prayers you all will lift up for our season, injuries, and health (spiritual and physical) of our players.

Summer Olympics Rocked!! Jason and I watched all that we could when we got home late from work every night, but what we say was captivating. It never ceases to amaze me the talent, the perseverance, determination, and dedication any Olympic athlete must put forth to even be where they are. I agree with you Rox that Phelps is a freak of nature, but most of them are! He is just the King Freak of them all:)

Jamie's due date is getting so close!! Josiah will be here before we know it. We are all so excited and she is the cutest prego ever! Yeah for the miracle of babies! Praise God.

Jason and I are doing well. Nothing new to report, but we are trying to really get disciplined in workouts again if you want to lift that up for us!! It is a crazy time of year for me with work and grad school. I know many people do it, and I will be fine, but our travel schedule makes it rough with consistent workouts and getting it all done!

I miss my family. I do not like not being near my sis during this time. It is just hard. Also, I miss my mom! My travel schedule does not give her a great weekend to come visit me before it is close for Josiah to enter the world. It might be awhile:(!! It think mom and dad might come visit the team and I in San Antonio in a few weekends though!!!

That is all for now!

Fun Weekend!!

This past weekend, as I am sure most of you have already read on Jamie or Kayla's blog, was a blast! The two events of the weekend were a baby shower for Josiah (or Jamie and Jay:)) and Bethany's lingerie shower! We had such a good time. The shower Gaynor and all the other hostesses threw for Jamie was so special and sweet. They went all out in surfer theme as noted in the following pics....

The shower was precious. Jamie, Jay, and Josiah were abundantly blessed by gifts and love from so many gracious people. We had the chance to pray over Jamie and Jen blessed her with sweet words of edification and words of wisdom. What a day!

Jamie and I before the shower, what a stunning pregnant lady!!

I saw my college roomies all at the shower. Here is a pic of three of us, Wendi had not made it yet! (Shout out to you Wen for your new niece! She is darling!)

Then that evening we headed out to Betho's shower! It was a blast. All the women in the family minus Shelley were there, plus many friends. We had such a good time. Kayla you hosted a great shower for your sis! Here are a few pics of our pajama party shower...

Betho and Aunt Vicki.. (I would have posted more candid pics but my camera does not have many)

Another event of the weekend was my mom, sister, and I all went out to see Anna Kate (goes by Kate), my cousins newborn little girl. She was the most delicate and beautiful little baby! It was so exciting seeing her and made us realize just how soon it is going to be that we are going to have a little one. Josiah is just around the corner!

On Sunday, my parents and I went out to help Jamie and Jay get the nursery all put together. Bedding, clothes washed, etc.. It looked so adorable, but I did not take any pics. After I had said bye to Jamie and headed out I realized that was the last time I would see her before she delivered her sweet baby boy! It was so sad. I know watching her with him in her arms will be a blessing and dear, but there is something about watching and spending time with your sister during pregnancy. I am going to miss that sipper! Too bad we could not of had more of it. I love you.

Well enjoy the pics, that is all I have for now! Jason and I are headed for a relaxing weekend with friends.
