This was Alyssa's first high school dance. It was a special time because when got to experience that with her sister Rachael. Alyssa went with a very cute boy and it was a long day because our sweethearts dance is always the day of our State Swim meet. She looked very cute in her bright pink dress, but go figure I would have much rather seen there faces for the photo. I hope I am a fly on the wall when she looks back at this layout in several years to hear her say "OHHHHH Yuck" what were we thinking. What can I say I love teenagers and how everything is so exciting to them and nothing else in the world is important.

Going to Cinderella's castle each time we go to Magic Kingdom is always a must do on Lauren's list. We usually eat lunch in the castle. In Lauren's eyes it's a dream come true and at that very moment nothing else in the world matters to her. It's fun to see her so happy.

"It's Not the Size of Dog in the Fight...but the Size of Fight in the Dog"

That quote says it all. Alyssa did just that this week at "Regionals". She set her goals and when it came time to perform she had lots of FIGHT in her. She finished all of her individual events in first place. We were so very proud of her. It's a moment that every parent needs to experience.

With that finish she has qualified for the state team and will swim again this upcoming weekend. So wish us all luck and keep us in your thoughts. It's a very exciting time but very intense. I know my heart will skip many beats before the meet is over. I think I almost get as much of a workout in the stands with all my screaming, squirming and jumping up and down.
