Hidden Talents

Today was the gym competition at the kid's school. This means gymnastics and they have class, group and solo competitions. Apparantly Jackson signed up a while ago and then forgot about it. They called his name up today and he had nothing - no music, no routine - nothing. He just put in a cd someone else brought and made up his routine as he went. Somehow he then walked away with the bronze medal. A girl got the gold, then his friend Gabriel won silver and he won the bronze. Out of the entire year 6 - about 30 kids - and he wins bronze? Apparantly I need to get this kid signed up for gymnastics because we might have another Peter Vidmar on our hands. HAHA.

Loved reading your blog. How fun to live in England like you have. We live in Az. during the winters and I know you will love living there when you move. Our 4 daughters were raised in Mesa during the 80's and they speak of it with reverence! What city are you moving too. Did you decide on the big house/small lot or the smaller house/big lot?

Mary Ann - we ended up going a totally different way - moving out of town buying a 1/4 of an acre and we're building - it is about 3000 sq feet - so we're getting it all!
