Sloane's swim meet ~ Jeffrey



Sloane did very, very well at her championship swim meet.  She took a ribbon in every event and placed no lower than third in all her personal events.  Not to mention, she earned a personal record with every event.  Yay, Sloane!  We were so glad to have Papa and Grandma join us.  *cell phone photo

costume for drag day

gratitude
a good practice ~ Sloane
Lola and her willingness to sew for me ~ Relyn
biography of Napoleon ~ Jeffrey



Sloane won first place in her swim team drag day contest.  You wear a costume that drags at the water and slows you down.  Then, when you take it off, you fly through the water.  The Nixa swim team does this every year before their championship meet.
