My Little Athletes & Abby is 11!!!!


Here is a picture of Abby and Ben after their first swim meet of the season. Abby won first place in backstroke out of 21 other girls. She also won 3rd place on freestyle against 23 other girls. Ben won 4th place in backstroke at his first meet - competing with boys who are 9-10 years old, because he is about to turn 9 next month. I am very proud of both of them.




Abby turned 11 and got big girls presents - clothes and books. Ben remarked after she opened all of her presents that she got boring presents this year. I told him that is what big girls like to get for presents. I can't believe she will be in Young Women next year.

Laurie Williams?? It's Brooke Bowers (Turner, now). I recently found Cindy through facebook and she led me to your blog. It's been forever. . . Congratulations on your new baby. I can't believe you have an 11 year old. My oldest turns 3 in November. My contact info is on facebook. How fun to find the two of you in the same month two decades later.

Your kids have gone straight from adorable to beautiful/handsome. Maybe we should come live right next door to you.
