Ready for a Relay!

Grandpa, since I couldn't come to practice this week, I thought I better send some photos to let you know I am ready to swim in the relay with Kenton and the other guys! I have been working on my starts, turns and even pumping some iron. Unfortunately, I couldn't go to Prim Rose to have my Mohawk done, so mommy and daddy had to do it. Keely contributed some slobber! I love you tons and Good Luck tomorrow Streaks!

I don't think my trunks will help me streamline??? They are a little large.

Working on my backstroke.

Good shot of the MOHAWK!

Clayton is Soooo Proud of Grandpa and the Streaks!

Nana, Grandpa and Clayton
We were so excited to take Clayton to his first swim meet this weekend. As many of you know, my parents are retiring this year. This will also be my dad's last year coaching. We are so proud of him. It was a great meet to go to, and Clayton loved looking at the water and the guys swimming. Galesburg won the meet, making it 10 times that my dad has had a team win the conference! Clayton was a little disappointed that when Grandpa got pushed in the water, he didn't have any of his bath toys with him so they could play! They also honored my dad at the meet during one of the breaks. All the swimmers lined up to make a tunnel and they called my parents up. Clayton got to go with them through the tunnel. You can see in the picture above that Clayton is listening intently while the other coach talks about my dad! Way to go Streaks, and Good Luck next week at Sectionals Grandpa!

Clayton's 9 Month Photo Shoot

Yippee, I got to work early this morning and saw that Terri had posted Clayton's 9 month photo shoot! Great pictures as usual! The link is below. There should be an option on the right hand side once you are on the website that says Clayton 9 Months. Pick that. You will need to put your email address and then the password is Clayton. Enjoy!

Nana's Birthday!

Nana and Clayton celebrating Nana's Birthday

We were lucky to have Nana come to St. Louis to celebrate her birthday last weekend. Of course Grandpa, Aunt Ellie, Aunt Anna and Uncle David came too! We had a great time with everyone. The weekends go by way to fast, but we are so excited that in a couple of months, Nana and Grandpa will be retired and can come any time they want! Happy Birthday Nana, we love you!

Ok, My son is sooooooooo Adorable!

Terri, the photographer we use, was kind enough to share this picture so I could put it on the blog. I LOVE this picture of the little guy. This is totally him, with the big eyes and eyebrows up. I can't wait to see all the other pictures she took for his 9 month shoot.
