Rain, American Idol and Deadliest Catch

Well, it's been storming here since yesterday... I think I'm the only person NOT complaining! I love the rain and storms, just hate the way people around here drive in it!! Maybe this will help pull us out of the drought a little bit!

I'm very excited, another new episode of Deadliest Catch tonight!! I wish the shows were longer than an hour but I'll take what I can get!! Last week made me get teary so I hope I don't so emotional tonight!!

Also excited that right before DC, is a new American Idol... I don't usually get that into AI but there's a couple I really like this season so I've been watching it... down to the bottom 5!!

That's all I've got for today... been boring!! LOL

Please forgive me!!

Ok, I know it's been a while... slap me on the wrist!! I've just been so busy and tired lately but let me catch you up on life....
MacKenzie had tryouts at our All Star gym and did really good!! She made a Junior Level 3 team! For those that don't know what the levels mean... Level 3 is where they do back tucks, whereas Level 2 can only do backhandsprings. Here's a couple pictures of her in tryouts:
This was her showing her heel stretch, which she does as a flyer:

And this is her doing her back tuck (sorry it's a little blurry):

Mekhi has been doing so awesome in soccer this season, this kid is so fast and so competitive! I don't think he's scored under 7 goals in a game yet!! We just found out last week that he's going to be old enough for football in the fall so he's going to LOVE that!! Here's a few soccer pics for your viewing pleasure:

MacKenzie recently tried out for the talent show at school to play her violin. She's very excited and we should find out next week if she made it! She's gotten really into playing, she watching videos on youtube then composes her own songs and records them on her phone! Her teacher has gone on and on about how naturally gifted she is! Here's a picture I took of her practicing:

On the entertainment front, I'm really excited that Deadliest Catch is back!! There's been two new episodes so far and it seems this may be the most exciting season yet!! My mom and I were involved with a large group on the Northwestern forum in pitching in some money and sending the crew boot warmers, we're really hoping they show they guys opening them during this season!!

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment... I'll write more frequently from now on, I promise!!
