After another great gymnastics season in January and February, including (but not limited to) 2 more gold medals and winning “Alamo Classic” First Place team… Kelly retired from the sport. She’d been a gymnast for 10 years and was ready for something new.
In early April she tried out for her high school’s JV cheer squad, and made it!!
She is a “flyer,” LOVES it and they love her. But how could they not?!!??!!
Cheer group photo above taken just a week after tryouts.
3 weeks ago we adopted the sweetest 7-year-old terrier from the animal shelter.
His name is Muffin “Houseshadow” Funster.
Houseshadow because he follows me every step I take when I’m home.
Kelly got her upper braces on a couple months ago.
Her lowers go on soon.
Jim designed and is building a spec home here in our neighborhood. It’s a spacious craftsman abode with a vaulted-ceiling open-concept kitchen/living/dining looking out onto the backyard from that long wall of windows.
The 3 little pix on the left show a progression of the back of the house.
Framing, taken New Year’s Day 2016, showing either end of the big living area. A “before” pic for sure, to one day be juxtaposed with the finished product. Stay tuned!!
I’ll show you the house’s front one day too. Lots of wood trim and shutters, olde New England style — with Jim’s own artistic flair, of course!
So happy the exterior of the house is mostly complete now — he can finish the inside all summer in the A/C!!
A cool art museum / park in Austin we had a lot of fun at a few months ago.
I decided on my favorite 15 tunes and updated my chord/lyric Songbook, getting really close now to being ready for some 1-hour shows.
So…. my dear friends, just a few of the pics from our life and times these past few months. For those of you who already saw them on FaceBook and Instagram, thanks for bearing with me!!
Keep on rocking and I’ll talk to y’all soon!!
Oh, and a few photos from her final competitive gymnastics season…
