First Day of School.. for everyone! Say what??

Today all three of my babies went to school.  Yep, Jon Kent was off to 2nd grade, Zoey was off to 1st grade, and Nathan was off to 4K.  And this momma.. was "off" duty.  Well, not off duty just yet.  Nathan only went for about an hour so that he could meet the teacher, we could ask questions, get first day pictures, etc.  But come a week from today.. he will be at school for 3 hours every morning.  I. Can't. Believe. It.  All my babies are growing up and going to school, together.  I know I say this every year and I will continue to say it until they send their kids off to school.. but.. the time has flown and it just doesn't seem like they should all be in school.  I am really started to regret letting them grow up.  I should have pushed that pause button!

Day 4 of the Owens Olympics

Y'all the Olympics are killing me!  The kids of course have endless energy and would play it all day long and night, too.  But me, my word I am tired.  We went to the gym this morning and I did an hour of pure cardio and then we went swimming with friends for almost 2 hours.  By the time I got lunch served and cleaned up I was wiped out. Did I mention I didn't go to sleep until almost 2am.  Not by my choosing mind you, just have a lot on my mind and I guess God wanted me to talk to Him about it instead of mulling it over and over in my own head.  So that's what I did and I think I finally fell asleep around 2, but not before Nate came in to wedge between Kent and me.  Anyway, I said alllll that to say that we finally got some Olympic games in after everyone took a nap (myself included).  Today we did basketball, pogo stick bounce, and bike races.  What's up for tomorrow.. no idea.  But I'll think of something. ;)

Day3 of the Owens Olympics

Is it time for the closing ceremonies yet???

I kid, I kid.


Hand stands

This is Nate's version of hand stands since he still doesn't like going under water.

Crazy hair

Water polo

Water volleyball.

So, today we did Olympic games with swimming as our theme.  We did synchronized swimming (aka who can do the best hand stand), who can hold their breath the longest, the craziest hair do, who can swim under water the longest, water polo, and water volleyball.

The kids enjoyed themselves and the rainy looking clouds left so we could enjoy the warm sunshine while we swam.  We stayed in the pool for about two hours.  The time really flew by.  Now the O'villers are resting up for BJJ (Brazilian Jujitsu). 

And yes, the kids want to know what we are doing tomorrow.

If I only knew..
