Josh & Eden in the swim finals

Here is a fun short video of Eden and Josh in their various swim meets and the finals for their swim team this summer. They both did AWESOME! They got up every morning (MON - FRI) and swam at 7:45 a.m. Then, they had meets each Saturday. They swam in the preliminaries and Eden qualified for the Butterfly (out of more than 60 girls her age). Josh qualified for all 3 strokes he tried out for (Backstroke, Freestyle, and Butterfly). They only take the top 16, so it was great for them to get to swim in the finals. They did awesome! We are so proud of them. video The song in the background is from the movie "Henry V" -- and I LOVE this small section of it.

$400 or $10

This has been my latest project. 

I saw this on the Pott. barn website for $400 (it was much larger), so I decided to make my own! $10 and a few hours later... here you go!

It was actually quite fun to make. Now I want to make more! I redid the downstairs bathroom -- so this is the central decorating theme -- I'm going for a sea scape look. The wall is a hazy blue and the towels are sage green. Now I need to redo the mirrors and lighting.  One thing at a time.
