Sports Girls

The twins are almost 10 and it's starting to hit me like a ton of bricks.  Ten years ago at this time, I was teaching a Kindermusik class and toting around a highly energetic 2-year-old son and a sweet little 4-year-old girl.  And I had a BIG belly because I was expecting 2 babies!!  
And we were making an offer for a farmette on County B so we could be closer to Potosi.
I remember standing against one of those "Chieftains" mats on the side of the gym, watching a basketball game and having a friend come up to me, touch my belly (as people who see pregnant women often do), and say, "How's everybody doing??"...right about this time 10 years ago.

Fast-forward a decade, and those babies are out on that court, dribbling basketballs and chatting with their friends.
 They went to Girls & Women in Sports Day about a week ago and had a blast.  Paige liked the hurdles and Shae loved volleyball!  But in the meantime, this is what girls in Potosi do....
 Shae showing off her skills!

 Paige working intently on her opposite-hand dribble.
Mom taking pictures and not realizing how quickly the time is flying until she posts on this blog.

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.--Psalm 90:12
