The girls started going to gymnastics in April and have really gotten good at flips and cart wheels and so much more. Rosalyn can't just stand still anymore in the living room...she's always doing cart wheels!
Here's Knox...with his Titans shirt and paci! We sit upstairs and watch everyone.

Katie is in a room that where I can't watch what she does so I got a picture of her before class starts.

My New Hobby

Since moving to TN I have made an attempt to really learn to sew. At First Presbyterian, I was involved in the Sew and Sow ministry and loved learning things there. I never went home and sewed anything though. I am so excited to show you some of the things that I have made. I am really enjoying it and hope to make lots of things!
This checkbook cover was the first thing I made and it was very easy. It took 30 minutes max and so I made several of them.

The other night I made these skirts and it took an hour and a half for the first one and an hour for the 2nd. Fun skirts!
You gotta have a silly pic sometime!

And here's my favorite...
I love these little scarfs. They're still a little big but so fun to wear!

This is the only outfit I've made for Knox. It is a 2T but way too big so I'll have to make an 18 month. I want to put an applique on it once I get it right!

The Franklin Bluegrass Festival

We struck out this morning for downtown Franklin to enjoy some pickin' and a grinnin'. Franklin has an annual Bluegrass Festival every year. Nate and I had been before, back when we lived here the first time. It was always a good time. Even though it was a scorcher, we found some shade and grabbed drinks and snow cones to cool off. Here's a few shots from today.

Celebrating July 4th

It was a fun night with the Faires and Myers, watching the fireworks display in Franklin. The kids had a blast--and so did the adults! Below is a picture of Bea, Oliver, Katie, Rosalyn, and Knox. Aren't they cute?

Arrington Vineyards

We had a great time with some friends at Arrington Vineyards, which is a small grape vineyard and winery a few miles outside of Franklin. They had live jazz music with wide decks and open shady picnic spots to cool off and enjoy fellowship. Here's a few pictures from our time out there.
