Her boy-craziness has really come in handy for lessons too. She has a young man, Jordan, as her instructor and would do just about anything he says! He even has her going off the diving board without a life jacket! (This was a little scary for Mom, not for Sarah) My friend Lynn compared the instructor to the Incredibles character today - I think she was right, they do bear some similarities... None the less - Sarah is enamored with him.

Sarah was quite the helper. (Beware of cherry pits....) We were able to make three pies before we ran out of time yesterday. Two raspberry and cherry and one straight cherry. But don't worry folks, I have the makings for eight more pies in the feezer! Maybe we can knock those out on Saturday. So if you are closeby, you will probably have a pie on your doorstep soon.

She did, however, get chosen to kick the ball in from out of bounds! That was pretty exciting! And quite possibly, the only time she was able to touch the ball. We will be playing every Monday and Wednesday night, so maybe she will get in the mix eventually. Right now I am just happy that she is out there running her little heart out and making new friends. (Two of which she has declared as her new boyfriends...uhg...)
Aiden on the other hand, was not interested in watching Big Sis at all - he was more interested in finding out why the "outside" is not air conditioned. He did pretty well for about 15 minutes and then he was done and needed a cold drink! Sounds a lot like Daddy...
I am trying not to take it personally that he smiled at the ceiling fan long before he smiled at me. I did, however, explain to him that it is not the ceiling fan that gets up with him at 2 a.m., and he needed to share the love. He is now very willing to share his smiles. With anyone, or anything!
