Our team is now 24-1 and beat the one team that we lost to this season in a District Championship match. We beat Palm Bay in 3 games and the girls played awesome. It's nice to be Back-to-Back District Champs! We host the first round of regionals at our place this coming Tuesday vs. Olympia who we have beaten once already this season.

We're playing in the District Championship!

We beat Vero Beach tonight in the Semi-Finals to earn a spot in the Championship match tomorrow night vs. Palm Bay. Our record is now 23-1, with our only loss coming from Palm Bay. I think our team is pumped up to try and pull off the "W" against the only team we lost to this season. Regardless of the outcome tomorrow night we will advance to next weeks regional match which will take place on Tuesday. Go Kowboys!!!! :)

Amongst others we got to see State Senator Bill Posey, Governor Charlie Christ, Senator Mel Martinez, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Todd and Sarah Palin.

The Palin Rally was at the Silver Spurs Arena
Volunteering! :)
The arena was filling up fast!

Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Tony

These Secret Service Guys are no joke!
Sean Hannity! Gotta love him! It's great b/c you know he's doing his job when all the liberals know who he is and despise him so much! :)
Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Elisabeth, Sarah, and Todd
Sarah, Sarah!!! :)

Fishing with Uncle Brian

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago when Uncle Brian was babysitting and fishing with the kids behind our house. Alli had fun with the boys too but for some reason didn't make it into any of the pictures. I think she enjoyed being the photographer for the most part!

Flat Chris' trip to see Uncle Keith

Flat Chris went to visit Uncle Keith in Southbend, Indiana. Uncle Keith is a law student at the University of Notre Dame and showed Flat Chris a great time as they toured the beautiful campus. They toured the Basilica, the football field, the Administration Building and lots of other fun places. Check out some of the pictures from Flat Chris' trip with Uncle Keith....

Flat Alli's trip to see Uncle Robby

Uncle Robby lives in North Carolina right outside of Charlotte. He works as a Manager at the Rec Warehouse and sells all kinds of fun toys that Flat Alli enjoyed playing with while hanging out with Uncle Robby at work. Flat Alli had a great time!

Sweet Girl

No longer undefeated....

Our volleyball team is now 15-1 after dropping a match last night to Palm Bay. We won the first game and lost the next three. It was a long, close match and we were of course upset with the outcome of the game. Palm Bay played great and outplayed us. We played a solid game but a couple of our better players were visibly having an off game. Oh well...
In a crazy kind of way I think it was good for us. Maybe our heads were getting a little too big? Maybe this will help us better prepare for the end of our season and concentrate on always playing our "A game" or we will be going home with the same outcome. Tough loss that's for sure! I can't stop thinking about it but at the same time am trying to get over it b/c that's the best thing to do. We need to now prepare for another tough schedule next week. (3 games)

Catherine is officially crawling!

Happy 6 month Birthday today Catherine! (October 2nd) We're so happy that she's crawling now but Daddy is getting a little aggravated with her obsession of his laptop cord and other things she shouldn't be touching. We now have a pack-in-play in our living room corner with her toys in it so that she can be caged in at times when she's getting into trouble! She is at a super cute stage though!!! :)
