While I was downloading my FLIP from the weekend, I came across these. This is just me showing off my kids and being a proud mom. I love tagging along in what my kids do. There are so blessed.

We spent a wonderful weekend in Indy at the Long Course State Swim meet. August swam like a fish, as usual and had a good weekend.
She swam in the IUPUI Natatorium, which is a pretty cool place. There is a lot of history with great swimmers having competed there.

Do you know how squirmy and unfocused a little one can be? One minute they are on their chair and the next minute they are attempting to climb a wall! We all need to give our full attention and learn to be respectful when we pray. I recently heard it explained in a way that I thought was a PERFECT way to teach children to pray.
*WHY DO WE FOLD OUR HANDS WHEN WE PRAY? OUT OF RESPECT FOR OUR FRIENDS. It is hard to stay focused when we are trying to punch our friend or waving our hands in the air. If our hands are folded in front of us, they are not going to distract our friends.
*WHY DO WE CLOSE OUR EYES WHEN WE PRAY? OUT OF RESPECT FOR OURSELVES. When our eyes are closed we are not looking around to see what our friends are doing and we can focus on our talk with God.
*WHY DO WE BOW OUR HEADS WHEN WE PRAY? OUT OF RESPECT FOR GOD. God deserves us to bow before Him. We are showing respect and love when we bow our heads to talk to God.
