Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Water babies

We have been spending ridiculous amounts of time at the pool for the kids swim team.  Practice every day and 3 meets this week (about 5 hour long swim meets)  Kobi and Jack are really enjoying it.  Mina and Finn could do without.  Thankfully Marc and I take turns going to the swim meets or hanging with the babies so they only have to endure the daily practices. You gotta have the team tatoo. 

Lining up for his race. 
Two peas in a pod these two.  I have never seen two kids that get along so well.  Kobi's the little Mama and Jack loves having someone take care of him. They are total opposites and it works really well for them.   Marc told me a horrific story about a brother and sister duo like this... when the son grew up he rebelled from the big sister, now of course I can't get that horrible image outta my head. 
Mommy lets us put stickers on our face to keep us busy at swim practice.  Then I cry when she has to pull them out of my hair. 
Playing with mommy's cell phone,  even though we have a bag of toys, a bag of snacks, and a volley ball court/ sandbox, Mama's cellphone and keys are the best.

Would love to come cheer your kiddos on - let me know when the next meet is (I still harbor ill will about swim meets from my childhood - I don't handle pressure well - hence, I haven't encouraged mine to participate, slack mom that I am ;) On another note, glad to see Mina's bangs are leveling out... ;)
