Updates and Pool Pictures

Ok - FIRST -

DYNAMITE IS THE U8 Divisional Champions!!! Prissy - pitched a no hitter! Prissy - had 2 RBIs off of an amazing double. The score 2-0. (meaning Prissy's double was the only score in the game!!!) I freaking CRIED! I'm such a damn freak. (I cried because the girls were SO HAPPY!! I was so proud of all of them!!! And MY BABY ROCKS! (really, I swear I'm not a "sports mom!"))

Ok - our pool - super incredible. As promised - here are the final construction pictures:

Gorgeous Finished Pool

We still have to landscape. First, we need to figure out the sprinklers and then bring in the plants. Hopefully it will go just fine. We should be able to swim sometime next week. And it's actually going to start getting hot next week - so that will rock. Also? We'll be done with both softball and baseball and have a little extra time. Yay!

not gonna lie, a bit jealous of the pool! It's 85 degrees inside my house right now and I could climb through this computer in order to swim in that pool.
