Buttermilk and Strawberries

What a busy weekend. On Saturday we headed north into the Adirondack Mountains (ADK) for a day hike with Hannah's girl scout troop. The weather forecast called for sunny skies, but the minute we started hiking the heavens opened and the rain started pouring down! Despite the rain everyone had a great time ~ we even saw some red salamanders and stood at the base of Buttermilk Falls! After church today we headed out to pick several quarts of strawberries.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated with the summer Olympics in particular. I absolutely love watching the gymnastics events and follow them pretty closely. This weekend were the Olympic trials for both the men and women gymnasts. The men's team has been announced ~ Joe Hagerty, Morgan Hamm, Paul Hamm, Jonathan Horton, Justin Spring & Kevin Tan. The two top women gymnasts: Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin are already on the team and now 12 Olympic hopefuls will find out if they have made the team after the training camp in mid July.

After watching hours of gymnastic this weekend I am super excited to see them represent the USA at the Olympics starting on 8-8-08. The gymnasts are have mad gymnastic skills and I feel like we have what it takes to take the gold! Looking forward to a more pain free week this week. Enough of the low pressure headaches ~ they are making me lose my personality.
