A River Runs Through It

My dad titled it appropriately. This video was taken around 6:30 AM in our backyard, but it looks much the same now at 2 PM.

We received at least 5″ of rain during the night last night. We always have a small creek about 24 hours after it rains, but this is the most I’ve ever seen. It’s Mauter Reservoir.

I did it!

My first official 5K was for the Junior League of Birmingham 5K for Kids. A colleague is Race Day Chair, so I thought I would join in and support her cause. It was a great first race, with almost perfect weather! My official time was 32:33, and I placed 19th in my age group. Samantha was disappointed that I didn’t win, but I had to explain that it’s ok because I tried my best and I was proud of myself.

I found out that St. Patrick is the Patron Saint of engineers!

Engineering Go Bragh!


Alabama Gymnastics

We love gymnastics.  Ok, maybe it’s just me.  And Alabama gymnastics?  Those girls are always talented.  They make it easy to cheer for them.

This year we went to the Georgia and Stanford meets.  I’m considering going to the SEC Championships or National Championships, both of which are here in town.

I loved the photo cutout at the Stanford meet.  Clever.

Wow, I feel late to the party, but I just have to share.  The Prince of Peace choirs are all working on getting this song ready for Easter.  I bought it on iTunes so I could practice with it, but out of curiosity I wanted to see if there was a video, so off to YouTube I went.  Can you figure out where it was shot?  Well done, Cheri.
