Even Britt enjoyed some time on Alvin - Brady's leg can only take a little bit of riding. Alvin, who is a hot rod, takes such perfect care of Britt, it is mind-boggling. Below, you see the two B's having a "jowsting" contest. After several runs of this, they switched to an "Indian" contest and proceeded to whoop and holler their best Indian calls. In years past, this would have taken Alvin higher than a kite, but he just plodded around like it was nothing, with Britt carrying on for several minutes at a time in his "calls." Brady and I just shake our heads in wonder and appreciation... We are so grateful for these horses and for times like these. These are the days!

By Day Three, they were a bit tired, and didn't play well in their first game of the day. But they rallied and came to life in their second game, and looked good! Braiey's arms and legs were a little sore from all the action, but she is a trooper! She was so happy there was no practice on Monday night, because she didn't have to miss her favorite show, WWE Monday Night RAW. She works really hard and is always focused and tries her best in every game. Best of all, she is kind to everyone. She makes us proud!

This is his 100 Free, where he was working on his head being still. Looks great to me - I just don't know how he BREATHES!

Brady, Britt and I took a walk in between Brailey's games, which was, ironically, near the Murray Business Center on Murray Blvd. It was a beautiful day, and so nice to get out of the noise of the building.
I know I'm her mother and probably barn blind, but is that the sweetest face you've ever seen?! Her spirit is so precious. Below, her serves are getting more powerful. She has a lot of refining to do, but as you can see, they are nearly a jump serve, and a couple of them were so powerful they hit the back wall! This is a big improvement over last year, when she was still underhand serving.
During a small break, she took the opportunity to enjoy Brady's World Famous Volleyball Chair. It may be heavy, but it is definitely comfortable, and Brady refuses to attend a tournament without it. Britt, as you can see, is enjoying the action immensely!
The next day was Super Bowl Sunday, and Britt was in heaven playing up on his hill. This is his favorite place in the world. It is so fun to look outside and see him acting out scenes by himself, complete with talking and sword fighting and shooting pretend guns that are actually sticks. Another fabulous weekend in the books! And now we are in to FEBRUARY, already! Next week? Britt's birthday! I'm sure he will look much happier in those pictures. Stay tuned!

And then, another one of Brailey's friends showed up, who also has a sibling on TEAM Eugene. Rachel and Brai were on the same Kidsports volleyball team this fall (remember The Dream Team?), and they had a big time catching up with one another. They chatted and laughed and cheered their siblings on - it was adorable to watch them, because they enjoy each other's company so much.
Anyway, another swim meet in the books. Britt swam really well, considering his practice schedule has been a bit off, lately, due to Brady's and my travel. He swam against kids who swim 2-3 times more a week than he does, and held his own, so we are excited to see how he does once he starts practicing more. His strokes look excellent, so he has a good foundation to build on. We love the way he loves to swim - his passion for the sport makes all the time and money worth every second and cent! GO BRITTSTER MAN!
