Olivia realized that she needs to start moving quicker in both science and geography. Both are set up as 5 day a week classes, but our schedule only allows for 4 days a week. The sudden realization that she's not going to finish until mid summer has jostled her into doubling up on those 4 days to make up for the lost day. In the photo below she's creating a storm surge.
Basketball season is in fully swing. Poor Lindsey is the tiniest player in the 11-15 year old bracket, and it's a mixed league with boys and girls on the same team. This week's game was against a team from a local boys home. Watching her try to guard someone 6ft. tall, and probably 150-175 pounds was "interesting". While she obviously couldn't keep him from shooting, she actually did a really good job of isolating him and keeping him from getting the ball as much as he typically does. Surprisingly, Olivia is one of the two most aggressive players on the team and she's always right in the middle of things scrapping for the ball. I never would have thought it possible. Tomorrow is a "bye" week, so there is no game.
We're still hitting the gym 4-5 times a week. Lindsey has quite a following with the elderly population at the gym, as well as with the personal trainers. She's developed a new exercise routine for Olivia and my husband and really kicks their butts when she's working them. We've had two different trainers tell us they can see her doing this for a living. I finally hit the 35 pound weight loss mark! I've been stuck at 30 since before Thanksgiving!
