So I finally was able to take some pics of Di at Rising Star Gymnastics. SO here they are. SOme of them are foggy because of the glass, so it made them a little strage. Oh well... the first one is of him doing his back rolls, albeit with some- ok a lot of assistance. Then here is Andy trying to convince him to hold onto the rope swing, he did eventually do it, but he was laughing so hard he only held on for a minute. Dimon is the only kid in the class, so its like a private lesson once a week. Its great and magical!!!!!!! He does have fun, even if he is a little snipe through a good part of it. But its fun and good for us too. Then there is the somersault practice pic. I missed the action shot and only got the little layout position grin from him! His instructor was cracking up at his antics.

An 81-year-old lady from Chicago, Illinois claims the image of the Virgin Mary has appeared on the stomach of a sand turtle her grandson bought for her.
Shirley McVane claims the Virgin Mary, one of the most revered figures in the Roman Catholic Church visited her home because their house if "holy."
Her daughter Dolly Fordyce, 58, told the Chicago Sun, "I thought we were going crazy the first time I saw it. I looked at it and said, 'It can't be.' But then I looked again. I mean, you can't deny it."
McVane adds, "She came to a holy house. I think she came to visit us so God knows she's happy and safe."
But the Archdiocese of Chicago said the church tolerates such things if it brings the faithful back to God. Dianne Dunagan, spokeswoman for the Archdiocese said "If something like that causes people to think about God and pray, that's a good thing.
"Time usually takes care of these things. If it gets to the point where people are flocking to this thing, the church will call in experts. If people forget about it, it may just fade away."
