As I mentioned earlier, much of my time this last month has been spent at the pool. The kids have two hours of swim practice daily, and then have 6 hour swim meets each Saturday morning.
The swimming, though time consuming, has been a delightful family activity. I join the kids in their daily practices (I am quite proud of the fact that I can still outswim the kiddoes, but I suspect this has more to do with my longer body than with my inherent speed). The Saturday meets, though they can be tedious–especially this last meet where we endured 100+ degree heat and all felt quite sick afterwards–are also great fun. I’ve included a few photos for you to see our family whiling away the time between races….
