My Office and Swim Team For The Kids!

I can't complain!
Beautiful summer days spent organizing our calendar and catching up on things while the children had swim team!
I always meant to read but I never quite picked up that book, just carried it to and from the pool. every. 

The pool was right in front of me and 11 kiddos were in it!
Sarah, Mia, Ava, Melissa, Abby, Anna and Sam competed on the swim team.
We were the happy to be here crowd, not the I'm going to beat you crowd!
Ben and Madeline were learning about swim team and had their opportunity to be in a swim meet at the end of the year!
 Joey and Luke... ?
Let's see? 
What were they doing?
Well, they were on the Jr Swim team and by the looks of it...
They had a lot of fun but will...
continue to be on the Jr Swim Team,
maybe forever!
(Em and El were in summer school.)

 Our first swim meet was a lot of fun and the kids learned so much!
(this is the warm ups)

And we may have been DQ'd a few times or more than a few times ; - )

But that doesn't matter because we improved some of our times on some of our strokes, 
throughout the summer!

Sometimes it's good to try new and different experiences!
Not sure what next summer will bring!

At this particular meet we were rained out at the end.
(forever sisters!)

Even that was fun!

Our future does not lie in competitive swimming,
but we sure enjoyed participating on the swim team!

And we made some wonderful memories!

Loved seeing you at the pool!!! It's always nice to have others join us in the "happy to be here" group ;)
Your children should all be proud of their improvements throughout the season. Swim team is a big commitment for moms and kids!
