Another Swimmer in the Family

Eric has decided that he wants to be a swimmer, too. Or at least check it out and see if that's what he wants to do. He started doing club swim a week and a half ago. Saturday was his first meet. It is so different than high school meets. Very non-competitive, and the age groups vary. They have an 8 and under group, 9-10, 11-12, and 13 and up. BTW, those little kids are just adorable! It's so funny to see them stop in the middle of the race to fix their goggles, or doing the wrong strokes, or jumping in at the wrong time. Super funny!! Here's a picture of him racing Saturday. So far he only races freestyle. He got two second places for his own events, and two first places for his relays. (They were the only team on one of the relays:)
Here's Eric getting ready for his last relay race. He thinks he likes it so far, and plans on getting ready for water polo next month. Club swim will help him get into shape so he's hopefully a little bit ahead of the other freshmen, or at least not behind!!

Nothing to Blog about....

I love looking at other people's blogs & sometimes I get upset when they aren't updated frequently... then I started thinking about how often I blog - which is almost never these days. It's really not because nothing is happening in my life, I guess it just because I don't think it's exciting enough to blog about....

The boys are out of school & life has gone from schedules to lazy days. I love it! I just wish the weather would cooperate so it actually felt like summer here. I'm sure within a week or two I will be complaining about it being too hot - so I guess for now I should just enjoy the cloud-cover and misty mornings, but I don't! I'm ready for some sunshine!!!

One very exciting thing that happened is that Zak was transferred to Ann Arbor. I am very happy about that & the fact that he is loving his time serving the Lord! Who wouldn't be happy about that? I'm so thankful that he didn't pass up this opportunity to have an adventure of a lifetime. Memories & experiences that he could never have anywhere else! I am very proud of his sacrifice - I know it is hard, but I also know that he makes the best of every single day! Just look at that smile!
I just love this boy!
