Summer Swim Team 2010

Both Benjamin and Nathaniel did our local swim team this summer and had a lot of fun.  It was great exercise for them and it's good for kids who are really good at a lot of things, to spend some time working on something that they aren't so fabulous at.  Both of them made it to championships, which caught me totally by surprise, but they loved that they'd qualified.

This picture is of Benjamin at the end of year banquet winning the award of "Jr. Coach".  He would do an hour of practice with his age group each morning and then stay an extra hour to help with Nathaniel's age group.  Teaching the younger kids helped him get better at a few things, too.

We are really happy to live in an area that provides our children with so many wonderful opportunities.

And we are proud of our boys for all their hard work this summer!

LOve that celebration pose of his. Good for your boys. I tried to convince my boys to sign up for the swim team that practices 1/4 mile from my house. No luck. Instead, they wanted to go and watch their friends practice (and make snide remarks about their speedo swimsuits). Hope your school year has gotten off (or will get off) to a good start.

We love your boys and miss seeing you guys. Glad to hear they had a great summer. Hope all is well in C-bus.
