Last swim meet

Emma and Luke swam in their last swim meet this year today for the Conference meet in Elkin, NC. It was really hot today and we were outside in the sun from 8:30 until about 1pm today. It would have felt good to jump in the pool with them. Drew got really hot and cranky so he and I left for an hour or so and road around to cool off. They had a great time swimming this year and have shown lots of improvement. Here are a few pics.

Saturday Swimming

I woke up around 3am with a really yucky sick feeling – don’t know if it was the hotdog at Bible school or the grilled Oreo’s – thanks Faith for the new trend. Joey the master griller could flip Oreo’s like nobody’s business! Anyway – I was up for a while so Mike let me sleep in this morning and got Emma and Luke off to their last home swim meet. He’s such an awesome husband – he even found Luke’s swim trunks that had been missing since the last meet. I got up when Drew did and he and I headed to the pool so Mike could study for preaching tomorrow. Emma swam an awesome freestyle for the relay team – her coach told her it was the best she had done all season – she was beaming! Luke did a great job on his 50meter freestyle – only the second time he has swam a 50 at a meet – getting faster every time. One more swim next weekend in Elkin for the Conference Meet.
Can’t believe summer is almost at an end. I feel like it has flown by. Not at all ready to start school again but I guess it’s about that time. I better start ordering some material. If you are interested in homeschool sights check these out –rainbow and sonlight and for math and for handwriting. I will blog about homeschooling soon. I might include a few things I shared with my friend Diana – an avid homeschooler about why I don’t intend to homeschool for much longer. My school age kids are entering 3rd and 2nd grade and I have loved having them at home but . . .. I will save all that for later.
