My blog is about to get water blogged. All we do is go to the pool and it is a blessed life for sure. I don't have many photos of much else these days (except my floor getting ready for girls camp next week) We go to swim practice twice a day and have two swim meets a week - so for the summer I think my blog may spill over with swim photos. I am trying to use all my tricks my brother taught me for outdoor photos and they seem to be working, for the first time I shot all my photos off of automatic - big step for me!
We actually left the pool for the afternoon to get the girls hair cut. Even though it was against my wishes, Annie Kate got a real hair style and it looks darling on her. These are two of her friends on the team who she also goes to church with and they are just top notch boys who also both know how to ride a unicycle - guess what AK now wants to learn how to do?
tonight was team photo night. They each got individual photos as well as a large team photo. the photographer will for sure wake up tomorrow with NO voice. She was one energetic woman who deserved a tip!. I likely will not buy the photo as it felt a little graduationish with the placed hands on the shoulders.
Caroline could not wait until the team photo to jump in and get swimming. She swam two lengths of the pool and looked like she was drowning the entire time. I kept saying are you ok?
Then when she would go under water she would do this each time...
oh my that girl just cracks me up. I seriously almost jumped in to save her because I didn't think she would make it across the pool.SJ seems fine just hanging in the shallow end and what a shocker that she always finds the yellow noodle! Oh ya and I bought some special shampoo today because her hair is turning a little green --- ooops!
This swim team is just amazing! You can only be on the team if you live in the neighborhood and so there is a real sense of community amongst all the neighbors. Why would we ever think of moving from this place?
Our life guards this summer are also amazing and I am currently working on making them a large gumball jar to keep in their swim office.
We had a team pizza party - pep rally for tomorrow's meet. The theme tomorrow is Mission Impossible so AK has her trench coat and glasses ready for warm ups. She gets to swim Freestyle and Breast Stroke tomorrow.
This photo of Caroline just sums up how she feels when she is at the pool! (except for when she is screaming because she is freezing, got the wrong color of Popsicle, someone took her diving stick, she can't get a pink noodle, she wants a pretzel from the snack bar, her goggles are too tight, she can't find her crocs, i won't let her take a warm shower ever 2 minutes, she wants to be carried to the car, her toe is bleeding from scraping on the bottom of the pool - but other than that she always looks like this--- hee hee!)
