Foto Flashback

Here's another Foto Flashback to 2004 when Josh and Ethan had started swimming for the local recreation team. It was all so innocent back then . . . . .

And now, I'm in over my head being "swim mom" for a team of 225 kids and helping put on a triathlon this Saturday morning. I have been living and breathing swimming the last two weeks! But it's all worth it when I see the boys swim and realize that they do very well. I like that they are confident swimmers and not just a frightened doggy paddler like myself.

Foto above is Ethan swimming a crooked back stroke - it's not so crooked after 4 years of swimming!

Josh definitely likes swimming more than Ethan does. The coaches say he has a great kick, we're working on arms now.

Oh, I so wish I could be a swim mom with you! It brings back so many memories of being on swim team as a kid. Sadly, my first two aren't interested. I'm still holding out hope for the third one, though!

Good luck with the triathelon!

I am with MCMommy... was that a typo?
225 kids?
Swim mom to 225 kids AND putting together a triathlon?
They should erect a statue in your honor.
Maybe even hold a parade.

Yes, there are 225 kids on the swim team. It's not too bad except right here at the beginning when you're trying to get suits, goggles, hoodies, fins and t-shirts for all of them. It should all calm down next week though - thank goodness! I'm behind in reading all my books~

Wow, you are always up and doing. Makes me feel a little guilty for sitting around here on my turkis.
