Swimmers, take your mark...

Today was the first day of the summer swim league. All the kidlets were thrilled to be back in the water, even though it's still a bit chilly. Our neighborhood kids are really amazing. They are delightful and hard working, kind to each other and helpful, and they are really good about cheering each other on. We get so many more coaching applications than we have coaching spots. This season we're up to approximately 180 swimmers, and some of them are swimmers who have left other teams to join us. People *want* to be part of our crowd. I'm proud to be on the Board of Directors, and the sweetheart of the swim team (LOL).

So wish me luck as I begin my evenings at the pool until school gets out, then mornings at same. I'll be snarfing burgers and nachos at the crack of dawn on Saturdays, and candy for brunch. But it's worth it. It's for the kids, and I dig 'em an awful lot. :-)

How are your kids' activities going?

Sounds like fun! I wish my kids had that kind of an opportunity around here, but the options are limited (and cost prohibitive). Oldest Daughter will be taking summer school to make room in her schedule next year for all the A.P. courses she wants to sign up for. We are still looking for something for Middle Son, preferably something that involves building. Youngest Daughter is getting signed up for art lessons, as that is the thing that really floats her boat. I'm glad someone around here got a little artistic aptitude, but I'm sure she didn't get it from either myself or her dad. Go figure!

It is a lot of fun. Thanks guys!

MsPrimaDonna--Sounds like your gang is going to be busy, too. My oldest did an art camp last summer. She enjoyed it. Hey, I'd like a sun room...maybe your son could come build it for the summer! LOL. Good luck to your oldest and her AP classes. Wow!

Experiencing being Coach Purses
is an awesome gift. Knowing what it's like to be Coach Hamptons
helps you to be fully present for anyone you interact with. You become committed to them in the same way as your Coach Legacy
is to you. You're living and Coach Luggage
from the inside- out.
