Future Olympians?

Maverick has been learning swim strokes through the city swim program this summer. He chose to skip the meets each week because he "didn't want to race." He heard medals rather than ribbons were given at the final meet and quickly changed his tune.

He did well, and seeing him excited made the weeks of sweating in the bleachers worth it. Maverick placed in both back and fly.

I have to admit it was fun sitting with Jill each week and then watching our sons accept their medals yesterday. I have to give a shout out to Emma who completely took her heats by storm. Jaw-dropping butterfly. Being a swimmer in a former life, I hold the fly in highest regard.

Thank you for the picture, Jill. Yours are always so much better than mine.

Look at those cute boys we have! The schweat was a small price to pay to have 1 whole hour of daily small-talk w/you, don't you think? No interruptions and no fights to break up? Well worth it.

And yes, I'm pretty sure we have some future olympians on our hands here. Let's start looking into what foreign country we get to visit in the Summer of 2024.

Congratulations to Maverick!
The sweating in the bleachers reminds me that Popwarner Football games will soon be here. When the season is over, I always say it is worth it. (I think) Crazy Yuma!

Wonder where he gets his fly skills from? ;)
