I don't know why but I feel like this picture pretty much sums up my eldest.
She has no idea that someone is snapping that picture.
The coach behind her is not saying anything to make that cute little smirk.
She is just plain content with her little self and I love it.

Swim Champs

We just finished up the morning session of our league swim champs.  Both girls made it to champs this year.  Audrey made it back this evening for freestyle and Celia made it back as an alternate for free and in a relay.

Our swim caps our for Scott Elliot who passed away 2 weeks ago.  He was a swim coach for one of the league swim teams.  The league is donating 50/50 sales, shirt sales, and wrist band funds to the family this year.   We all bought these swim caps and they are great but BIG!

See swimmer in the farthest lane?  That is Celia.  When she started there relay team was behind the lane next to her.
Look where they finished!!

I posted pictures now because the weather forecast has us in the rain the rest of the evening and tomorrow.

July 19

Maybe when the kids go back to school I will update the blog more!!

It is that time of year and we are knee deep in all things swimming so I always think about my Dad around this time of year.  Both girls have had an awesome swim season and Audrey has had so much fun at meets.  It is cute to see her branch out a little with a new friend or two and Celia has her group of friends too.  Most of the time both girls are with each other in the pool but sometimes they separate.  At meets, they barely know where the other one is as they are too busy with their own friends.

This year I am especially reminded about my Dad because the league lost a member.  I did not know Scott Elliot however he was a coach for another team and a coach for a winter team and an assistant swim coach for a local university and a father and a husband.  The league will be doing a few things for him and for the family.  We received an email in the fall detailing his cancer battle and sadly he lost that fight a few days ago.

So Dad here's to another year.  Cecelia reminds me of you with her creativity and her kind heart, the little one has for certain your sense of humor.
