Day 172 Awards Banquet

We had a good time last night at the NCSA awards banquet. The club has really grown over the last two years and there are some wonderful things going on. 

The banquet was held at The Wild Wild West. It was raining like crazy, which was probably good because it would have been really hot in that tent if it was a regular spring day!

Jill was second place for the aggregate award in her squad.....such a close finish! She was also second for the Timmermans award. If she would have won it would have been a three-peat for her. Saman I won though and that was a great thing. Jill was also recognized for being a national swimmer and Allen and I received a lifetime membership certificate. I think that means they still want us to volunteer even after Jill has graduated. LOL 

Peirce enjoyed visiting with his swimming friends too. He misses them. 

We visited with some great people and really had a great time.

Day 172 Leisure Mornings Ahead

It's coming!! One of my favourite things about summer are the leisurely mornings. I like to get up early while my kids sleep in. I make them breakfast, exercise, read and do a little tidying up. These days morning swims are not their usual painful 5:30 am start....they are a relaxing 7 am start! No seminary. Later swim is good!!

This is one of our favourite breakfasts: puff pancakes. I couldn't even get to taking the picture before half if it had been gobbled up. It is good stuff to wake up to!

Day 171 words words words

Sometimes in my enthusiasm for a topic I talk a lot....or, as I'm this case, write a lot.  I must remember that sometimes it is better to keep it simpler.

Found this under the reading no response I shared with my students this week.

Touché, my friend.
