The third season of "The Fins" Swim Team has now come to a close. I know it's sad, but I don't think the kids are missing those morning swim practices too much. I must admit, it's been nice to be a bit more lazy now. Anyway, for the past couple of years, the kids have been involved in swim team. We think it's great because they stay active during summer, get some good exercise and have become quite good at swimming! We would go to practice each morning during the week at 9am and workout for a hour. I even got in a workout, by walking the neighborhood, while they were in the pool! So it was really a win win situation for everyone! Each Tuesday evening we would then have "The Meets". Those are always fun because the kids get to hang out, eat a bunch of junk food and swim a few races here and there. Then afterwards we always had to hit the local Sonic for a milk shake or something to top of the junk food requirement of the day. It has really become a fun summer tradition!

Now that I'm working at the elementary school, I have really appreciated the oodles of time I've had this summer to get stuff done! One of my projects was redecorating the kids bathroom. Before it was done in lovely yellows, purples and greens with a rubber ducky theme. Collin informed me that it was way to babyish for him to use. So it needed to be updated and have a more "grown up" look! So this is what I came up with and I must say, I'm pretty excited about it. I used some left over paint from Samantha's room, made some new curtains and bath drapes, and got some vinyl from my mother in law! All of that made it not too expensive either. I'm happy with it! And now Collin is able to use his bathroom without feeling ashamed. Yeah!

He's destined to be a rocker dude now with the new guitar he received for his birthday! He just sort of fell right into character when he picked the thing up. Amazing.....
