Swimming is OVER!

I just don't know what we're going to do with ourselves now that swimming is over! (Ha ha!)

Thursday evening was our swim team "banquet" (pizza and cake). The kids all got medals.

(Jeremy is such a goober!)

We had made a bargain with Annika that if she swam in the last swim meet, we would get her a Webkinz rhino. She decided that she would name it "Rory" after Coach Rory (in the photo). Since the meet was canceled and she did swim the distance for warm-ups, we let her have Rory the rhino. Coach Rory got very invested in Annika this summer, and I think he's pretty pleased with her progress!

According to Annika, Rory the rhino is not a swimming coach. He works at an "ear pierces place" and pierces ears with his horn!

Congrats on making it thru swimming. Just thought I would let you know someone was thinking about you on the other side of the earth. We continue to pray for you as our blessing has just come to reality.

Congratulations on a successful swim season! Thanks for the note of encouragement on my blog tonight. The wait will be hard but as your family knows as well, the reward will be worth it.
