B took a short nap yesterday and it was very hot out, so we headed to the children's museum for the afternoon. This was the first time B actually could play and move and so the big guys introduced him to the baby area. It was so fun to watch the big guys crawl around and play with him.

LT qualified for league in every event he swam this season. You can only swim 3 individual events and two relays. Above is his relay team, they came in second in both the medley and free relays.
He did really well in his 25 back, 25 free and 50 free also. Above you can see he came in 4th in the 25 back (the list continued onto the next page, so this was out of 30 or so kids). He came in 6th out of 47 in 25 free. We didn't stay long enough for the 50 free results, but he qualified for state in it and took off a full second. Next week is state, 3 individual events and 2 relays again!

Our neighbors and friends have a pool in their yard. We went over today for brunch and to swim. They have 5 girls, 4 older (around our big guys age) and a baby who is just days older than Blane. There were a few other families from the boys school there too, which made it really fun.

So many of both Brian and my summer childhood memories are of fun with friends after swim team or at swim meets. We've only been members of our pool for a year, but the boys (and us) are slowly getting to know more and more people. Today was a breakthrough for the boys. Adler had his "B" league swim meet which I took him to. Below he was playing card games with friends. My dad took Landon to practice, but Landon really wanted us to come if we were finished in time (and we were). After practice, we usually rush out, but today he said, "I want to hang out with my friends". He headed over to where a group of three were standing and they talked for quite awhile. I couldn't be happier that they have found the same joy in swim team that both Brian and I had as kids.
