It’s getting too easy to not post.  I blame Facebook.  I get into this slump and it becomes hard to post at all.  So I’ll just throw this out there…

We survived the play (just barely), the Donalds finally came back from their cross-country trip (yay!),  Andi‘s going to have another baby (yay!), and swim team is over for the year.

We missed 2 of the 5 meets b/c of the play.  Julianna really enjoyed swim team this year, Ben would enjoy it more if we had night swimming. He’s not a fan of the 8 am practice and the 7 am meet.  Julianna’s practice isn’t until 9, so she does okay.  For the last meet, we had to be up at 6 am after having had a play performance the night before and getting home at 11:30.  They then had another performance that night.  Ben says he fell asleep twice backstage, bless ‘im.  When we came in to the Sunday matinee show, the stage crew all asked if he was better.  Apparently the story had grown until he was throwing up and had to be helped to the bathroom.  He was pretty amused to find this out.  Anyway, a few pics:

Ben is apprehensive about this swim, it seems...

Swim team really is the ideal sport for the sport-loathing parent.  You only have to pay attention when your own kid is swimming and even then only for a minute at time.  If only you didn’t have to wake at 6 am…
