It's Summer Time

YES! It is summer time and that means summer vacation. Just wanted to give a head's up that I am shutting down my Etsy stores and websites until around July 13. It's time for some rest and quality time with the family.

Hard to believe the kids have been out of school for over 5 weeks now. I feel like I have just blinked and the days have flown by. It has been busy for me personally too. I took on the volunteer job of being a co-parent rep for the kids summer swim team. Wow, I had no idea how much that involved. It is seriously a part time job. It has been a lot of fun and I have loved getting to meet loads of new families and their kids. There are only a few weeks left of the season though and then I will regain my late lazy mornings. I am not a morning person. Not even a little bit so the thought of getting up early every morning in the summer is the worse part of being a parent rep. Isn't that terrible? Once I'm up and going the world is good and I do enjoy the early time at the pool and being outside. I LOVE summer.

Each week after the meet they have game day at practice. This is my Caiden attempting to tight rope walk over the water. Guess you can tell that Live Wire show was on just a few nights before this game was set up for the kids. A doughnut was awarded to the first kid who could make it across. Sadly, no doughnuts were handed out.  The head coach was the only one who could pull it off almost every time.

The big boys being boys and showing off their abilities on the life guard stand.

Team Photo. We have about 125 kids on the team. Not all of them showed up for the team pics. It's an awesome group of kids. So far we have been undefeated. Just 2 more meets and conferences left to go. I will be sad when it is all over.

So that is just a small insight into what has been occupying a lot of my summer time. I must admit that I do try to bring bead stuff up to the practices to work on. It isn't the most productive place but better than a poke in the eye:-)
