The Weekend Wrap-up–plus a little more
Actually, there’s not a lot of wrap up this weekend as we spent it at the aquatic center for the Heartland Area Championships (comparable to state championships, with qualifying swimmers from teams from southern Illinois and eastern Missouri competing). Forgive this Nana for bragging, but I have to say that the Ts did very well … they dropped time on almost all (if not all) of their events, medaled on most (T#1 medaled on all his, finishing 3rd or higher; T#2 medaled on all but 1 and on that event, she finished .01 second away from medaling – that’s one hundredth of a second, y’all!; and T#3 did well and medaled on 1 event – not bad at all for a 7 y.o. in his second season of swim and his first Area appearance).
Forgive the less-than-spectacular quality of the two smaller photos, as they were taken by my iPhone from clear across the pool. That’s T#1 in the blue hoodie and T#2 receiving her medal, and in the group photo, that’s my little guy there in the center … the one in just his jammers, with the 1 medal.
The swimmers get a much-deserved break for a couple of weeks … then summer warm-ups start on April 6 … Monday through Thursday nights in the pool again. Those swimmers work hard, but it has paid off in medals.
I can’t forget T#4 … she and I went for a walk outside between the afternoon and evening sessions yesterday. I wanted to get a picture of the tree buds, and thankfully she was my backdrop.
T#3 got his quilt last night, but I didn’t get a photo. He was excited … I can’t wait to see it on his bed.
I *ought* to get caught up on some housecleaning today, but I’m really wanting to get back into the sewing room to get started on piecing together my Kiss blocks. I ought to compromise, do some cleaning until noon and then sew. But I’m not so sure that’s what I’ll do. After a weekend away from my needle and thread, I am anxious to sew.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
