First Swim Meet
Janey competed in her first Swim Meet this week! She swam the 100 meter freestyle, the 50 meter back stroke and the 50 meter freestyle. She did such a great job! The times she swam this meet will be her times to beat next time. It's so different having a child who loves to swim, since my first three children would rather eat worms than put their faces in the water. Janey is my little fish!
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
Whitney, 17 is a serious student and award winning needle felter. Steve L. is 15 and a Boy Scout. He is a Lego enthusiast, a veracious reader, and a great actor and public speaker. Daniel is 12 and a 1st class Scout and competition fencer. Janey is 10 and loves life. She loves being on the swim team, sewing, cooking and playing the violin. Ellie is 7. She loves dancing, reading and is quite the artist.
