Eat my bubbles!

"Eat my bubbles!" They write it on their bodies in black sharpie marker!
"Help me with my swim cap." They ask each other for help.
"Do I have to swim Butterfly?" They hope and pray, we will say "Not tonight."
"Did you see me win?"  Even if we didn't...we say "Yes! You did Awesome!"
"Now, Can I go get my snack?" They ask many times until we give in....and Snack really means Candy!
"Where are my goggles?" We wonder how they keep up with anything.
"Did I beat my time?" Hopefully...cause it's worth a purple ribbon!
"Can I go to the playground?" Now someone is getting bored.
"When can we go home?" Not yet...because it is only 9:30 p.m.
"Did we win?"   Does it really matter? Of course, It matters!

I am so happy that my children have the opportunity to be a part of our neighborhood swim team.!
My oldest and youngest are team members, while my middle one plays baseball...and you know I love baseball!
I was an okay swimmer as a child. We were members of the pool down the street and I enjoyed playing and hanging out with friends....but I never had the privilege of being a part of a swim team until now.
It is truly a blast. It brings our neighborhood together....and gives us all such a great sense of community!
The season is just starting....and we are already off to a great start!

Lovin' Summer!


  1. Loving those photos!!
    Enjoy the night

  2. That is awesome jen and the pictures are amazing. Great job.

  3. Awesome photos! Goggles, cap, butterfly, time, win...yep sounds familiar! We are swimmers, too & divers:) Hope it is a great season for you & the kids!

  4. I LOVE swimming. Any sport or activity that takes place in the ocean or the water....that's for me. That's what growing up on an island with a pro surfer father will do for ya.

  5. Great photos. I love that they write "Eat my bubbles"

  6. Holy huge did you do that?! They look awesome! We lived across the street from the neighborhood pool when I was growing up. Well, my parents lived across the street...I lived at the pool. I swam on the team for 8 yrs. I wish my son was a swimmer...he's a good swimmer but has zero interest in being on the team!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. I've been putting off registering my girls for swimming lessons. This post has given me the boot I need. What great pictures too.

  8. great photos. . .such clear shots!

    Leslie misses the opportunity for swim team. . .one of the things we had to give up when we moved!

  9. That is fabulous! And what fun! We have a city swim team too, but it is very committed and we travel too much in the summer! Glad that you are starting your summer off with a blast!
