Swim Meets and Old Friends

Hi All,
Jackson qualified to compete in the combined swim meet in Dodge City this weekend.  He competed in the 25 free, 100 free and 25 back.  He didn’t place in the top 6, but he had a really good experience.  It was his first combined meet – where the competition is pretty fierce.  It was a two day meet so Jackson, Grace and I spent the night.  Andy had a workshop in Salina on Sunday, so he stayed home with Gabe.

Our good friends, Robert and David came to  the meet and then after we went out for lunch.  I love these two guys so much.  It was great seeing my kids with them – they love their Uncle Robert and David.  I miss them so much!!

I also had the chance to meet up with some other old friends.  I went to college with Michelle and Shan Hanes.  Michelle and I sang together in choir and Soundsations we also both played in band and jazz band.  We had so many good times, but sadly after college we lost touch with each other.  At the first swim meet of this season in Great Bend, I spotted Michelle and Shan, but didn’t have time to do much but say “Hi”.  Well, we met again at the meet this weekend and ended up staying at the same hotel.  Saturday night Michelle and I got to spend a long time talking.  Hopefully we will get to see each other a couple times a year as our kids compete in swimming in the future.

Here are some pics from the weekend.
