Day 2: 11/12 dive sucked nuts.l that is all. No divers in last place this year and no diveds DQd, but that's all I have good to say about it.

Day 3: 8 and under swimming Thor was placed (top 16) in all of his events (in the case of the 25 free there were over 100 swimmers). Each place earns points for the team. He so ROCKED IT!

hebe and Hector Swim tomorrow

Lil Pete just got back from fencing camp. All week long we were hearing about this annoying highly rated older girl talking down to the rest of the fencers. Lil lost every bout to her all week, culminating in a phone call where we broke down her game and talked solutions for the final competition. Lil kicked her butt today with the girl's coach directing, sweet victory! The week also re-motivated her to clean up her footwork and showed a college coach she'd like to fence for what she's capable of. Nice work kid!

So awesome that she took on the challenge and did what she needed to win.

I liked that she gave up a couple early touches, but did a little self-talk to put her head in the right place.

Thor got his first ever first place in an individual swimming event tonight (25fly). he blew 11 seconds off his personal best with a time so awesome that he would have taken third if he'd swum that at tri-county Championships in march (when in fact he was DQd for an illegal kick) This season he has rocked with three seconds (to a kid on his team), but he owned the fly.

Hebe also took first in both of her individual events, but that's sort of a given right now. She also rocks, but tonight belongs to Thor.

poor hector had croup and got two shots today (one in each arm), so he was understandably slower than usual, especially in the Fly. But I'm proud he tried -i gave him a free pass to duck out, and he didn't take it.

Congrats to the kids, Mon. And a special shout-out to Hector for competing when he didn't feel good.

Lil Griff's scoring streak ended at 7 games. 0-0 tie with a couple bare opportunities missed by both teams LG set up a beautiful corner but good d held. Both teams left the field heads high.

SHUTOUT! Goalie Hector didn't let a single goal in to help the team achieve their first win of the season -against one of the other in-house teams -the one his good buddy and classmate is on. they gave him the game puck all taped up with pink tape -the color of the day- and the date etc written on it. He's pumped!
