My Boys



I love to watch my boys.  They both love the water!  Patrick is a wonderful swimmer and seeing him in the water is like watching a graceful dolphin.  

This summer we tried to focus on getting the kids in the water as much as possible.  At first Josiah didn't like getting his face wet, but by the end of our Florida vacation at the beach he was doing this...

This past weekend Patrick finished his 2nd Triathlon, The Frantic Frog!  He started out swimming 400 meters in open water, biked 15 miles and finished the race after a 3 mile run.  The kids and I had a great spot by the water where we could watch him swim and cross the finish line!  

He came in 10th for the swim out of 400+ people participating!!  I think he will only get faster on his bike and run.  He hopes to do more Triathlons next summer... especially collecting the fun T-shirts!  

We are very proud!
