The weekend

The weekend was nice with not too much going on. The kids had swimming lessons Friday evening. It was the girl's first lesson without us being in the pool with her. She has no fear in the water whatsoever, which is terrifying. She'll push off the step out into the pool like she can swim. The Houston Swim Club teaches toddlers how to survive if they fall into a pool. After just 4 lessons, she can already flip over onto her back and float for a few seconds.

Saturday I ran 8 miles with Fort Bend Fit. I'm in training for the half-marathon in January, but our group is running with the full marathon training until next month. Saturday afternoon we headed over to Star Pizza to meet up with our friends who are in a fantasy football league. Half the group was busy with the draft and we visited with everyone else.

Saturday evening, hubby took the boy swimming and I put the girl to bed early since she'd missed her nap that afternoon. Sunday was filled with errands and laundry (fun stuff) and then we took dinner to my folks and after dinner we all went swimming in their neighborhood pool. Too bad every day can't be a weekend day.

First off, I so respect you for the run. I can run across the street, but that's about it for now.
AND how do I wish we had access to those swim classes when mine were that age. I've seen some coverage on that and it appears to work, no matter what the critics say.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi.

Again I see you are falling under Satan’s influence! Putting your young impressionable daughter in a swim school!! Don't you know that Satan has infiltrated all schools, not just public but swim schools as well. On each visit she is being subtly swayed to the ways of the Devil and the evils of the breast stroke! Why even the name is perverted! Take her out of that school now and teach her at home!
