Swim Meet

I have not fallen out of the face of earth, I have been extremely busy both at work and at home. Last week the kids had a swim meet and it was the first time for Ryan. It was pretty hectic but a lot of fun. Alex was great, he swam the 50 freestyle and the 100 breaststroke and he did really well. In the freestyle he got an A time and got first place. Ryan was so sweet, a little nervous for his 25 backstroke, but he went for it and got second place.

Raining week-ends

I like rainy week-ends, especially if we do not have anything planned and we adapt to the weather. Today is one of those days.One of the advantages of living in California is that soon enough the sky will be blue and that will last for several months. So, with that in mind, rainy days are not all that bad for me. We went out in the morning for hair cuts, grocery shopping and a fast lunch at an Indian restaurant, but the best part of the day has been the afternoon. The noise of the rain and the feeling of warmth in the house are for me a great combination. Lucas took his nap and Ryan was at one of his friends' house for a playdate, so the silence was sovereign in the house for a while.
