1. I LOVE March Madness. LOVE.
2. KU didn’t make a #1 seed but they didn’t really deserve it. The #2 seed was fine.
3. I took this blindfold bracket approach and came up with KU to win it all. It’s kind of fun if you haven’t already tried it.
4. I actually had Kentucky to win it all in the first bracket I made. I just couldn’t do it and ended up ripping it up and doing a new one where KU wins it all.
5. As much as I want KU to win (or at least do well), I want Mizzou to lose. K State used to be my least favorite team but that honor has now gone to Mizzou.
Kenny’s last basketball game is on Saturday. Not all of the boys are going to be there so their coach gave them their medals last night.
Eric started training to qualify for the U.S. Masters Swimming 2012 Summer Nationals. It’s July 5-8 in Omaha. He’s hoping to qualify in the 50, 100, 200 free and the 200 IM. He hasn’t done a long-course meet (meter pool) in a long time!
Currently, Eric swims the 50 free in :23.5, which converts to 27.33 in meters.
His 100 free time is :51, which is 59.1 in meters.
His 200 free is around 1:58, which converts to 2:16.
Finally, he swims the 200 IM somewhere around 2:09, which would be 2:31 in meters.
The qualifying times for Nationals for these events in his age group are:
50 free – :28.5
100 free – 1:03.98
200 free – 2:28.15
200 IM – 2:45.26
He should qualify for them all. He should also be able to qualify for the 14th FINA World Master Championship but traveling to Italy for it would be a lot more expensive than a trip to Omaha:)

I was going through my cell phone and found these pics that I never posted (and want to get on here).
Kenny and Luke playing RISK
They are definitely my kids
Royals game in September
I swear Kenny was there but all of the pictures of him were with his friend JT (and I don’t want to put someone else’s child on here)
Luke sleeping with his shoes because he liked the lights on them
Camille with a huge stick stuck in her collar
I have no idea how this happened but if she can get something caught in it (like here), she will.
Luke and his t-ball medal
Luke while eating at 75th Street Brewery
Kenny (and his medal) at his soccer banquet this fall
I signed Kenny up for his first skiing lesson yesterday. I wish Luke could have gone along too but you have to be 5 to take lessons at Snow Creek. The lesson was 3 hours long and worth every penny. He was skiing down the beginner hill by the end of it.
And here are 2 videos:
1. Taking the tow rope up the hill (despite what the report card says):
2. Skiing down the hill:
Eric ran the Kansas City Marathon on October 15th!
It was funny because, for the first week following the race, he swore that he would never run another marathon. Then, once the pain receded, he changed his mind and said that he wants to do another one. I think it’s kind of like having a child. You kind of forget how painful it actually was after a while.
4 = the number of games the kids had on Saturday.
We went from Luke’s soccer game to Kenny’s football game to Kenny’s two soccer games.
- Luke is getting so good at being aggressive in soccer games. He didn’t score a goal but he came this close two different times.
- Kenny was the QB for part of his football game. His team finally had their first win.
- Kenny’s soccer team is really good. They won every game last season. Our entire team moved to a different league this season (along with the majority of the teams we played against in the past). They’ve lost two games this season (including one on Saturday) but I think it’s good that they did.
Kenny’s football games are a lot of fun to watch. We just wish that his jersey wasn’t purple:)
We switched Luke from the Y soccer over to another program. The Y does a great job but for some reason the group that he played soccer with last year was just out of control. The kids spend 30 minutes practicing their skills and then play a 30 minute game.
Coming to give me five after scoring a goal during practice.
Kenny is playing flag football for the first time (on top of soccer). It’s going to be a fun but busy fall.
I received this email today:
Amid the latest round of conference realignment discussions, I want all KU alumni to know that Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and Dr. Sheahon Zenger, KU athletics director, are aggressively pursuing the best possible outcome for KU. As the chancellor expressed yesterday, they will continue to keep our community informed.
The unsurpassed loyalty of the Jayhawk Nation is one of KU’s greatest assets. Thanks for all you do to strengthen KU.
Here’s a link about what’s going on.

A Mizzou fan, a KU fan, and a K-State fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team the most. The K-State fan insists that he is the most loyal. ”This is for you, K-State!” he yells, and jumps off the mountain. Not to be outdone, the KU fan is next to profess his love for his team. He yells, “This is for the Jayhawks!” and pushes the MU fan off the mountain.
Kenny and Luke finished up their swimming lessons yesterday. Kenny officially passed all the levels and Luke passed his preschool 2 class.
Kenny had his end of the season swim team banquet on Monday night. We went to half of it and then had to run over to his last baseball game. Now that the boys’ sports are done, our days are pretty wide open (and I’m not complaining).
Swim team banquet
Last baseball game
I hope the Royals are better by the time Kenny and Luke are old enough to play for them. If not, the Cardinals or the Red Soxs will be getting them.
Hi everyone! I have some exciting news – or maybe it would be more accurate to say that I have some news that’s exciting to us. Eric and I spent the last few days putting together a new website. It’s called My Daily Swim and as the name states, it offers daily swimming workouts for different levels of swimmers. Even better, the workouts are free.
Wish us luck!
Even better, pass the website on to any friends that might be interested. We would be very, very grateful!
