Gold Medal Relay

Today was the Divisional swim meet for Conner and it was quite a day! His 200 Free relay team won GOLD in a very exciting race.

Swimmers take your mark
Conner(lower right) swam the anchor position and came from behind to beat the team seeded first

Conner was very excited and so was DAD
In other events he placed second in the medley relay, seventh in the breaststroke, tenth in the 50 Free and eleventh in the 100 Free. Congrats to Conner and the Oaks Olympians!

Mr. John's Fish Camp

Today was Mr. John's Fish Camp at Sheldon Lake State Park. He showed the kids how to bait a hook with a worm and catch a sunfish and release it back to grow some more. All the kids caught fish!!( with the help of their fathers and mothers and grandparents and uncles)

We had a picnic and alot of fun in the great outdooors.

Paris, je t'aime

I love this city! It is so beautiful and walkable. We did manage the metro and the bus to get around but it is so great for walking and people watching. The nighttime boat cruise on the Seine was perfect.

I love Paris in the Springtime.......

The Louvre was our destination today, along with half of Europe.

We loved the Mona Lisa and Winged Victory.

We saw Venus de Milo and John the Baptist.

We also visted the Cluny Museum to see the amazing tapestries of The Lady and the Unicorn.

Having just read Tracy Chevalier's book, The Lady and the Unicorn, I was anxious to see them and they were colorful and beautiful.

The beautiful Tour Eiffel at night. Tonight a stroll down the boulevards and escargots for dinner!
