Hi Everyone! Hope you're having a great summer. Can you believe it's already August? Mine is going to be a busy one because it's the start of the high school swim season this month. My daughter is one of the captains so I've got lots of swim captain mom duties this month. So I'm going to be blogging less this month so I can focus on what I need to do for the team and hopefully enjoy it all. And hopefully I'll get more reading in.
