Swimming again this weekend. Kohler had his Junior/Senior Champs meet at George Mason University Friday through Sunday, which meant three mornings in a row we had to get up at 5 a.m. to be at the pool by 6:15 a.m. Yuck! Luckily his events were usually first, so we were home by 11 a.m. most mornings. Kohler swam well, getting best times in four out of six events. Ironically, the two events he didn't improve in are his best events, but he's swum those every weekend for high school meets for the last few meets, so he's pretty burned out on the freestyle. In any case, Kohler made finals for both the 100 and 200 breast stroke, so we also had to go back Friday and Saturday evenings for the finals meet. He ended up finishing 2nd overall in the 100 and 4th overall in the 200. Not bad!
Meanwhile, back at home, Stoehr took the other boys hiking at Great Falls in the afternoon. Saturday night we watched Battlestar Gallactica together while Kieran was at a birthday party and made taco pizza. Sunday, the boys had their friend come over in the morning to play video games together. In the afternoon there was a huge neighborhood basketball game at their neighbor friend's house, Kohler worked on homework on the front porch (it was warm!), I took some photos for my class, and Stoehr put together the new ping pong table he just bought. That of course resulted in a few ping pong matches between the boys and Stoehr that ended the evening.
