The move, part 4 - swim team

One of the reasons the girls stayed behind with us while Adam and Jill left for Wisconsin was so that Hannah and Sophia could finish up swim team.  League finals were the Saturday following the move!

It was a hot day.
Igloo icees are so good on a hot day!

So are spray bottles!

Lathering up!

Between swim events the kids hang out....

These two challenged each other!

Coach dressed up for last day

It was a L O N G day since there were so many teams!
Claire did pretty good actually!  But she did get tired!

Their team won the league championship this year!
After the meet was over, all the kids jumped into the pool.

I let Claire get in the shallow part.
Saying goodbyes

Should have caught a few more "last hugs"!

It has been such fun to follow the team this past summer as they've traveled to various towns.

 How Claire spends her time at the meets

lot of eating - LOTS
                                                                            resting on her pillow
                                                                    (she helped her sister make it)

                                        hugs too

Granted, there were a few times when she had had it.  Even if we brought along lots of things to occupy her time.  There were tears sometimes.  But some of the places had parks right by where she could play and that was fun.  Not easy being the youngest!

A few mornings were rather chilly!
Some of these photos are mine but some I snagged off the team fb page.
There was one lady who took lots of photos and generously shared them! 

Cheering them on...

The family is so good at encouraging eachother!

We were glad that Mindy and Jason could come to watch one time.  They live pretty far away so it was a treat.

And the Arkansas cousins came once too!

Before we left town that last meet, we stopped to say good-bye to the house.

Good-bye rooms!

Good-bye hugs for the trees!

Stopped at one of the friends' homes for last byes.
Because it was a long day, we decided to go out to eat.  The children are used to eating chicken without bones.  We told them chicken tastes best cooked with bones.  We took them to KFC.

"Nana, this is like a science project!" was the comment made by Hannah.  They were just a little grossed out but did admit it tasted okay.  Ha!
