This morning the boys swim team organized a sponsored swim to help raise money for the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Before we headed out the door a little before 8 this morning I said “I will sponsor you each one $ a lap. I was thinking 15 -20 laps each was a reasonable amount to donate. As I sat on the pool deck watching them I quickly realized that I was going to be donating a little more than I had expected!

When they climbed out of the pool they came running over to me to announce that they had each swum 56 laps (52 = 1 mile of our pool). Wow, how amazing that at the ages of 9 and 6 they have the stamina to swim for a little over an hour and cover such great distance. I could not be more proud. They understood what they were raising money for and took their role very seriously.

Needless to say they are spending the rest of the relaxing at home.

They even had the energy after the swim to climb up on the lifeguard chair! Could this be in their future???
