Wow, June is almost over and I haven’t updated in almost a month. So, here’s a quick run down of how things have gone:
The school is over and I’m glad to be in “summer vacation” mode…
…except that we have been with kids the last few weeks so summer vacation hasn’t really started yet.
My friend Catrina had fractured her arm but was signed up to do the Danskin Triathlon. I decided to help her out by being a part of relay and swimming the 1/2 mile loop in Decker Lake. Even just breast stroking, I swam it in 27 minutes, 43 seconds. Our final team time was 2 hours, 8 minutes and 52 seconds. Out of 106 relay teams, we ranked 75. Not bad for only 2 weeks notice of being in a relay! I enjoyed the swim and think I might just have to do more swimming like that….
After school ended, we had a few rehearsals and headed to the great State of Hawaii. Aloha! Pictures are available on my Flickr.
I got back from Hawaii and got AT&T U-Verse installed. I am enjoying it immensely! Especially since there is an iPhone App so I can program my DVR from anywhere.
We had our Squad Leader training sessions for Welcome Week that starts on Monday. The leadership played through the opener and we’re pretty stoked about next year’s show.
The Texas Drum Corps Preview was last night and again, I had the honor of being the MC. Every corps was better than last year! I’d like to welcome Memphis Sound (to become Forte in 2010) to Texas, too.
Welcome Week starts on Monday and goes all next week from 8 am – 12 noon. Once that’s over, Summer Vacation will officially start!!!!
So, that’s it. It’s been pretty non-stop but we’ve had an amazing trip. The pictures are foldered by day and there are quite a few captions to say where we were each day.
Happy Father’s Day
to all the great dad’s out there!
