Summer Days ... Drifting Away

It's been a packed summer for us, and we're kind of sad to see it go. Lilia had her first day of preschool today, and Melissa will be going to preschool in a week. I'd say summer is officially over, but Kulani says we need one more Labor Day barbecue and then we'll officially call it over. To recap, this summer we ...

  • Went to Hawaii for a week.

  • Lilia played on her first T-ball team: the Bears (not so much bad news)

  • Kulani competed in the Hawaii Half Ironman, Provo Olympic tri, Echo Reservoir tri, Spudman tri, and Jordanelle Olympic tri.

  • Cindy did Hawaii Half and Spudman.

  • Lilia ran in the Provo Freedom Days fun run, with me, Lissy, and Nohea chasing after her in the stroller. We couldn't keep up. She got 2nd in her age group.

  • Kulani ran close to Steve Young in the Freedom Days 10K. Oh, if we could only bottle his sweat!

  • Went camping with our new tent a total of five times. We took nephew Hekili with us one time so he could get his Webelos badge.

  • Attended the awesome McEuen family reunion.

  • We put our American Fork Fitness Center membership to good use by going swimming often (see video)

But now we are bushed. We enjoyed spending the summer with those of you we did. In general, we didn't have as many visitors to our house. Perhaps we haven't been hospitable enough. Please forgive. We are anxiously awaiting the coming of BYU football season. We can smell it in the air already. We got family season tickets thanks to Kulani's "faculty" status. Our seats are near Uncle Fred's and Amy&Nate's. Soon, our family will dominate the whole south end zone. For now, it's time for a nap.

C-ster, I wish I could bring Minnie over and go swimming with you all. She loves to swim and loves to go underwater. She has absolutely no fear of water, except that she won't jump in, but once she's in, she's under. Your girls are so big -- and I've only seen Nohea once in person. Dang -- I need to move closer! In a few years maybe...

Mary, They've closed down all public swimming pools around here for children under 5 years old due to some weird outbreak that causes people to have diarhea. Kulani caught it too. So far, the rest of us have been okay. But that means no swimming for us for a while. Dang kids in diapers!
