Saturday, our swim team had the annual awards banquet. We all got to eat and visit and spend some time together. The swimmers got their awards for their accomplishments for this year. Michaela got most improved girl for her age group.
This picture is of the swimmers who survived Grinch Week back in
December when they had two a days for a week. The t-shirts are their
gift for surviving such a gruesome work out schedule that week. I
created the design for the t-shirt.
Group picture of our swimmers that went to "state" (area championship meet).
And a couple of just fun shots.
n one of our local parks there is a monument for all lost children.
This was started by one of our local news casters after she had a
miscarriage. It was erected about 2 years before I lost my child. I
have often thought of buying a brick for the baby I lost and for a while
I couldn't figure out why I hesitated. But, as I've learned about
myself I realized I am just too private a person when it comes to grief.
I don't like to have it out in the open. So, although there is no
actual brick at the monument for my child, I still feel a connection
with him when I go there. My feet still belong amongst these bricks and
it does bring comfort on those times when I still grieve and miss him.
