  6. This is true, but you can get by with having other team parents help to take your kids during weekdays. Team parents that are available during weekdays are very nice and are willing to let kids hitch rides all the time. The kids become good friends. Wife & I both work full time, so we swing by after work if the meets are close by and watch the remainder of the meets. Big events usually take place on weekends so we're available to go for the whole thing. We return the favors to other parents by taking their kids on the weekends while they run errands etc. You're right; It's difficult to be on your own when your kids swim, but we've been able to manage it for the last 6-7 years. The excitement & memory of your kids swimming while teammates cheer are priceless!
  7. My kids did/done/do (not sure which verb to use, 'cause all 3 apply ) swim team, but not until HS age for their respective high school. However, there are a few local teams ranging from Elementary - High school ages, but these are not affiliated with any of the schools. These local teams are somewhat private, but funded by parents paying fees to be on the team. They train swimmers to go all the way to National Championships as well as Olympics so they are very competitive. We didn't do that. Our kids simply join the HS swim team to compete with other regional high school teams. Travel distance to these competition ranges from 5 miles to 100 miles; depending on how good the kids are and whether they make Sections and move on to the next round. Swimming is not an easy sport for parents. Swim meets are long and looooonger... because you have to wait for your kids' turns (events, heats etc...) and their turns may be spotty on the schedule. One heat may be very early on and the other may be near the end and you have to wait for your turn to do all the heats assigned to you. Also, the coaches don't like kids leave early when they're all done with their heats. They have to stay until the end of the meets in order to cheer for their teammates. Anyway, swimming is an excellent sport! You don't have to worry about injuries as much as the other contact sports and swimming is a lifetime skill that can save oneself or others' lives. Although the swim meets are long, wife, me, and the kids all enjoy it. We make it a family's tradition to go out for a nice dinner local to the meet location before heading back home. At the end of the school year, the swim team will have a very nice banquet (cater or potlucks) for the swimmers where awards, medals, jacket letter, and recognition are handed out. Do encourage your kids to try the swim team and you too will enjoy it. Good luck!

      Hello Nancy,

      I'm not looking for a trade.  I'd like to sell only.  Thank you.

  9. @knightfox3: Sorry to hear about your pet. We too try to keep things like this in the back of our minds, but having pets is hard when you know there will be that DAY. It's hard to think about it so we all try to enjoy the company with our pets for as long as we can. We found 2 stray (or lost) cats in our yard all beat up, skinny, and afraid. It took us awhile to get them to know us by leaving food/water and then walk away for them to come eat/drink. After a few weeks of doing that, we got both of these cats to come to us and they do love us; not only for the food/water sometimes, but just for our love & care for them. We took them in for examinations & shots and now these 2 guys are ours and they're living a happy life. The more we spend time with them, the more difficult it is to think of the DAY. I've always told myself that the day will come, but whatever we have or can do for these pets it'll always be remembered by us and by the pets too.
  10. This looks good, but it takes an hour to cook wheat berries! It's going to be a weekend project. Probably going to just have some fruits and nuts today as I'm short on time - too many meetings.
  11. California egg benedics lined with tomatoes + red onion and topped with avocado, sided by hash brown, bacon, and then I added a full side of onion rings; I probably overdid it, but couldn't help myself

    Wow, that blows! Mine is Electrical and it seems to be correct. I'd email the board asking them to redo and make it right. On the bright side, when the board sends you a corrected version, you Civil Engineers will have a limited version to hang on to and that's a great thing!

    See what you've done? Now, you leave me no choice but to expand that PE gear arsenal. I will get one for my boat too... that is, when I can afford one

    Waiting is over for the wall cert., but the feeling of being a new PE lasts and lasts. If I don't know it any better, I think it's made me a little younger . Perhaps, I should change my handle to YoungenEngineer Hope you get yours soon or already. Now I'm just waiting for plastic credit card thingy to complete my arsenal of PE gears.

    The small wallet sized paper cert arrived about a week before the wall certificate. However, the credit card size (plastic?) has not arrived yet. So are we supposed to get 3 things: paper wallet size cert, wall cert, and then plastic credit card? Believe it or not; I didn't have time to go get the frame this last weekend. I spent the entire weekend celebrating with family for my new accomplishment, the PE I had a great time showing the wall cert to everyone. I figured to let them touch the embossed gold seals. Seriously though, I should not procrastinate with the frame. Got it on my to-do list for the next weekend.
