First Week of Summer

Keir school officially ended on June 25th, so the following week was his first day of summer.
It was a full week, he had Golf Camp (yes he chose Golf camp as his camp for the summer) and swim team started off on Wednesday as well. Throw in soccer on Tuesday and you can see that by the end of the week he was pretty tired (but has he been sleeping more....not so much, he has been getting up earlier an earlier but that is another story for another blog!)
Jen and I were a little worried about Keir's choice of Golf Camp, we were thinking that Keir's 6yr old attention span and golf might not be a great fit. But for the most part he enjoyed himself. It was a week long camp from 9 till 12, culminating with the camp playing 9 holes of golf on friday!
Typical Keir when asked what his favorite part of the camp was he said it was when he got to drink Coke on the BBQ on friday. This was the first time ever he drank Coke, so I guess it was a big deal.

Lest you think this blog is all about Keir, here is one of my all time favorite pictures _ever_

Swim Meet

Quick post here, today was Keir's swim meet here in Manotick. This is the second year he has done swim team @ Manotick and every summer they have a swim meet. The swim team is called the Manotick Marlins. Keir swims in the 6 and under catagory, which is an advantage to him as he is probably one of the older 6 year olds on his team. Keir has really enjoyed swim team this year and swimming in general (we have been at the pool a lot this summer).
Keir swam in the 25m freestyle, 25m backstroke, and the 25m breaststroke and he did really well (1st, 2nd, and 1st), he also won a medal for best 6year old swimmer! He was pretty happy, but most importantly he really enjoyed himself.
