See these people...
this is a group of very cool people. (I'm referring to the rest of the group, not me...althought I was pretty cool swimming backstroke the other day...that is not what this post is about. ;) )
This picture was taken at Drew's swim meet last week. All of the people in this picture drove out to an "away" meet when it was about 60 degrees and rainy to see Drew swim his little heart out for about one minute.
And, for some of the people in this picture, the "away" meet was really AWAY! My cousin and his wife drove in from Michigan with their son and his girlfriend (who live in Indiana) to watch Ben and Jack play baseball Monday night and to see Drew swim on Tuesday night. Can you believe that? I mean, it is not like seeing Michael Phelps swim, or Derek Jeter play baseball. They are 7 year olds!! In addition to that, obviously Jen packed up 3 babies to come see Drew swim and my mom and dad, and Spencer's mom, of course, are fabulous about hitting as many swim meets and baseball games, and soccer games, and school shows as possible.
I want to be more like these people. It is so easy to get wrapped up in our busy lives and forget about what is really important in life.... swim meets and baseball games....not the laundry sitting in a pile at home, or a silly game on Facebook.
Thanks for the reminder.
