This weekend Joseph and Peter competed in a club swim meet at our local pool.
We were on deck to cheer and shoot, and one of our great friends, Mike H (often abroad, recently home from Kabul), was able to join us, as were Grandma Billie and Grandpa Cliff.
Teammate & good friend, Jonah's little sister, Maria, participating in her first swim meet, was devastated to have been DQ'd in one of her races. (Joseph and Peter usually DQ in at least one event per meet.) Turns out she correlated the DQ with being accused of cheating! She was so upset. Her parents had the brilliant idea to 'celebrate' her DQ by taking her to DQ (for ice cream). A little ice cream goes a long way sometimes!
