PHOTO: Yearly photo of Matt and Ali at Angels Sing Concert. The last one...at the end of the school year they graduate and will return to sing with the alumni for their annual yearly number at this concert, but it won't be the same ever again. A lot of "lasts" this year. I'm handling it tolerably well. Sort of. Okay, I admit, there were a few tears about this when they finished posing.
READING: Christmas cards and letters! While many a joke is made over yearly Christmas letters, I have to say, I absolutely love, love, love them. All of them.
SWIMMING NEWS: Matt has an unprecedented three days off from swim practice...he is enjoying sleeping in and staying up late, a rare treat for him. Three WHOLE DAYS...I wonder if he will still know how to swim at the end of it. (Just kidding around about that part.)
Photo is of Reyn (Matt's girlfriend), Matt, and Ali at Angels Sing Concert last Saturday night. Reyn and Ali had been swimming at a meet for two days straight. Ali was swimming, singing, and taking finals at school. Matt was only singing and taking finals. They are all happy to be on break from school. Singing is on break until after the holidays. And, they will all three be back in the water for swimming on Monday. For all they manage to do, our hats are off to all three of them. It's a pleasure to know them and follow around in their wakes!
