The end of the year party for the Brentwood YMCA Seahawks was tonight. They had it outside by the pool, which was a nice change from past years. The kids all got a bunch of ribbons and medals, and Beth won the Point Leader award for 6 and under girls, which was a nice surprise (well, not so nice for Jake, but that’s another story…)
Each of the kids had earned a free ticket to any Six Flags park from some of the reading they had done during the school year, so we went to Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville today and had a great time. It wasn’t crowded at all. Here are some of our pictures:
We rode this ride, the Rainbow, and several hours later it had to be closed down because some had been hurt the same day on the same ride in Sweden:
Jake and Beth do most of their swimming tomorrow, but today was the county championship for 7 and 8 year olds. Jake and Beth each got to swim breast stroke today, because it’s not offered for 6 year olds. Jake also got to swim in a relay. Lauren had her best swimming day ever, winning heat ribbons in 4 of the 6 events in which she competed.
