June 10 on 10: Olympian Ian Crocker and the Eau Claire Kids Triathlon

Saturday was super exciting!!  First my daughter attended a swim clinic with olympic gold medalist and former world record holder, swimmer Ian Crocker!   It was awesome!  He was so good with them and his story was very inspiring for the kids and for me!   Then my son did his first triathlon!  It was fun to watch.  Every time my kids do a sporting event I get more nervous than I would if I were doing it myself.  I guess it’s a mom thing.   I took pics of him biking and swimming but during the final stretch of the run I was too choked up and busy cheering to get any good shots, lol.  So proud of him and so great to see him giving it his all!

My daughter and one of her good friends from swim team were kind enough to pose for a practice shot.

Not an easy winter for our driveway.

This lone leaf somehow survived the winter.

Apparently today was an ideal day to fly a “kite”.   You can barely see it behind her with all the white snow.
