Doesn't he look excited?
So lessons have ended for the school year and we were surprised to find out that middle schools here don't do strings instruments. *sigh* So he can either choose a brass instrument or get private cello lessons...
In the meantime he is preparing to try out for swim team on June 1 and we have been going to the Y a couple of times a week in the wee hours of the morning to swim laps. I feel like I'm emanating chlorine, but I'm proud of his perseverance.
And I suppose the swimming is doing me good on the weight loss front. I've finally found a routine that I can stick to and an eating program that works for me. I've lost 9 lbs (woo. toss the confetti) and gained some muscle tone. 1/3 of the way there!
