My pride and joy

The Juniorette of late has been a very busy bee. She is still swimming 3 times a week, and is now football training 3 times a week. Twice with her normal team, and now once a week with an all girls team. She is really enjoying it all. Last weekend was her last football tournament as an F1 player, in a couple of weeks she becomes an E-Jugend player. She really is becoming a very good defensive player, and has a pretty hard tackle which surprises a lot of the boys.

Last weekend the Juniorette also competed in the Berirksmeisterschaften Bezirk West 2008 (West Hessen) Swim meet in Dillenburg. She improved her times in all the events she competed in, and in her age group she came 4th in 50m backstroke and 5th in the 200m breaststroke.

To top the week off she has just found out her results for her school report. All 1’s with two 2’s. She’s rather pleased with herself and, we are very proud of her. Next week we are off on holiday for 2 weeks to Mallorca. This holiday is really needed, and I believe relaxation will be top of the agenda along with lots of snorkelling and swimming. Only a few more years to go and then the Juniorette will be old enough to learn to Scuba dive – I just wonder if I’ll be able to squeeze back into my wetsuit then :)

I decided it was time to buckle down and get ready. Terrible to be FAT and FIFTY. Instead I've been following Weight Watchers and now in November I will be FIT and FIFTY!!!
Juniorette looks wonderful. What a girl!

Hi Haddock - Of course you are all proud. It's the wonderful part of being a parent, to be proud of little things and more important ones as well. I'm also sure she is grateful for all the support you give her. Have a lovely time on Mallorca!

Okay, so I have to know, how do you raise a kid to be the dynamic? Is it in the food??
