Well...not really. The hours at the pool are mostly swim team related—lots of morning practices and evening meets. My boys love being a part of our wonderful neighborhood team! And the projects we’re tackling involve building, painting, shopping, sorting, cleaning, organizing, etc. Add to this all of the writing-related things I have going on, plus planning lessons for my church’s Vacation Bible School next week and preparing for an upcoming conference where I will be working with kids (mixing books, Bible stories, and writing—sounds fun, doesn’t it?). It's no wonder that I am feeling a bit crazy these days. It’s all fun stuff, though!
So while I am not writing as much as usual these days, I am most definitely gathering life experiences to use in my writing one day. And when I do find a few hours to work, I make it really count. In July, things *should* settle down a bit, and I’m looking forward to catching up on my writing, reading, and relaxing. Until then, I am going to "just keep swimming," like Nemo's friend Dory so wisely says.
