February 2016 – Family Updates

Filed under: Lilah and Luke — dave9169 @ 7:14 pm

February Highlights:

  • Luke inches past Lilah in height (he’s about 1/4 of an inch taller, but Lilah reminds him she can still beat him up pretty easily)
  • Lilah is among one of a select few to receive the first set of student of the month awards handed out by her new school
  • Luke hits the jumps on his new snowboard at Mountain High
  • Lilah wins her event (50 yard breaststroke) at the first swim meet of the season
  • Have fun testing out a new camera on Spike

Lilah Winning Meets and Awards

It’s back to swim season again for Lilah and she made the best of it by winning her individual event, the 50-yard breast stroke in a time of 38.65. Nobody else was even close, but the thing she was the happiest about was that her time is nearly 4 seconds faster than the time she started the season with last year. This means that if she continues to work hard she’ll be much faster by the end of the season. It was nice to see her so happy and glowing after the event. She didn’t even mind me taking pictures of her for once. Normally, her smile would have disappeared the moment she saw me pointing the camera at her but this time she had no control over her sunshiny disposition, leaving me free to capture her happy moment.
