Joyful Days: Giving So It Feels Good!


What a great couple of days for swimming! Sawyer has been steadily improving his diving skills and got to dive Varsity Thursday night, pretty fun for a seventh grader.

He finally nailed his inward dive and I must say his reaction was priceless as he saw the scores from the judges… His highest score ever… crazy that he would get it on his most challenging dive.

He took 4th overall and broke one hundred points with a score of 100.3.

I really have enjoyed this sport as they are so great at cheering each other on and applauding the winners as well as the last swimmer in every heat. Love that!!


I have not had much time creating the past few days…

Yesterday we started working on a fundraiser for Tom’s brother John who was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in the fall. He is very brave in his battle… He just received his Doctorate Degree in Psychology a few days before getting his diagnosis. Sadly he is uninsured and along with fighting for his life, he has a major financial battle ahead of him. His family and friends are pulling together to host a fundraiser for them and I will be coordinating the silent auction. Let me know if you know of anyone who would like to donate.

As we were planning yesterday, we started talking about what each person would do in our group… Not everyone is comfortable in every role. I responded that we want people to Give so it feels good, not until it hurts. This is something I have been trying to teach my children. Giving should make you feel great! We want everyone to feel Good about helping, but not to be in a role that they are uncomfortable.


We are off and running to hockey today. I hope your day is filled with joy!
🙂 Kris
