Finally summer is here! Friday was my last day of school, but I skipped so I could hang out with my friend Michaela, because she was moving (a couple of days ago L). I had so much fun! I hope she has fun in South Africa, but I am going to miss her like crazy!!


Over the past Christmas my family went on a ski trip, and we met this family on a van from the airport up to the hotel, and we have become really good friends with them! They have two kids named Alex, who is 11, and Michael, who is 6.  Yesterday was THE BEST day of summer yet!!  I babysat them yesterday and we had a blast!! Crabbing, skimboarding, bodyboarding... and the gulf was perfect!

Two days ago wasn't the best day of summer…  I went to swim practice from 7 until 9, and then I went to breakfast with my brother and dad. That was probably the most interesting part of the day! J !!!! After I got home I watched a little T.V. and ate a little, and then I started to get bored. I thought maybe the first real day of summer would be SUPER exciting and fun, but right now school doesn’t seem so bad! Anyway, I {accidentally} told my mom that I was bored, and that made her pretty mad. “Walk the dogs” she said, “ Fold the towels, make a summer menu, and work on your blog” she said/yelled.

 Next week I am going to be going up to Birmingham to see all of my mom’s side of the family! I can’t wait to see all of my cousins (ALL 7 OF THEM), uncles and Aunts, and my grandparent! AND my mom, my mom's cousin, and me vs. my dad, my brother, and my uncle in the Buster Britton Tri this weekend! It is going to be AWESOME!! And the girls will rule!

Today I went to swim practice, and it was so so so much fun! It was recovery day, even though I didn't have much to recover from. Anyway, we had 11 people in my lane (long course), and everybody except one person chose a set that equaled 400 meters! Man, it was awesome! My set was 50 meters of freestyle drill, 25 meters of tiger tumble (3 strokes of freestyle then a flip turn in the middle of the pool), and then sprint freestyle 25 meters (4 times through). It was really fun! Then after swim practice I went for a run, and I was all pumped because I just got new inserts for my shoes. I wanted to go really fast for 2 miles, but I got some mean blisters instead...ooooh do they hurt!! 

Here are some of my pictures of the week…

Thanks for reading! 


  1. The Tiger Tumble sounds fun! Wish I could flip turn, I'll have to try that.

  2. Don't ever make the mistake of telling an adult you are bored. You always have the blog.

  3. Flatout Jim is my hero.

  4. Hi Chloe! I noticed that you are a new follower on my blog! Yay! You must have 'found' me through "big Chloe" right? :o) It's totally awesome to interact with other FL triathletes and I'll definitely be following along in your triathlon adventures. You are SO lucky to have found this wonderful sport so early. Good stuff!!! Happy summer to you!
