there are three high school sports seasons. Very few sports exist in more than one season. Women's Swim is Fall, Men's is Winter. Women's WP is Spring, Men's is Fall. There is always club swimming, but not High School. But Hebe is done with competitive swimming

Hockey is Winter, that's why Hector doesn't swim. You can only do one sport per season in the main.

OK I lied. Now I'm done. I did post this in the brag thread, but dammit I'mm'a post it twice..... The End Of Season banquet was tonight and we learned Hebe made All American. That means the top 100 in the country in each event. Her medley relay team at states made it. (They were 2nd at States) So she will have her name on a plaque on the wall at the school

They should have another plaque with your name on it.

They might do that if I donate like a bajillion dollars or something....

if we magically win the lottery, I think we should make a huge donation on the condition they name the pool the beestmonster pool that would be cool. Although I like The Bird Bath, as it's currently known (they are Eagles). The River Rats' pool across town is the Ratatorium and the pioneers have the Hill pool, after their amazingly long-serving coach

First morning practice of the last polo season for polo-girl today. I was amused that across the quiet of the house at 5am, I could hear the "dink dink dink" of her cutting her fingernails -mandatory in polo-. It inspired me to butcher the Song of Songs....

Rise up, my love, my aquatic one,
And come away, for behold, the winter is past,
The snow is over and gone.
Potholes appear in the roads,
The time of polo has come,
And the sound of the nail clippers
Is heard before dawn.

"composed" is a little generous. I changed a few words. And before tea ...kinda -the idea hatched then, but harvested just now, after a few beers
