Johan had his 7th birthday today! It was pretty low-key, being on a Wednesday and all. I joined him at school for lunch (croissants with tomato and pesto). He chose not to go to swimming, so we pretty much hung around the house until dinner.

There's a new hobby sweeping the Cameron-Jin household: Youtube art tutorials. While drawing has always been a popular hobby in our house, it's really gone to a new level. The other day Young-Hoon and I were talking about maybe trying to find an art class for the kids when I did a quick google search which lead me to a plethora of art tutorials online. Since Johan is really into trying to draw Pokemon characters at the moment, I chose one and called the kids in. The result was a shock to me! Below are some of their drawings with their favorite singled out.

Today the kids had their second (of 3) long course meets. They had a birthday party to go to after, so they decided to swim in the fist few events, which happened to be a lot of what they did at last month's meet. Even so, they cut time off! Here's the breakdown:
50 free: 54:41 seconds. he cut off 2.5 seconds since last month!
50 breast: 1:09.54. not only was this is the first time he got a time, but he cut off over 6 seconds from last month (when he was DQed for not touching the wall with 2 hands at the finish line) Let me just say, this is a very good time for a 6 year old!
50 free: 39.53 seconds. This was fast enough to earn her her very first BB time! She was beyond excited! Next stop A!
50 breast: 59.38. This was her first time swimming this in long course, and she earned a B time.
100 back: 2:02.74. Irene's not a huge backstroke fan, and she only swam this so we could get to the party, but she did great! she is about 3 seconds off of a B time. Not bad!
50 free: 48:78. He was less than a second slower on this one, but it was a great time!
50 breast: 1:10.56. He shaved off a fraction of a second on this one since last month. His form is looking better and he's improving. He was also informed today that as of Monday, he will be a member of the Bronze Advanced team with Irene!
