A note on the weather

You know how we had the torrential downpour this morning? It stopped after just about 2 hours and the sun came out. Yes, this caused it to become super-hot and really muggy. The boys noticed and commented on the high humidity. Everyone was a bit sweaty and sticky as we walked around, and appreciative when the evening came around and the temperature was a bit more moderate.

In the evening, some of the Brothers (Alex, Olaf, and Forrest) went to swim and the rest went to play in the rec center. I went with the swimmers and we had a grand time, estimating the size of the pool to be on the order of 5 or 6 Piedmont Pools. When we found out this was just the crummy outside pool and that the "real" competitive pool was indoors we were doubly impressed. We swam in the deep end and also dived off the 1 meter and 3 meter boards.

After a while, the pool was cleared on account of a thunderstorm rolling into the area. We played a few games of "Drop 4" on a jumbo set they had by the pool. Olaf beat everyone handily, me included.

We met back at the rooms and got everyone to sleep after some time. Tomorrow, the instant challenge awaits!
