Thursday's is Swim and Gym

 Every Thursday is Swim and Gym.  We always show up at 3:00 to go swimming.  No more mommies in the pool which is really nice, changing cloths always took forever, and when Mommy was in the pool Holly wants to play rather then learn.  Though on Thursdays she doesn't really learn like she does in her private lesson, but she gets to be more independent and practice her skills from Monday.  Then is is time for the Mommies to go to a parent Group and the kids go to Kindergym, Childwatch, and now the Family Gym on alternating weeks.  They always start off with a snack and then they play.

These pictures are from the Swim and Gym splash party.  A special weekend event for all of the families that have ever been in swim and gym.  It was fun to see friends whom we hadn't seen for months like Simon, and other friends like Olivia and Citlali whom we see more often.  Daddy also got to swim with Holly which is a special treat for him.  After swimming we had a pizza party.  Both before and after we hung out and played with friends in Kindergym.  It was a fun afternoon at the YMCA.

Hello Vicki,

My name is Christopher Wienberg and I’m a student at the University of Southern California (USC). My advisor, Dr. Andrew Gordon, and I are currently researching weblogs and yours came to our attention.

We’re interested in talking to bloggers who update their blogs frequently and write about the occurrences of their everyday lives. Would you be interested in chatting with me about your blog? If you choose to participate, we’ll set up a time to hang out with you in your hometown.

As part of this study, we’re also filming a documentary to bring attention to the human, and relatable, side of our research, and we would like to film the conversation I have with you. Your inclusion in the documentary is completely voluntary, and we would never film or record you without your permission.

If you want more information, I can be emailed at or called at (310) 448-5361. You can also contact my advisor, Dr. Andrew Gordon, via email at Our address is included at the bottom of this email. Lastly, you might want to get in touch with Sonia Pineda. Sonia will produce the documentary portion of this study and can answer a lot of your questions. She can be reached at or (310) 359-9636.
