Evelyn made Invitationals for the swim team. Each year the kids pick names for their "Secret Psyche" and and secretly give each other gifts during the week preceding the final meet. Evelyn's Secret Pysche left notes on our driveway and really fun gifts for her almost daily.
She loved coming home to new surprises....
....and more notes on the driveway!
At the Invitational Meet her Secret Psyche was revealed! Thanks for making her week so much fun, Corinne!
Preparing to swim
She swam 25 meter freestyle and butterfly. Here she is about to swim the first leg in the final 150 meter freestyle relay as Kendall cheers her on.
Well done Ev!
The poster and sunglasses were more gifts from Corinne that Ev found waiting for her at the pool the morning of the meet.
Spending the summer at swim practices and meets with you Glabs has been a wonderful highlight for our family. You're the greatest!! We love you!

Please keep this group in your prayers this week as they head down to serve at Rancho 3M Christian Orphanage and School in Guadalupe, Mexico.
Have a great time, girls. I miss you already!

I think Evelyn has found her favorite thing to do - swim. Kim encouraged me to sign Evelyn up for swim team this summer and it's been a great source of delight for her. She is more than willing to get up early for practice every morning no matter how cold the water is. As long as she's in it, she's happy.
Evelyn was thrilled at a recent meet when both Elise and Garrett came to cheer her on.
Christiana and Evelyn: joined at the hip. You almost never see one without the other.
All the Glab girls are fantastic swimmers, but I particularly enjoy watching Kendall swim. She's a powerhouse swimmer.

Kendall at the end of a race, completely spent. She went on to win the 50 m breastroke.
Janelle and Kendall have played on a summer league basketball team together, but Kendall missed their last game to swim at the meet. Janelle came by after her game to root for her buddy (and her little sister.)
Ev, I love watching you work so hard at swimming. I love getting up early and heading to the pool with you while your sisters are still sleeping. And I love watching you compete at swim meets with such diligence.
(Thanks for taking our picture, Christiana.)
