Katie won bronze in the 100m breast stroke and gold on the 400m medley relay at the Rio games.
August 30 – Raine begged us all summer to go climbing with her at LifeTime so she could show us how well she was doing. We finally made a family trip to the climbing wall before the kids’ and my memberships expired.
