What do you want to do this summer?

Summer is about a month away, and in honor of those gloriously long and lazy days, I normally don't set any specific goals or take myself too seriously. But this year, I made one: to learn how to swim better. It's not to say that I haven't tried—in high school I was on the swim team for approximately... 3 days. Ha ha. I hate to admite it, but I think I have just a little bit of ImGonnaDrownandNoonesGonnaSee phobia. Alan's an excellent swimmer, and I've always been jealous of him floating effortlessly in the water while I wade in ankle deep or cling to the side of the pool. He's promised to help me this year, but only if I first learn how to "just relax" in the water. (Which seems to be so much easier said than done!)

What's on your summer to-do list? Are you a good swimmer, a bad one, or did you improve?

Good goal! I'm a pretty good swimmer but I have to plug my nose to go under water. Otherwise I just like to swim around or float on my back. I haven't been in a pool in WAY TOO LONG! :P

As for my summer plans I'm going to be visiting Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland! Can't wait. :)

That sounds so fun! I've been dying to re-visit Vancouver -- I haven't been since I was a little kid, but I remember it was a really cool place.
