Summer camp is over and it's bittersweet. I get to sleep in for a few days before school starts and can get some things done around the house. I always enjoy driving the shuttle bus and hanging out with the folks at camp, and I will miss that. It's a nice change of pace from the school year and replaces the coaching money I earn during the school year. It has cooled down a bit here in the sunny South and there hasn't been as much sun as usual. The Olympics are winding down, and the United States teams have done well. As a matter of fact, I heard that if the US women were a country, they would be third in the medal count, behind the US and China. Not too shabby.
