Samantha had a busy summer....especially by a pool.  She spent most days at Burlingame Aquatics either teaching kids how to swim and as a lifeguard.  She recently returned from Columbus, Ohio where she attended the Jewish teen olympics representing the peninsula. This was her first swim meet and she came home with medals.

Aiden, ‘20
Traveled to Germany with my dad to visit our relatives. While in Iceland, swam in the Blue Lagoon; I’m pictured in Iceland at midnight!
