Every year I think things will slow down once school is out for the summer...that is simply not the case...EVER! I always forget about swimteam, practices every day, with swimmeets on Saturdays. It is busier than ever! We love it though. This year it has been amazing to see how far the little guy has come with his swimming. He has been on the swimteam since he was 4 (the kids have to be able to swim the length of the pool without stopping, touching bottom, or hanging onto the lane ropes), and has made a tremendous improvement. The first meet this summer he placed for the first time ever...not only did he place, he placed 1st in two events-breaststroke and mixed relay, and 2nd in two events-freestyle and backstroke. He was so excited to do so well in breaststroke...that was his big brothers stroke when he swam, and he thinks his big brother is the "be all and end all". So sweet.
