We got home from Key West about three weeks ago, and dove right into the summer swim season. Two days after we pulled in, my boys were swimming in their first meet.
I love to see how hard these kids work all summer. No lazy summer mornings around here - we're at the pool by 8:00 every day. And thank goodness these boys love it, 'cause nobody wants to get up early in the summer!
They're getting really good, too. Their times are improving with every meet and I love to see the increase in their stamina. Jake even swam his first 100 meter race last night. Against 11- and 12-year-olds! Despite being so nervous - and so tired by the end - he made it. And this is one proud mama!
Jake's relay team. What a great group of boys!
Our little competitor. Cam wants those ribbons so bad - and works hard to get them!
Swim team is not for the faint of heart. Or the tired. We may start practice at 8 am, but don't be surprised to find us at a meet until well after dark. 10 pm with little ones? No problem. (Not my favorite part.)
