I publicly embarrassed the older girls with this picture. Everything I do seems to embarrass them at this age!
Lydia, Jessica and Elaina are members of our swim team, Gators. This is our first year to participate in our local swim team and it is a blast! The girls were in shock the first day of practice. It’s swimming boot camp! They practice every morning and are swimming in six swim meets competing against other teams.
The girls’ first meet was Saturday. They were doing warm ups in the water at 6:30 AM Saturday morning! It was in the 50’s and the water was very cold after a week of chilly, rainy nights!
Jessica trying to warm up between races.
Elaina was sooooooooo cold that she did a shiver dance while waiting to swim her relay race!
Between races we wrapped Elaina in blankets. Her head was even covered. She stayed there in a ball until her next race. She did great at the backstroke, winning her heat. She brought home a First Place Ribbon! Even though she was miserably cold she did not complain once. She even said she had a great time!
Jessica did well swimming the breaststroke!
Lydia is really being challenged! She’s already improved a great deal. She seems to love to get out there and work hard. She had to swim 500 meters this morning without stopping. (our city pool is 25 meters long)
Eat My Bubbles,
Kiss My Toes,
Watch How Fast This Gator Goes!
