Swim Meets

The girls participated in their first swim meets this summer. Last summer Allison did the Stroke Team at the CISD Aquatics Center. This summer Caroline joined as well, and they decided to try the swim meets. They swam in 4 of the 5 meets and had a great time. They both swam the Freestyle Relay, the Freestyle Individual, and the Backstroke. Allison also swam the Breaststroke, which was by far her best stroke. It was such a huge event every week, and the Aquatics Center was just packed with swimmers and spectators. It was always a long afternoon but so much fun to watch them compete. They ended up with several ribbons for placing and participating, and I think it helped make the long practice sessions worth the work!

Way to go girls....these swim meets are verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long, but the smiles on your faces make them very work while. You guys are swimming so well. Very proud of all the progress you have made and I love to see you practice in our pool. Teach me how do the butterfly. I could never do that stroke.

Love you girls.
