Swim Team Begins…

Date June 12, 2011

Carson and Alana are both doing swim team this year — the first time for both of them. The first meet — an intra squad affair — was held last Wednesday. Both kids swam in four events and, overall, enjoyed themselves (we’re enjoying the forced improvement of their swimming skills).


Pre-swim body art (it was an intra squad meet, so there was a “green” squad and a “white” squad):

Notice that her goggles are on her forehead for backstroke:

    Warms my heart, needless to say! I can’t wait to watch at least a practice if not a meet.
