J3: Swim Team

29 Jun

June 2010

Last summer J3 learned to swim.  It was…well, kinda painful

This summer, he jumped right into the pool.  At first we weren’t sure he’d be ready for the first meet, but as soon as practice began we knew he was going to participate all season.  The first meet was a home meet and he took over a minute to get across the pool, but he did it, and he. had. so. much. fun!!!

Here he is, with some of his friends, having fun at the pep rally before the meet:

And here he is swimming his first meet of the season:

For the second meet, he sliced his time to only 40 seconds!!

We could really care less about his time or his performance but we are just so prod to see him work so hard to achieve a goal, and to compete for something.  So many times we give children a reward just for participating, but this is the first time he has had to work for something objective and hard!  And he’s been able to have fun doing it too.  I’m so proud of my little man.
