You were so cute walking alongside the pool, hand in hand with the other five year olds, taking your place in lane 7!
You jumped in at the beep, and there you went, your bright yellow cap bobbing through the water.
You tried so hard, and had so much fun, and that is what I want to celebrate.
But also, you earned 4th place in freestyle and 2nd place in backstroke! That's awesome!
The funniest part was when you heard the beep for the 11 year old boys' heat before your race, jumped in, and swam 25 yards towards the boys (who didn't know there was a 5 year old girl swimming her heart out toward them!) Then you got out (water polo style of course, no ladder needed), walked around the pool, and took your place for your 25 yard backstroke.
So proud of your effort and your confident attitude!
And your Daddy, he was just beaming at his little water girl. :)
|A fun high dive after practice!|
