Swim Meet

#1 and #2 had their first swim meet on saturday morning. it was 47 degrees when we left for the pool. They both play soccer and think it is their job to run 5 feet behind whoever has the ball. Swimming was similar for these two. They both get their moneys worth by enjoying the pool for longer than their competitors, but they both had a great time. #1 did the freestyle, the breaststroke, the backstroke and the butterfly (which turned into the breaststroke after a few meters). #2 did the freestyle and only had to stop and hold onto the lane lines a few times in her long 25 meter swim. This is the first year for either of them to do this so it is a growing experience for all of us. I could swim well enough to get my swimming merit badge when i was 13 but that is about it. Megan did swim team growing up so she understands this a little more than me. It was fun to see them swim and we have several meets throughout the summer so we will see how they progress. Somehow none of our kids have been given an ounce of competitive nature yet and i don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing at this point.
