Swim Team















Satch and Em were both in swim team again this summer. They have practice every morning, and swim meets on the weekends...not Emmy anymore I guess. It is awesome and Satch and Em have become great swimmers, and by the end of the summer are sporting some neon green hair...anyone have any remedies for that. Anyway Satch had a swim meet last Saturday. It was pure torture for Emmy. Satch did really well. He got a 2nd place ribbon in freestyle, a 3rd in backstroke, and two 4ths, one in breastroke, and one in a relay he did with three other boys. Every kid gets a ribbon for each event they take part in. Last year at their first meet Satch was so disappointed when he got out of the water and was given a purple ribbon. He tried to be tough and hold it together, until his next event when he took 5th place which happened to be a pink ribbon. I could see it coming...and was hoping he would slow down just a tad. He stepped out of the water and started sobbing. I felt bad for him, but it was a little funny.

Jealous! Austin can make it across the pool in about 10 minutes with his life jacket on. And that's top speed. Tell satchy that pink was way manly in the 80s.

I am so proud of Satch. Lilly can't even swim yet. When she sits in her little swim tube she doesn't even kick the legs. She is emotionless when she is swimming. Satch will you give her some pointers when you come visit?!

Awesome that he (and Poor Emmy) swim so well. Awesomer that a pink ribbon was so traumatic.
I've decided we've got to start the whole swim lessons thing this summer. I just can't imagine that my kids are old enough to take lessons, especially since I remember taking them myself so clearly. Crazy!

After all my years of competitive swimming my kids turn out to be water sissies! I'm jealous!
