Swim meets!

I am so proud of Olivia!! She has been working so hard on her swimming through swim practice and lessons, and also working on her confidence at being around people she isn't familiar with and doing new things. On Saturday morning at 7:30, Olivia had her first Mock meet. Nicholas stayed home with the boys, and I volunteered to be a timer. So Olivia was much on her own. She did great!! No false starts and she listened and swam well!!

Mock meet on Saturday:

Last night was her first real swim meet! Nicholas took her and I stayed home with the boys. They checked in at 5 and didn't get home until 10!! Intense!!! Olivia did great in every regard! She had fun, was heat winner in freestyle and back stroke, and didn't get disqualified in breast stroke, which she is just learning! The coaches try to make it fun, and last night's theme was "Light Up the Night!" Bless Nicholas for taking her!! Summer swimming is intense--practice two nights a week plus Saturday morning and meets on Tuesday night. I'm not sure how this is going to work once Olivia tracks back in!!

Swim meet yesterday:




  1. Wow! That's so impressive! Yay, Olivia! I can't believe they have kids' swim meets so late, though!

  2. That's awesome!! Yay Olivia!
