So for the months of June and July the girls have been going every morning to practice. They've actually become pretty decent swimmers. That's when they decide to use their arms. A few weeks ago Paige told me that she had discovered that she swims FASTEST when she doesn't use her arms. I of course told her very nicely that she was crazy and that she has to use her arms in the swim meets... Well for her last meet she decided to show off her real skillz.
They shoot off the gun and she goes! Then we realize she's not using her arms. I think that was the first time I have ever heard a coach yell "USE YOUR ARMS" she did the whole length without her arms and NO it was not her fastest time.
So in honor of a fabulous summer filled with swimming here are a few pics
So Here is my newest swimmer... I think she's pretty adorable. Yes I am a mean mother and yes that is a swim cap on her head (and goggles) and NO she did not cry at all. She's used to this kind of abuse, I mean have you seen the bows I put this girl in.
Here is Kelly after she swam in a meet. Pretty darn cute if you ask me.
And then there was Paige. She was able to cut 2 minutes off of her backstroke, and she can now make it all the way across the pool. I would probably say that her favorite part has been the socializing.
