First Swim Meet

Saturday, July 5 we left the house around 6:30AM to be at Wolfson High School at 7AM.  Yeah, this is the one thing that really stinks about being part of a swim team.  However, you are done in just a couple of hours and you still have the rest of the day to enjoy.  Brody was pretty excited about the swim meet and Jason and I really didn't know what all we were in store for.

Little brother wasn't too happy to be up so early to watch his brother swim.

The week before at practice, all of the kids were asked what stroke they wanted to swim and Brody chose the freestyle and butterfly.  We were quite shocked about the butterfly but he said he was going to choose the breaststroke but there were other kids doing that so he went with the butterfly.  

He was so ready to swim and yes I was that mom right behind him with the camera.  His first stroke was the freestyle.

He swam the 25M in 26.34 and came in 2nd.

After waiting through the rest of freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke it was time for him to swim butterfly.  When I went up behind him to take pictures, he told me " Michael Phelps"  Yep, big guy you just keep thinking that.  When he chose to swim the butterfly, I pulled up some YouTube videos of Michael Phelps for him to watch the best.

Love this pic of him focusing and getting ready for the race.

And he's off.

 He swam 25M in 31.15 and took 1st place.  We were so proud of him.

This picture cracks me up.  It really shows how Brody gets when he is tired (remember the late 4th of July we had).  I had to get a picture of our 2 swimmers.  Ava's strokes were freestyle and breaststroke.

Needless to say we all came home and the boys took over a 2 hour nap almost immediately.  They were EXHAUSTED!!

Thankfully Brody is enjoying the swimming which makes getting up really early a little easier.
