    Default Wish us luck this weekend!

    I'm about the take the 2 younger ones to Bentonville, Arkansas for a swim meet. DH will stay home with the oldest. My 12 yo is swimming the 1500 tonight for the first time. Essentially a mile. She is nervous and excited. She loves distance events and her coaches think distance is her strong point. Her cousin holds the world record in the event and when Julia got her USA Swimming Magazine this week, there was a blurb from Kate giving pointers on how to swim the event successfully. We thought that was great timing! Anyway, if you remember around 7 CST to think of Julia, I'd appreciate it!

    Good luck Wilma! I was just going to ask if any one on here does swim teams! I just signed my boys up for the neighborhood one this year, they love it even though they are way behind everyone else on the team! I even took them to the pool this morning to practice, its way harder than it looks!

    Hey, good luck with everything and I think that's kind of nifty that you have a world record holder in your family I'll try to remember to think of your daughter at the right time! Don't forget to let us know how she did!

    I have signed up Noah and his sister for a non-competitive summer swim league that starts in a couple of weeks for 6 weeks. I hope they like it! Noah is giving me the "but I don't want to do thaaaaaaaaaaaaat!" grunts but he never wants to do anything and always end up having a good time anyway. His sister (11) is quite athletic so she's looking forward to it.

    Good luck to Julia, Ann! That's remarkable that her cousin is the world record holder, and it must be inspiring to your daughter. She can follow in some wet footprints!

    She did great! It was miserably hot on Friday night and she swam in the last heat of the evening. A very long, sticky wait. I was sitting with the coaches while she swam and they were keeping track of her times on her 50's. She kept a consistent 43-44 second pace on all of them. She finished with an A time, just 9 seconds from a AA, which, on a mile, is easy to cut. He coach said she rarely such a great perfomance on the first 1500 someone does. When we asked her how she felt after she cooled down she said exhausted and she wants to do it again!

    Yesterday she was exhausted and neither she nor my younger one did as well as they would have liked. But they are well rested for the last session today. Their last event is a 200 IM. I wish it was the first because after being in the heat they will be tired. Fortunately we have a lot of awnings to sit under. I hope we get done early because the drive is much longer than we expected.
