Our Summer Adventure Continues-With Video!!!

What could be more exciting than winning the lottery?  Yep, you guessed it... watching my Olympic hopeful for the 2020 games swim and IMPROVE in his meets.  We had another meet last Saturday, July 3rd, and then our first home meet last night.  Yes, our meet started at 5pm... which was a great time to start yesterday... seeing as it was 99 degrees here with climbing humidity.  So by 5 pm a breeze was at least blowing, and we were off to our pool.  

So rather than go through every detail I will leave you with some pictures and time results. :)  Let's get right to the nitty gritty.  At last Saturday's meet the Monkster improved his time for freestyle by 10 seconds... however his backstroke suffered and his final time was 8 seconds more than his seed time.  Well Wednesday, my boy came. to. swim.  He came in first in his heat for 25M freestyle (fourth overall) , and first in his heat in 25 M backstroke (unsure of the final) .  He also came in fourth in the 100M 6 and under mixed relay (boys and girls) , and also swam the boys 100 M 10 and under relay.  He ROCKED!  Okay, I'm a little biased being his mom... but oh how he has improved in the short time that he has been doing this.  

Here are times - just in case you are interested. :)  Of course, you are interested... who wouldn't be?  Hee Hee.  
25M Free                                                  Seed time 39.46      Final  33.94
100M Mixed 6 and Under                                          3:28.54              3:21.65

the other two events weren't posted by the time we left... so these were the only ones that are accurately written down.   His backstroke went from 49.45 sec (seed time)  to 41. something (final).    I can't wait to see what next Wednesday brings.  It's our last meet for the season before divisionals... and it's at home again.  

 team cheers!

Pull for my Monkey -  I'm going to have to change his nickname from Monkey to something aquatic.... we'll have to think on that one. :)

And one last thing... video... enjoy!!!! And pardon the screaming momma in the background... someone needs to put a leash on that woman.
