NSR: Swimming

I just wanted to take a minute to share my good news.  My son qualified for Junior Olympics and the Elite meet this year for swimming.  A goal he set over 15 months ago,  I am so super excited to see him reach it.

Both of my sons swam great, but Carson on the left made the time cuts. This is them looking up at me from the stands.  Little do they know I am their BIGGEST fan.

this was before one of his races- Hard to see but he is there!

He made Junior Olypics in the 200 Back and 200 Freestyle and is very very close in 2 more events.   Here he is showing Mom no excitement!  it was a really early 4:45 wakeup!

No Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference for me…I’ll be at the Elite meet in New Jersey watching my son swim!  WOOOHOOOO.  I’ll miss my stamping girlfriends a lot, but this is just so awesome!

Thanks for letting me share the news!!

    That is so awesome!! My kids are swimmers, too, and I love reading your updates about your kids from a fellow swim mom perspective. Congratulations on the times – sure makes all those early morning meets every weekend and never ending practices during the week worth every bit of effort!!
