Swim Meet

Two of my girls, a & R, are swimming this summer on a team.  This is our first foray into swimming competitively.  Gotta love first experiences. :)

They started practice this week and had their first meet tonight.  I am disappointed that I couldn't be there for them but we decided between the heat, the amount of people going to be there and the small pool decking at the pool we were going to be at, it was best I stayed home w/ the three youngest while hubby took the three oldest.  Here are some pictures hubby took of the chaos.

Standing room only!

Here's the crazy thing about this meet, these are all kids and their families from the same team!  Tonights meet was a practice/time trial type meet to get the kids (and the parents) familiar with what they are to expect on a meet night and to get the times down for future meets so they know who will be swimming in each event. There are over 200 swimmers on their team!  That's a crazy-lot of swimmers. :)

My girls didn't place high but boy did they have fun and that's all that really matters. :)

I'm glad they had fun! I need to get my children in swim lessons! Nice to "meet" you and I look forward to getting to know you better as we serve on the TOS Crew together this year!
