Savannah and her BFF from this summer's activities, hanging out at a meet and after the end of the season awards ceremony with their medals.
For Logan, swim team was more of a stretch. Early Saturday morning meets and daily practice just didn't have the draw that hockey has for him, but he didn't' want to sit on the side and watch, either. Logan's also never been a "racer" and so it was hard for him to come in (nearly) dead last every meet. His strokes improved, though, and if he wants to, I bed next year he can kick some butt. or, keep dogging it, but enjoy the water every day, whatever. We're not raising 10 year old olympians over here.
Logan's lane coach was awesome. She kept him happy during meets and encourages him every step of the way. We were way thankful for her happy demeanor and constant patience.
When Savannah finally got on the developmental team, the season was almost over, but they did a really cute competition for them with just the kids on our team, and they even did an Olympic Torch walk as they entered the pool. Swim team was a really positive experience for us, and we're looking forward to next year, more head-sized donuts on Wednesdays, and even more time sitting at the pool as we'll have kids in either 2 or 3 time slots. (I'm taking book recommendations now!)
