Our first swim meet of the summer

Well we made it through the first meet of the summer. We had a little storm delay, but once it got started it went quickly. Rye was up first doing a IM. His first. This basically is 25 fly, 25 back, 25 breast, and 25 free. He did great. He even ended up with a first because the others disqualified. You disqualify if you do the stroke wrong. I told him basically, "You were not the fastest, but you did it correctly, thats why you won"

He did the 25 breast and the 25 fly individual as well. I was quite pleased with his first night!

Kendal was a little apprehensive. She is still such a new swimmer. Everything just scared her. She did a medly relay. Jumped in and took off! She was crying by the end, but the whole place was cheering her on. She also did a 25 breast and 25 back individual. Thanks to Jessie for helping her across! Her and Belle had a great time together. I was very proud of my children cheering each other on. Ryley was being a great big brother and friend. The whole team was high fiving each other. Thats what it is all about!
