Miles did the Utah Summer Games this year - in swimming. He had a great time - the medals didn't hurt either. He earned 2 silvers in the 8 and under category - one in the 100 backstroke (the best race there is) and one in the 200 free (which he lost the gold to the other little boy by less than 1 second). Anyway - they hold the meet in the new college pool - ok, it might not be so new, but it is new to me. It is an olympic size pool (50 meters), so it was a bit intimidating but I was so proud of how well he did. He still tells me that he doen't like backstroke - he likes the breaststroke, which was my absolute worst stroke. Well - we will keep working on it though and maybe next meet we won't be disqualified (he does a scissor kick).
I feel really bad that I don't have a good picture of him swimming - I have a great excuse though. It is very hard to take pictures of him swimming when I am holding a wiggling child in my other arm. The only time that Abby would hold still was when I was taking a picture of her - so here she is - she was not the angel she looks like here during the meet. It was exhausting to have her there, but I love her anyway. I am sure we will have more meets soon and I will get some swimming pictures then.
