My boys love it when I sign them up for swim team - honest they do - they just forget that every morning as it's time to go. This summer has been hit and miss with practice though - since we seem to think that summer is for vacations :) Even with the not so consistant workouts - both boys have improved tons this year. In fact - Miles dropped 15 seconds in his 50 free - he went from 53 point something seconds sometime in late June to 38 point something seconds in the middle of July. Here is his "famous" race. Hopefully you can tell which one is him - he is in the middle of the pool, but I tried to center in on him.
Ethan is still my backstroker - but the video I took of that was not good - so here is a video of his 50 free as well - he also dropped time - 5 seconds. I need to get their official times and update the blog with them. Ethan is the one in lane 1 (closest to the camera)
Both of the boys were the youngest in their age groups this summer - so it will be fun to see how they do next summer (unless Miles earns his lifesaving merit badge before then - I told both boys that they had to do swim team until they got that merit badge, just didn't think they would be old enough for scouting for a long time - it is crazy how quick they are growing up)!
