Swimming like crazy

Summer is our busy swim season.  The boy swims both morning and night.  People are always surprised that we have so little free time in the summer.  It's because the boy loves his water, and we love the boy, so we take the boy to the water.

This video is at the 13 and up practice for state.  Eric is the second from the top.  I know none of you ever get to see him swim.  I can't post whole videos on here most of the time, but here is a practice dive.

Our summer swim season was not our favorite.  Three of our 5 meets got rained out.  But, we spent a couple of hours sitting in the rain each time before it was called.  So, yucky and disappointing.  However, Eric got the coaches' award for his age division, so we were proud of him. 

At district, his relay teams both came in second.   He will go to state in both of those.   He got 6th in his other two events.  However, I am most proud of his 100 Individual Medley.  Even though he got 6th and did not qualify for state in it, he swam it faster than he ever has before - 1:25.26.  So proud of him!
