Every week Big Bit has a swim meet, He is in High school and it is his *swim season* . His 4 x 100 Freestyle relay has qualified to go to the State Meet and they are stoked. He is 1 second ( yes I said ONE!!) away from qualifying in his 500 Freestyle... which by the way is 20 lengths of the pool.. So this Thursday - about 4 pm - if you happen to think of us - could you - by osmosis think *sprint* and maybe he will get that time!!!
So - here we go - mine is the kiddo in the orange cap - and he is standing up straight because I told him I was going to try to get some pictures.... such a helpful kid!
Swimmers take your marks.
Those are his feet - he hung there on the dive for me to get specifically that shot... I tell ya - he is impressive right?
He looked up at me so I could get a head shot - but I wasn't quite fast enough!
Here is what the brothers do during the meets - they draw and make cartoons and generally entertain themselves. Although they are no slackers to swimming either. They had a meet the day before this one, and ironically enough - each of them took 5 seconds off of all their times.
And just so you know - they are not always in the water. They do shooting sports too - this year we are adding air pistol into our list of events, the main competitions are in June and July. Never to early to start practicing.
They also do air rifle. Middle Bit was hiding in the pick up - which was smart, the wind is still kind of cold this year !
If you have made it this far - I am impressed. I, of course, think everything they do is just peachy keen, but then I might be a little baised. And a little prejudiced, and a bit over protective ( not really - I am just throwing that in there for the girls!) and well you know- they are mine!!
