She had been begging for months and months to join the swim team. Finally I conceded to try it out for three months with the promise that she wouldn’t complain and I wouldn’t complain. Well it’s been three months and she held up to her end of the bargain (even through the cold winter months at an outdoor pool), but it’s easy not to complain when you love something as much as she loves swimming. I, on the other hand, still have to get used to all the shuttling to practices and the long days at swim meets.
I do love watching her swim. The improvement she has made these last few months is staggering. Her butterfly is better than mine will ever be and I fear the day she beats me in a 50 freestyle race is just around the corner.
