Kelsie swam in her first swim meet of the year this past Thursday. She swam in 5 of the 100+ events (in other words, she swam for 4 minutes in a 2 1/2 hour meet!!). Meet nights are long nights, but Kelsie seems to enjoy it. A professional photographer has a son on Kelsie’s team, so she’s at every meet taking beautiful pictures. Kelsie said, “I saw Ms. Paula taking pictures of me, so I made sure I smiled.” She was supposed to be swimming, not looking at the camera!
The parents have to take turns helping out at the meets – timing, working the concession stand, entering times, etc… I was timing at this meet and each time Kelsie got out of the pool, she made sure she gave me a big hug… not to be a sweet daughter… to get me all wet.
On each Monday after the meets, the team is awarded their ribbons. Kelsie did pretty good, earning 4 ribbons.
And this is what you get when the little brother isn’t getting any attention…
