Maverick has been learning swim strokes through the city swim program this summer. He chose to skip the meets each week because he "didn't want to race." He heard medals rather than ribbons were given at the final meet and quickly changed his tune.
He did well, and seeing him excited made the weeks of sweating in the bleachers worth it. Maverick placed in both back and fly.
I have to admit it was fun sitting with Jill each week and then watching our sons accept their medals yesterday. I have to give a shout out to Emma who completely took her heats by storm. Jaw-dropping butterfly. Being a swimmer in a former life, I hold the fly in highest regard.
Thank you for the picture, Jill. Yours are always so much better than mine.
