She has been swimming for 3 or 4 years now. Until now though, it was for fun and safety. Now she is drawn into the SPORT of swimming. At her age and level, it’s still all about fun, not really competition, but I know how it starts. First she’ll win a few ribbons for participating, then before you know it, she’ll be swimming with a weight vest on to beat the others. Well, for now, I’ll enjoy watching my sweet little girl make it past the hurdles of nerves and excitement as she gets up to the edge of the water and gets ready to dive in. She’s sometimes timid, but seldom backs down from the challenge.
