Andy's first swim meet

Those of you who know our Andy know that he likes to stay busy.  And keep me busy.  All. The. Time.  His latest endeavor is the swim team.  He missed the beginning of swimming season with a broken wrist, but he was so excited to jump right in when the cast came off.  Plus it's a great way for him to get that wrist moving again.

So Friday was his first meet and he was a bit nervous, not knowing what to expect.  And let me tell you, it was loud, and hot and crowded in that pool area.  Once we had his events written on his arm in Sharpie and he made his way to the blocks, he stepped up like it was old hat.

It was getting dark by the time he swam and I didn't get great pictures, but you get the point.

Andy swam a few Freestyle distances and one backstroke.

Well, he didn't win any of his heats, but he came in 2nd or 3rd each time.  I was so proud of him for trying something new and for not being too disappointed.  (Andy can be a bit competitive)  I know it'll be even more fun as he gets to know the other kids and learns more about the sport.  Besides, I don't think you can break anything in the swimming pool.  Guess we'll find out!
