It was a small meet, but just right for Zadie to settle in. She's the youngest one on the team and she was really worried that she would come in last place. I was so excited that they pulled the 5 and 6 year olds out for their own heat and she only had a few little girls to race.
And if you can't see her in this next picture (indoor swim meets are impossible to photograph) this is Zadie winning her backstroke heat by half a pool length. I was a little proud.
After a summer season that was all about Andy and the zillion ribbons he won, it was fun for her to be the star of the day. Andy did well, too, but he has moved up to a new age group and he'll have a lot of work to do before he can beat those big boys. I know he's up to the challenge.
