Our Swimming Girl

The 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials will always hold a special place in my heart.  

Note the closed fist swimming stroke.  She had a bandaid on her finger that she didn't want to loose in the water.  Swimming with closed hands!  Now that is dedication, or something like that.

They inspired my girl to swim across the pool by herself.

Now, she is swimming underwater by herself too.

Way to go, G-Bear.

Anyone else excited for the olympics?

YEA G-Bear!!!!

I'm so excited for the Olympics... although am really bummed the US Synchro team didn't make it this year.

We had a similar experience, multiplied by the fact they were able to watch the trials in person. We now find it impossible to swim without our souvenir swim caps and goggles and have the only 3 and 6 year olds I know attempting the butterfly.
