The Shortest Swim Meet Ever!

6-17-17-49
Saturday we had our 3rd of 4 regular season summer swim meets and our only away meet. The meet started at 7:30am (instead of the usual 8) and we were out of there by 11am...it was a swim miracle!!! The whole meet was one of the most pleasant I have ever been to for sure because it seemed less stressful for whatever reason (maybe just the small number of swimmers total? and not having the heat of the afternoon creeping in?). 
Ella didn't have her best meet but she had fun swimming up an age group and still winning her races (she is definitely more in long course mode right now). Preston beat all of his times except breaststroke and Addie totally crushed it on her freestyle moving up from 5th on our team to 1st in the whole meet! She was SOOO excited about that race! 
I decided to take pictures instead of video-ing the races this meet which was a fun change for me...maybe that played into it being less stressful as well. If every meet went this nicely I wouldn't mind if summer swim lasted all summer long ;-)!

It's so fun to watch Ella dive now because I remember thinking she would never figure out how to jump out and dive! Even when she was becoming a really amazing swimmer her dives were never powerful, but now they are so pretty! (she has the purple Katy cap)
