Angela had her first swim meet today. Actually, it was a "mock meet" to prepare for the upcoming state meets, but a race is a race man! She did GREAT! A far cry from "the rock" she was just 18 months ago!
She was pretty nervous! Here she is, waiting for her race. Notice the swimmer shoulders this kid has!
First, the 25 meter Backstroke. Her first race of the day, look how nervous she looks before the whistle! I have to tell you, this is the FIRST TIME she's swam the backstroke without stopping to see where she is. I was so excited! She ended up turing around about 5 feet from the end. LOL
Next came the 25 meter Freestyle. Angela is just learning rythmic breathing, so sometimes it's hard to put it all together. Today she didn't remember, so just swam with her face out of the water. You can tell when she remembers, because all of a sudden she throws her face in the water. LOL
Next comes the 15 Meter Freestyle. Notice she's throwing her face in the water once in awhile. Very cute. I'll miss watching this stage when she finally gets it all put together!
Her last race was the 100 Meter Relay, however there are other athletes in the relay and I haven't gotten permission to post the video online. (note* If anyone has an email address for Kiera's mom, or Joe's mom, have them email me!)
