Swim team - end of season party

Love that swim team. It might be my favorite sport that the kids do. I hear a lot of parents complaining about how long the meets are, but by golly--they're so much fun. It's exciting to see your kids in head-to-head competition. It's satisfying to see how much they progress in skill and confidence over the summer. It helps that we're related to or good friends with most of the team too. One big party.

Speaking of big parties, we ended the season with a carnival. 

Coach Brianne .3 seconds before falling
Ben got in on the fun too.

Speaking of Ben, he especially had a great season. More blue ribbons than he's ever had before and he worked really hard for them. He asked to be put in the IM for every meet, the event that most swimmers whine and complain about. And he rocked it. Coach Ben gave him the hardest worker award at the party. It was awesome. Go swim team.

now there's a benefit to having a lot of kids that i never thought of -- swim meets have much less dead time.

way to go, ben. i was just telling my kids when we watched the olympics that the IM was the true test of swimming greatness (and i flunked).
