Very Big Day

It was a big day for Ella.  She attended her first Regional meet, along with several hundred other children. She did an amazing job and we are so proud of her.  Ella walked away with 2 ribbons and swam her personal best in every single event today.  She even swam her Individual Medley 14 seconds faster today than her qualifying time.  Amazing!

We left the house this morning at 5:30 and made the 1.5 hour trek to the big city of Tunica, Mississippi. They have a lovely aquatic center and they put on a great meet today.  There were teams from all over the region represented and Ella made a fine showing.  

Look at her beautiful strokes:

It was a building year for our team, but I am so happy to be a part of our town's swim club.  We have wonderful friends there and we have two great coaches.  Thank you Molly and April for all your hard work.  I know it wasn't easy, but we had a blast this summer.
