So much of my writing seems to center around Lucy and then Jack, which only makes sense because I spend so much time with them.  Tonight, however, was all about Ella.  We drove to the Memphis area for her first swim meet of the season.  She did awesome---rocking the relay with these three guys!

One of the little boys is already 11, so they all had to swim in the 11-12 division.  Not only did they win, but they won by at least 50 meters (thats 2 pool lengths).  I kept double checking to make sure I wasn't missing a swimmer somewhere, but these guys really beat the pants off the other teams.  These four are quite a group!

I love watching Ella swim.  She is so graceful and strong.  I have prayed for a while that Ella would find her passion and I think she finally has.  Our city is covering the pool this fall so that means we will have access to year round swimming.  Our whole family is thrilled about this.  It means PT for Lucy, swim team for Ella and exercise for the rest of us.

It's fair to say that I am completely hooked on this swimming thing!

  2. Go Ella! That's some tough competition!
    I wish I had started swimming at her age.

  3. Way to go Ella!!! You guys rock! Swimming is so much fun and I bet you are even more graceful in that water than I can imagine.
