lincoln and sawyer start swim team!!

if you've been around here awhile, you know we love swim team. it's a huge commitment, but one that pays off in LOTS of ways! and when can you ever have all your kids - boys and girls, ages 4-18 - on the SAME team? never! it's awesome! not to mention they learn to SWIM and they get tons of exercise! we love it.

so...the younger boys have watched hours of swim team practice and swim meets over the last few years...but this year lincoln and sawyer are swimming!!! so 5 of my 6 kids will be on swim team. levi and i will spend LOTS of time watching them. his turn will come! he is anxious...so maybe next year??

they've been so excited. i'm not 100% sure they will ever swim in a meet, but we'll see! they'll give it their best shot!

first day:
 those junior coaches in the water are SAINTS. i mean. amazing.



i kind of can't wait to see how this plays out...will they get strong enough to swim in meets? will they race each other? who will win?? ahh! :-)

LOVE swim team. we started a few weeks ago, but ours is indoors (I wish that it was outside!) LOVE the life lessons that they learn from swim team. and Karley is BEGGING to do it! she just needs to learn to let go of the wall!! she is motivated though - I have a feeling later on this summer that she will start! have fun!

They are definitely going to benefit from swim practice...just like their older siblings did!! Go grandkids!!!!
