Last night, we went to the awards banquet for Dakota's swim team. It was fun! They had a slide show of pictures from several of the meets and a video the coach took with her waterproof camera when the kids pushed the coaches into the pool after they won the state meet.
Dakota received several ribbons from the meets and a trophy. We are really proud of her! She was remembering her first practice last night and said that her legs were shaking by the end of practice that night and now she placed 16th in the entire state for her age group in the backstroke! In her first season, she has gone from not being able to swim the entire length of the pool to swimming the 100 yard freestyle (that's the length of the pool x 4) in just under 2 minutes! I can't wait to see her at the end of next season.
She says she thinks she has found her calling : )
