Dakota has competed in three swim meets so far this summer. It's been really good for her to get a little more one on one work during practice when there are only 18-20 kids swimming rather than 30 or so. She has been working on diving from the block and has done it in the last two meets.
And the coach had a surprise for us at the meet last Saturday. She signed Dakota up to swim the breast stroke! I almost missed it because she normally only swims the backstroke and freestyle-which are later in the meet. I was reading my book and waiting and happened to hear the coach call Dakota's name. I looked to see if there was a problem and saw her lining up for her race. She did great for her first time!
