Our Little Fish!

Emma competed in her first swim meet this weekend! It was a very early Saturday morning for us ~ she had to be there by 8am! She would compete in 2 events ~ the 25m freestyle (breaststroke) and the 23m backstroke. Here she is getting some practice in before the meet starts!

Brr! It was cold getting out of the water! The Shockers! gather together while the other teams practice - Enid, Lawton, & Woodward were all here.

Hi, cutie! :)
Instead of jersey numbers, the swimmers get "Sharpied". They mark the races, lanes, and events on their arm or leg in sharpie marker. Emma usually gets scolded for drawing on herself, so she thought it was pretty cool! :)
Taking her mark for the 25m Backstroke!
And off she goes!

She (unofficially) took 2nd place in the race. Way to go, Emma!
Cheering on her friend, Emma Li!
Her teacher, Ms. Allen, even came to see her and her other two classmates, Gavin & Isabel, race. It meant so much to her! She was panicked because she had forgotten to tell me to email her until Saturday morning, so it was very late notice (on an early morning!) and she came to see them anyway. Thank you, Ms. Allen! You're the best!

And off she goes!

She (also unofficially) took 4th in this race! We'll have to wait until this week to get the final standings.
What a sweet little swimmer
Em & Gav
Can you believe these little guys just learned how to swim 3 months ago??
We are SO proud of you!!
Congratulations on all your hard work!
