We have had a fabulous time participating in swim team for the first time this year. Both McCall and Parker are members of the Folsom Sea Ottter swim club. They have had a great time doing it and have improved so much from their first practice in May. After time trials they each set some personal goals for themselves and we were so happy that they were able to reach a few of them. McCall wanted to improve her time in the Butterfly by 10 seconds or more and we are happy to report that she had her personal best on Saturday and reached that goal!!! Butterfly is her best and favorite stroke, which is amazing to us since we still aren't sure if we are doing it correctly.
Parker's goal was to get a first place finish in the backstroke. He did it on Saturday! I was so excited I almost fell in the pool as I ran along him screaming my head off. He finished two whole body lengths in front of the next guy. These are a few pictures from that great day. I kids definitely got the swimming bug and are already talking about next years goals!
