It’s hard to believe that another summer swim team season has come and gone! We kick things off here in Atlanta in mid-May and wrap up with awards night the last week of June.
I love swim team because it gets us out of the house bright and early and it is such great exercise. Whit loves it for hanging with his friends after practices and staying up late with them at meets. I remember these days of my own childhood like they were yesterday…
Like every other year that we’ve done swim team – is it 7 years now between the two?! – I keep his ribbons neat on a clip ring. He told me he was going to make his own tag this year with the date. :-)
Speaking of the “Tag”, I have all of their past year ribbons organized like this. Whit loves to look back at his times on events over the years to see how he has improved.
The teen coaches do the cutest paper plate awards each year and they are always a highlight of the party. Well, that and the massive relay the organize. Whit came away with the Mini Coach Tyler Award. He LOVED Tyler, who was friendly, extremely encouraging, impressively organized and a real leader. It touched me that Tyler’s peers picked Whit out of allllll the kids on the team as his “mini”.
We still have half of our summer left!! Now that lacrosse and swim team are behind us let the real dog days begin.
