My Little Seahorse

Hope you all don't mind.....but I have to brag a little here.   My seven year old Grand daughter Gabby decided that she wanted to join the local swim team "The Seahorses" this year. When she started the end of September, she barely knew how to tread water let alone swim.  She practices 3 times a week for one hour each time. At first she wanted to hold her nose when she jumped in and kept her head above water as she swam.  Today was her fourth meet and wow...what a difference...she is swimming the correct way and getting faster every time. I didn't get her time today but I know it's better then last week. I am so tickled that she is loving this sport. She is a shy sweet little girl and this is so wonderful for her self confidence!  It was a little hard to get some good shots of her because it was so crowded I had to zoom in and some shots are a little blurry!

I loved the series of shots! Who can blame a grandmother for bragging? She deserves applause for making such great progress, and for her determination to begin! Thanks for sharing.

Good for her. Swimming is terrific exercise and competition is good preparation for life, so long as it is taken with a healthy attitude.

I'm so proud of my Gabby girl. She's putting 110% into this and you can tell her effort is paying off.

this brings back memories of one of our daughters on swim team at age 7. She was a little fish.
the smell of chlorine always takes me back. (and burns my nose!)
