Today's opening day for the 2007 NVSL season and is also the first year that M decided to join the swim team.
M and I left for the meet bright and early at 730a and headed over to Mantua for the meet. M swam in two events: 8&U 25 meter freestyle and the 8&U 100 meter freestyle relay. For someone who's never swam competitively (and has only been to a handful of practices), she did pretty well. I noticed a few things that she needs to work on with regard to her stroke (such as exhaling underwater), but, overall, she did great. My mom came to the meet and joined D and I cheering her on. N was there as well, but was more interested in playing in the sand vs. cheering on his sister. That's alright, he has to suffer through enough of his sister's events, he deserves to play in the sand every now and again.
Here she is after the meet. I got a few action shots as well, but I thought this was the best of the bunch. Yeah, she's happy.
Afterwards we went to McD's to celebrate her first swim meet. (Actually, we went through the drive-through and ate at home.) She and N both got a McFlurry to help with the celebration, as well as a prized happy meal (they're usually verboten, but on occasion, we'll give in to the pressure).
Mundane: mowed yard, practiced guitar, had a veggie burrito from Chipotle. Watched Cops for the first time in I don't know how long.
