So I spoke too soon! Last night in Caden's second meet, he won his heat! He was sooo proud! He shaved 18 seconds off his time from last week in the 25 yard freestyle. He said last week, he didn't know he was supposed to race....so last night I guess he figured it out.

Somehow, during conception, Caden failed to inherit my gene for swimming. And considering I have already had to "rescue" Preston from the shallow end this swim season, I am losing hope for him as well.
Monday was Caden's first meet, and he won 4 ribbons which he slept with pinned to his pajamas. However, it took him nearly a minute to do a lap of backstroke and nearly the same in freestyle! Looking at this optimistically, he can't really go any slower, right? So, in tomorrow's meet he should get "best times" in these events and win a couple more ribbons (these days they hand out ribbons for just about everything)...and that's all he cares about!
Even if most of the ribbons are just "participant" ribbons...
Here's a few photos from the meet and more summertime fun!

Wednesday started summer vacation for Caden. We haven't done anything super exciting since it is 104 degrees outside with the heat index and expected to stay that way for the next five days. Caden has been enjoying the neighborhood swim team (I think it's only because they are called the dolphins) and Preston has been playing with friends and making a few messes here and there.
