Swimming in Idaho!
My nephew Nathan has been swimming for a year now and, according to his coach (not to mention a local news station!) he shows a lot of promise, especially considering the fact that he is relatively new to the sport. We’re so proud of him! And now Caitlin, who is five years younger, wants a piece of the action and just started swimming herself. Dick and I were excited to be there to see the two of them swim in the Boise Thanksgiving Invitational… and of course we brought our cameras. This was Caitlin’s first swim meet and she did a fantastic job.
Saturday – Caitlin is all warmed up and ready for her first event ever.
Just about to swim freestyle as part of her relay team
Look at her go!
The team gets some coaching after their heat is done.
Way to go, girl! :-)
Now for her first solo event – breast stroke
Taking a quick breath before finishing the lap
And now Nathan prepares for one of MANY events that he swam on Saturday
We don’t know this kid, but I had to get the shot anyway
More photos of the swimmers on Sunday – Caitlin swimming freestyle
One of Caitlin’s team mates prepares to start her lap
Just look at that determination!
And the result! (Nathan checks out the score board)
