For the Family!
This is the 3rd time I have tried to publish this... our winds are being clocked here at 67 mph! Taking power hits and hoping my internet stays long enough to post. I sure hope you friends farther inland and north"er" than us are doing okay with this storm, it's just wind and rain here, no snow. Stay safe!
I've been meaning to get these videos up for 2 weeks now. This post is mostly for the family that misses out on the kids' events, one of the reasons technology is so great for military families! Of course if swimming doesn't bore you to tears, you may enjoy it as well!
I apologize in advance for the loud yelling... it's a pool, they aren't very quiet places :)
We will start off how every good American sport should... with our National Anthem!
Please forgive me for straying sometimes from the lane I'm focusing on, I am also a Stroke & Turn judge so while I'm filming I'm actually having to judge 4 lanes of swimmers on technique - I actually never get to watch my own kids swim at the meets because of this, so I requested to have the lanes where they were swimming this time.
Finn 25m Freestyle
Finn 50m Backstroke, 2nd place
Loch - 25m Freestyle
(he is 2nd in from the right, ignore my dyslexia in the video)
Loch - 50m Backstroke - 1st Place
-what kills me here is look how slow he is, even in 1st place... imagine how fast he could be if he could swim against faster kids and not stop and do his hair and makeup at the turns LOL
This was the last meet of the season, so they do a "Coaches Relay", the kids love seeing their coaches race! Funny thing you will notice, our team only has 3 coaches instead of 4 so for the second swimmer they subbed in an 8 year old kid! Although they were last in this video during the 6-8 year old meet, they did the same race again an hour later with the 10-12 year olds and again subbed in a kid and took 4th place.... shame, shame on the coaches in 5th and 6th LOL!
I saved the best for last... check out the oncoming lifeguard as we were leaving...
I may be showing my age here but...
all I could think of was...
