We put Kate on a swim team when she was 4 and swimming looked more like drowning. She got the hang of it pretty quickly, but the starting block always made me smile. She'd do this cute, dainty, jump into the water and then start swimming. I'm sure in her mind, she was diving, but it was no where close to fingers, head, shoulders, hips and toes...Kate started playing around in the pool with her cousins when we were home visiting, and she totally nailed the diving thing. At Time Trials this week, she rocked the block.
WAY TO GO, Kate!!! I was so proud of her!!!
It must have helped because we found out today that she made the "A" team. No wonder there was a little extra hop in her step today. She was feeling pretty darn good.
