But the finals already began today.
I went to Tucker's final outdoor swim meet, league championships, today. He didn't want to swim in the summer league this year, so I'm sure I won't be able to convince him to swim next year.
These championship swim days are always unbearably hot and start very early. They had to be at the pool by 7:15. Luckily, the coach volunteered to take Tucker and his best friend Josh. I didn't have to be there until 9 and I went with a mocha for me and a frappucino for Tucker, trying to jolly him into a good mood.
Tucker and his team were lined up already to swim. They did well, especially considering that Tucker only went to one practice this summer.
|That's Tucker in the center and his bestie Josh on the right.|
|I took this picture at the end of the lane, but it looks very bizarre because his foot is so far out of the water.|
|They decided to stick their goggles to their faces like when they were little kids.|
|Here they are on the blocks getting ready to swim the 50 freestyle. (Tucker won but it was close.)|
Goodbye sitting in the sun and sweating.
Goodbye volunteering to time at swim meets.
This is just the first of many finals in the year to come.
