And more swim meet

Since Benjamin passed his "ENF3" level last month, that means he can now compete in "real" competitions, rather than only the in-house ones organized by his club.

Can you imagine trying to practice in this? I told Frédéric it looks like a fish farm. Kids were everywhere!

Benjamin swam the 100m medley (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and crawl), the 25m backstroke, and the 25m crawl.

He didn't win anything, so he was a little disappointed, but he figured out that he's going to have work harder to place in the top three, and learn to take some constructive criticism. So he's been working harder on his technique since the competition.

He did beat his own time in the 100m medley from the in-house swim meet, which was great!

Happy Mother's Day from St. Louis! I enjoyed reading about Benjamin and Noah's latest accomplishments (I sure missed Noah's curly hair). They are such good looking young men and talented too. And you are loving and "tough" mother ;>) Have a wonderful day and a good week.
