Swim Meet

I came home in time for the boys' school music program, and then that weekend, Benjamin's first individual swim meet of the year.

Noah wasn't allowed to compete since he's not yet 8 years old, but the coach let him participate in warm-ups with the rest of the team, and he got to splash around in the wading pool when he wasn't cheering on his brother or other teammates. 

Benjamin has made a lot of progress in all of his strokes. He wasn't very happy about doing a 100-meter butterfly race, but he did it! And he did a 400-meter freestyle - that's 16 laps, and took him just over 8 minutes.

Guess who won 3rd place in the 100-meter backstroke?
