Bennett has always loved swimming.
When my other kids were whining and complaining about summer swim team,
Bennett was counting down the days.
So, it was no surprise when he decided to swim at Mountain View.
This was a new experience for us and we loved
going to the meet and watching Bennett interact with all the other kids.
It takes a lot of courage and self confidence to wear a swim suit with pride,
especially in mixed company!
(Not a big fan of the speedos...why can't the boys wear jammers?)
Thank goodness for the drag suits that offer a little bit of coverage
until just before you get on the blocks!
Since Bennett is just a Freshman, he is not swimming for "points".
He swims exhibition and at this meet he swam the 50 Free.
His time was 25:86.
He did a great job!
