I Wish I Were a Swimmer

I could always swim, but I was not a swimmer.  I love that my boys have caught on to this sport.  They've tried football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, but none of those sports really clicked quite as well as competitive swimming has.  Makes me proud.  I wish I had tried this sport in my youth.

This is Oli in lane 4.  He's the last one off the block, but he took 2nd in his heat.  Butterfly is beautiful.


  1. Yea Oli! The butterfly is fun to watch. It seems to take such strength. I remember Michael Phelps doing it in the Olympics. Awesome.

  2. This gets me so excited to watch!! GO OLI!! I'm so proud of him!! He is doing awesome! I bet you would have been a great swimmer Valene. Tell Oli to keep it up. I bet that is so fun for you to watch him!
