Isaiah's First Swim Meet

Isaiah had his first swim meet a couple of weeks ago. I didn't swim growing up so this was really my first swim meet as well. I didn't realize how long they last. It was a lot of fun and a new experience for the both of us. Daniel is working up in Portland this summer so he wasn't able to make it to this one. Isaiah just swam in his second meet this week and Daniel was able to come home for that one. We volunteered as timers and we got lucky and had Isaiah in our lane for one of his races. Daniel grew up swimming so he felt right at home. I on the other hand thought I was going to mess up and was a little nervous at first.

Isaiah hasn't quite caught onto diving yet but he puts forth a great effort.












Here is some video of the two events he swam in. 25 backstroke and 25 freestyle. Sorry for the shaky camera work.





Isaiah just sort of falls into the pool to start off the backstroke. I got a good laugh out of it.



Isaiah's cousins were with us for the week. They were very patient during the long meet. I think the wait was worth it. They got ice cream and we went to the movie "Up" afterwards. We had a great time!

I am so proud of that little boy! He is going to be quite the competitor. I can't imagine Ethan being ready for something like this, but Isaiah looks so comfortable in the water. Tell him he's a stud!

I LOVE that Isaiah is on the swim team. It's adorable! And even better that you're documenting it so we can all see it too. Thanks!
