The swimming lessons Eli & Mia participated in this year were part of the High School swim team's "mini" component. Our team is the Hayfield Seahawks, and they were the Mini Hawks. They were able to participate in official swim meets throughout the last couple of months, competing against other beginning "swimmers," with the national anthem, timers, the air horn signaling "go," and little prize ribbons for the participants. Eli participated in the kickboard races, and Mia was progressing, but is still too afraid of doing the kickboard. But it was such a blast and a self-confidence booster for Eli & for our family to go & cheer him on. Here's a little collage of the swim meet experience.
