Conference - Going to finals

Sorry guys, time for a little mommy brag time on her little blessings.

For those of you who don't know me and my family, my girls have been swimming for 11 years. I guess I gave birth to fish :-)

Due to a snow storm on Friday our conference swim meet was rescheduled, preliminaries today and finals on Monday.

This conference includes eight high schools. To qualify for finals you must place in the top six positions in your event. Those six swimmers will come back on Monday (Finals) and swim for medals.

There are about 20 swimmers per event (four heats).

My oldest daughter (who graduates this year) placed in the top six in the 100 yard breast stroke, pictured above.

My second daughter (sophomore) placed in the top six in both the 50 Free Style and the 100 Free Style.

Both girls are on two relay teams that will also compete in the finals.

I am so thankful that God chose me to be their mother.

Girls - good luck at finals and better luck at state.
