Most Improved Award

One of the activities that we have participated in this summer is Swim Team. The original intent was that both Kendall and Lily would both compete this year, however that quickly changed at the first meeting where Kendall "sank" in the pool. So Lily has been on the Welcome Waves Swim Team this year.

Swim Team practice are 4 days a week, with a choice of morning or afternoon practice. Most days, Matt takes the 3 little kids to the morning practice starting at 10:30am, they usually arrive home around 1pm. Lily has been working really hard on swimming, she has also realized that with her goggles she can actually see where she is going. I have watched as she made huge improvements. In her very first meet, she only swam one event, 25 freestyle, her time 1:26.80. At the end of the regular season, 4 weeks later she is swimming in 3 events and probably could an 25 meter backstroke if she was not so tired after 3 events. Her swimming is so much appropriate and faster, her time 47.53! Difference of 39.27 seconds!

Tonight at the ending pool party, Lily was recognized as the Girl Most Improved for the age 10 and under! We are so PROUD of here! Here is the picture of the award:
