Pentathlon Swim Meet

This was SUCH a FUN meet! I love the concept. Swim 50 yards of all 4 strokes (freestyle, butterfly, breast stroke, backstroke) individually then swim a medley of all 4 strokes in the 5th race. 5 races that every swimmer at the meet does.

Motor Mouth won 4/5 races and came in 2nd in one race. He was the meet high scorer for his age group. My favorite part about the meet was MM giving 3/4 of his heat winning prizes to his sister and two of his friends and how he shakes hands with the kids in the lanes next to him.

The meet pool has really tall windows that look out onto a green belt. It had been snowing since about midnight and a steady snowfall continued the the whole meet. Big, fluffy snowflakes. It was beautiful!

The boy on the right is MM's good friend. I LOVE this kid. I got him hooked on reading Lemony Snickett's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" - in a British accent. It's the best way to read the books for maximum enjoyment.
