Swimmers, Take Your Mark....

A good looking bunch of swimmers. 
Andrew's in the green shirt.

Andrew swam 25 back and 25 breast in the finals.
He had his best times in each event during prelims and finals.

He might have a little competitive bone in his body after all.
So proud to see him want to do his best!

Little brother was there to cheer him on too.
And had to draw pictures of Andrew "swim so fast."

Mariemont won the league championships for the 3rd year in a row.
The 8 & under boys were the high point scorers for their age group too!
For all you non-swimmer parents this post likely means absolutely nothing.
Just a Mama proud of her big boy and his teammates.

Now we are heading out on a little family vacay, 
to be close to the water and hopefully much cooler temps.
 Be back in August!

(thanks to my Dad for the photos of the meet.)


  1. Congratulations! You should all be proud!
    Enjoy your vacation by the water. I am jealous!

  2. Yay for Andrew!
    What a fun and fabulous accomplishment.

    As a fellow swimmer {started at 7 and swam through college} summer season was always my favorite as we were able to be outdoors and they were a little more festive ~ how I wish I had that swimmers body now!

    Relax and enjoy your vacation time ~

  3. Congrats to Andrew!!! That is awesome! Hope you enjoy your vacation! We are headed to the water, too. Should be the perfect amount of fun before heading back to work. Boo. I am NOT ready for summer break to be over.

  4. Way to go Andrew! Have fun on your vacation!

  5. How fun! We are a big swim family and I always love to see other friends enjoying the sport. I could go on and on about how great it is for kids, but you have probably already witnessed it firsthand. Have you been watching the Worlds on TV?
