Here is Buddy lined up for his first swim, the 25 meter backstroke
About to swim the 50 bs
walking out for the freestyle
Well it was a success! After he completed his first swim he relaxed quite a bit and actually seemed to have fun. He came up to the bleachers to see us and I immediately felt better once I saw his smile. There was at least 15 heats of each event he did. He finished around 5th on most of his heats although I haven't seen the actual times yet. I couldn't be more proud! He swam the way he was taught and he followed through even though he was scared. He faced his fear and when it was all said and done he got in the truck and told Paul, "Daddy I loved it! When is my next meet?"
