The count down

We are counting down to Morgan's first swim meet this Saturday and the funny thing is I think I am more nervous than she is. I mean she is nervous because she has never raced before but I am just nervous about everything. If you know me you know that I am not a freaked out mom; I dont jump when my kids fall or hardly blink when they come home bloody. But throw my baby in the water at 8am with all these big kids and tell her to swim as fast as she can the entire length of the olympic size pool and well.........I'm a mess. Wierd I know. I still perch on the edge of my seat every practice just incase she "needs" me to jump in and rescue her. I am sure the other parents are whispering,"rookie" behind my back because trust me when I tell you it's that obvious that I worry about her being one of the smallest, youngest ones out there. She is in heaven though and loves every minute of her coach giving her orders and making her work out till' she drops. Ugh!! This letting go thing is really hard!! If I had my way I would put floaties on her and tell her to take her time on Saturday. he,he...........I guess that wont work huh? Well, here she is at practice and I will post after her meet.

I don't think floaties would help with her speed, and being that is the whole point of swim meets... well... probably not the best idea ;) I'm sure she'll do great on Saturday :) You'll get the hang of this whole thing soon. Makes me miss my old swim team days :)

Ohhhhh I would be nervous too. I am sure she will do GREAT on Saturday. I will be keeping her (and you) in my thoughts and prayers for a wonderful weekend!

Yaaaayyy Morgan! She is going to be a force to be reckoned with one day (Well, I guess she already is :)- but even more.) I can't wait to hear about it. We're praying and rooting for you Morgan, even though we are 250 miles away.
