Daniel's last high school swimming season

Here's a video of Daniel accepting his award for MVP of his high school team.

So proud of Daniel. He's worked extremely hard, not only in the pool, but in the classroom. His schedule has been very difficult for a senior year. In addition to winning MVP, he's been awarded Academic All American, All Conference and Academic All Conference.

The college game is almost over, he's been accepted to the two schools that were recruiting him. He has one final meet-Jr. Nationals in Orlando. His times at this meet will likely determine where he will go, because the times will determine how much scholarship he receives.  He's beyond ready to know that part of his future.

Here are some pictures of my swimmer boy doing what he loves!

He's the one in the middle of the two "M" caps
Get ready
get set

and go!!

The Senior swimmers, yes, he was the only male!
I'm really a little sad to see this part end. It's true that swim meets can be lessons in boredom and having to entertain two little ones, isn't always easy. But, it always did my heart good to see my boy do well, and be there for him when he didn't do as well as he would have liked.The knowledge that he will probably be at a lot of swim meets without me next year made me appreciate being there this year.

  1. Bitter sweet for sure! I remember Tylar's last soccer game. It was such a big part of our family life for so long. New season for all of you. Well done!
