Checkin' in on my "D-boy"

Daniel swam in his first collegiate meet last month against Tennessee. Being that TN is a nationally ranked swim team, UNCW came no where near winning the meet. Tennessee sought a meet against "W", mainly because of that large body of water that rests very near the campus of UNCW!

John had to work, so my Mom and Dad agreed to accompany me to the meet. My very good friend, Kristi, offered to take my kids for the afternoon. So we trekked to Wilmington.

I was so excited to see my boy again!

You could tell that he was loving it down on the pool deck! He loves swimming in college and loves the college life. He's doing really well in both academics and athletics.

UNCW, as evidenced by the banners pictured below, has enjoyed great success in its conference.

11 years worth of conference championship banners

Daniel is hoping to be apart of another Championship team this year!

He swam really well and secured a spot on the travel team. He's gained 10 pounds since he has been at college. 

definitely gotten bigger

After the meet, we went out to eat and caught up on what's been going on in his life. All too soon, we had to say our goodbyes!  It was wonderful to see Daniel doing something he loves and has been dreaming of for many years!
