The whole family was there almost every Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. to cheer her on. With the super early start time, we normally just ate breakfast there. Another nice thing was that the 6 and under age group raced in the top 50 heats so we didn't have to be there all day but there was still plenty of waiting around to do.
The kids met some great new friends and got very creative with their activities as they waited to swim. The girls with one of their new friends, Emily Howell.
Aubrey really loves Ashley Wigginton. She lives on our street, is on the swim team, helped with some of the coaching at the beginning of the season and has started doing some babysitting for us. She is very, very sweet to Aubrey.Our friend, Mrs. Davis, was in charge of the ready bench and she had it very well organized. Here are all the kids lining up and filing into their places to wait to swim their event.

Swimmers take your marks, ready...GO! Aubrey swam three events -- free style relay, free style and backstroke.

It turned out to be a great season. At divisionals, Aubrey swam freestyle in 33 seconds! She says she wants to swim again next year but with her sister, Emery. We really enjoyed getting to know many wonderful families in the neighborhood.
