It's 11:30 a.m., and we're back home after our early morning wake up to our first swim meet.
In all the prep and hype yesterday for our first meet today, I did not get an opportunity to share that we now have another missing tooth. Sydney lost her 5th! tooth yesterday, and I continue to be perplexed how a child that has not even started school yet has lost so many teeth. But I guess it is OK. She's always been advanced. :)
So our toothless shark awoke with the best of them today for the first big meet. It was early, I'm not gonna lie - but it went by so fast - and was SO much fun. Watching these little kids (and big kids too) fly through the water is very exciting. Sydney had two races today - 25 meter freestyle and 25 backstroke. I am a gloating parent when I announce that my child was a heat winner today. There were several heats for a single race, but my girl took a ribbon for her heat in freestyle! Yay!! The backstroke was not as strong - BUT - she did not touch the ropes.... a very big deal for her age.
So, first meet - nicely done! Below are a few pictures of my toothless girl from yesterday, gearing up for her race today and showing off her first ribbon.
