This year Ashlynn decided to join the Country Club of Lexington Swim Team. It was a major commitment because swim team practice started two weeks before school ended every afternoon for an hour and in the summer every morning in the water by 8:45 a.m. It was amazing to see how well she did even after only two weeks. At first she was a little worried about competing in the swim meets but thankfully for good friends encouraging her she decided that she could do it.
We were not as concerned about her winning ribbons . . . only that she didn't give up and kept going, even when the going got tough. She did exactly that and came in Second Place during one of her meets. She met some wonderful friends and is excited about being on the team again next year. We are hopeful that her little sister will be joining her on the team next year as well. Ainsley has already been diving into the pool and practicing her "streamlining." She will be taking swim lessons from one of Ashlynn's coaches at the end of this month. We will keep our fingers crossed.
