David swims on a private swim team that practices at the YMCA not far from Orangehouse. Since August, he has been working very hard to move to the next higher level of swimmers. Among other requirements, he had a particularly demanding practice in which he swam over two miles one evening. Over a mile of that total was without stopping!
Yesterday he was officially admitted to the higher group and had his first practice with them! I'm very proud of his hard work and determination. And to top it off, we also found out Friday that he made the 7th grade basketball team. Yea David!
[This is a warm up session from a recent
swim meet in Austin at the UT pool.
David is the one doing freestyle.]
