5 Years & Counting

Summer has been spending the majority of her summers on the diving block for the last 5 years. It is incredible for me as a parent to watch her grow up competing. When the gun goes off Summer dives in the pool gracefully and makes every stroke look effortless. Sure, she has had some bad days when she isn't happy with her time but she often says, "it is more about perseverance than winning." All her little swim friends give each other encouragement. I have a feeling in a few years when Summer looks back to her swim days she will find that she has learned beyond mastering the art of strokes.
