swimmers take your marks...


a familiar sound to me.
this brought me back to my summer days of swim team.
now, i am getting to cheer on my boy as he attempts his first 25 yard freestyle race.
things started out good.
goggles were on, ready stance on the block was good, dove when the buzzer beeped and then...

...he was completely thrown out of whack when his goggles popped off as he dove in.
its like he all of a sudden forgot how to swim.
i felt so bad for him as he struggled to recover from his little mishap.
he never did and came in last place.
but he was still a winner in my eyes.
i just kept yelling, "GO JACK"
i was able to give him a little pep talk on what to do next time if his goggles came off.
i think he will be ready.
