Yes you read that correctly I said Emily's first swim meet. Her coach felt that she was ready to compete in the 8 and under polar bear meet this past weekend. She did very well considering that she is a young 5 year old who really didn't know what was going on. She did back stroke for her free style heat which as it turns out is fine except that it slowed her down in comparison to the other kids in her heat. For her back stroke heat she started when they were all just supposed to jump in but they just let her swim her 25 yards and then her coach told her she had won her heat and scooped her up out of the pool.
