Fernie Swim Meet

Well, I would say we could call this weekend's swim meet a success! We went to Fernie. They had a bus and all the kids went on the bug while the parents followed in a convoy. We visited Gaylene and Duane Friday night in Sparwood and then on Saturday went into Fernie. That night we stayed in a hotel. Staying in a hotel is a lot more fun when they place if full of people you know! The kids had an 'Amazing Race' all through the town of Fernie, then had a pizza party - and then they had to find something fun to do-so they swam some more!

Jill beat her best time in all but one of her races....although one won't show because she got DQ'd ...she sure felt proud of her good times though!

Girls 10 and Under:

200 metre IM Old time: 4:13:49 New time: 3:39! (which was just 10ths of a second short of a B time! What a surprise that was!)

100 metre Back Stroke - Didn't beat her time (1:52.70...and got DQ'd....I think her kick was the culprit)

100 metre Freecycle Old time: 1:43:12 New time 1:33! (Well, not really her new time...she got DQd in this one...missed the wall! Apparently her goggles had filled up with water and she misjudged the wall. Oh well!)

200 metre Free Style Old time: 3:44.68 New time: 3:15.51!!

100 metre Breaststroke Old time: 2:16.64 New time: 1:58!

....oh, and her team got 3rd in the relay. She got ribbons for placing in 3 of her races as well.

Here's a few pictures Gaylene took. Thanks for being the photographer Gaylene!

Congratulations Jill!! Oh, and I can't believe how grown up she is!! Certainly not the adorable sunbeam I used to teach, but a beautiful young lady!! Why must kids keep getting older?
