Blue Bear

This weekend was the Blue Bear Meet in Edmonton. It was Jill's second "B" meet...and she LOVED it! The meet was held at The Kinsmen Center, where the Commonwealth Games were held. They have an amazing aquatic facility. The pools where the meet was had 20 lanes set up!

We enjoyed being able to stay at the Oviatt's and visit with them. They even came and watched a few of Jill's races.

Good thing for DS' and Iphones....otherwise swim meets might be quite unbearable for little brothers and cousins! Peirce had a great time playing with Jeremy.
Jill had some great results. The best story was her 400 free. It was supposed to be in the morning, but they ran out of time and re-scheduled it for the evening. Warm ups were at 7:30 am. The finals started at 4 pm, and Jill's 400 free was after the finals, so she ended up swimming it at about 8:30 pm. At around 7:45 she came up to where we were sitting. She was at the point of tears because she was so tired. She didn't want to swim it...but we did the: winners swim even when they're tired. Losers quit. Winners keep going!! You can do it Jill!
Sure enough, she did do it - and she took time off! Somehow she seems to do that at every meet. It's quite rewarding to see your child do that!
