Speaking of swim meets made me think of a very proud moment I had when my son was 12. He had been on the Y swim team for several years, mostly because his sister was on it. He enjoyed hanging around with his friends during meets, and if he never won, oh well. The year he was 12 we went to the Y state swim meet. The very last event was the freestyle relay, and my son was scheduled to swim the anchor lap. Since our smaller town team was up against the Cedar Rapids country club team who always won, we didn't figure our team would show very well. However, the first 3 guys managed to keep up pretty well, and my son started his lap just a little behind the CR swimmer. Bit by bit he crept up on the other swimmer until they were just about neck and neck. I was taking movies, and they ended up pretty bad because I was jumping and screaming. Anyway, both swimmers seemed to hit the wall at the same time, but when we looked at the scoreboard, my son had touched the wall first and won a 1st at state meet!
