hanging swim pennants
The pool has closed, swim season is over,
time to hang ribbons and trophies.
It was Miss C.'s first real year,
she did really well,
making it to the A meet a few times for the swim team,
and placing sometimes in the dive meet.
In our family, participation is required,
success is optional!
So I hang up all those ribbons on a purple twine,
between the 2 pennants I sewed earlier this season.
If you are interested in making your own,
here is the pennant tutorial.
Her trophies are standing underneath, proudly.
Not everybody gets 3rd place in dive,
even when there are only 5 girls in this age group.
I can honestly say that I could not do even the most basic dive,
I am very proud of my little swimmer/diver!
While I did not make any pennant for Brick master,
I am quite impressed by his progress in butterfly.
He started late in the swim team
(at 11 while most of his team mates started around 8 years old)
but on his second year, we saw some real improvement.
I am one proud Mom!
