"I just can't wait to do it again"

"I just can't wait to do it again!" These were Connor's words just before bed tonight when talking about his first swim meet this afternoon. This afternoon the Southland Sharks hosted the swim team from Portland, Tennessee. Having never been to a swim meet myself, we didn't have any idea what to expect.
After warming up, the event cards were passed out. Connor ended up with three individuals and 2 team relay events. I had thought he was only going to participate in a single event. Were we surprised!!

Connor competed in the second event of the meet along with three other boys his age in a relay. He swam the butterfly stroke to help his team win first place. During his second relay he swam the breast stroke and his group came in second. Before having to leave to go to the baseball game, Connor competed in an individual swimming the butterfly. He came in fourth. We left and went to his baseball game. We made it back in time for his last event, the individual free style. Connor swam with borrowed goggles as we were rushing to get back in time. He came in fourth. Not too bad for his very first swim meet.
Now as far as the baseball game goes....the Yankees won 21-7. We advance to the next game in the tournament and play again tomorrow night. GO YANKEES!!
What a night......
