More Cuda Bubbles were eaten!


Our second meet of the year was against the Coles Crossing Crocs.  They were a formidable team but again the Cudas were triumphant.  I am sure it is that wonderful Coach Goobers and all those wonderful             Jr. Coaches.  The win was fun.  All of the Texas T's swim times were not as good as the week before.  I think the kiddos were all fighting a cold.  

Time Trials and the first meet we are all on cloud nine but then the honeymoon wears off.  We hear other kids and their parents making rude comments about beating us in the lanes.  ( I am not talking about the other team but some highly competitive individuals that apparently have been a little upset that their year round swimmers were not beating my summer only swimmers.  It is always such a temptation for me to get wrapped up in that "My swimmer is better than your swimmer" crap.  But it is just that CRAP.  It means that J and I have to disengage a little.  Our personalities are way too competitive and find that we might suffer from caring a little too much. We will not spend the week coming up with a plan on how to beat so-in-so and were disgusted to realize that our child's name was used all week to motivate another child.)
In the end our goal is for the kids to have fun, learn a little about the sport, try their hardest and to always remain Christian and kind in winning or losing.  In that respect we had a successful week.

We all hope one of us is fast enough to break a team record and get the family name on the record board - but if it doesn't happen we will live.  The great news is that the Cudas won, we enjoyed time with some wonderful friends, and we celebrated our kids working real hard.
