It was announced during the week that we would be scratching from finals. Kidlet made it into the finals in both of her events. Would she have medalled? Definitely in one. You all know how I feel about this so best I just shut my trap.
It was unbelievably hot today. One of those days where the feels like temp hits triple digits (Before noon). The glare off of the pool just made things worse. When you add to this equation the fact that pool decks are all cement and so are the surrounding buildings it is a bit like being in an oven. I really wanted to accidentally fall into the pool, really I did.
|Rosie couldn't enter this meet, it was 8 and over only so she got to be in the cheering section. She had the times just not the age. Next year she will show em her stuff.|
|Fueling up between heats.|
|The glare on the water was intense and I couldn't even see her it was blinding. I haven't figured out the settings to cut through the glare and am loving the shadows.|
|L was amazed by all the colours reflected in this shot.|
|Who is this mean looking kid??|
|In the zone!!!|
|And Lily is back with her "winning" smile. As soon as she hits the wall, she switches right back to Lily but when she swims, heaven help anyone she is against, she is a beast.|
|I love this shot. Somehow she is caught in a bubble and looks like Darth Vader. Her eyes are almost scary.|
