Yes, it is that time of year again. Justin's Special Olympics Swim Season 2012 started on Tuesday with the first practice.
This year he'll have two practices per week. Yay! Guppies tend to like to get back into the water as much as possible, you know, so two is better than one, DUH!
Just was so excited he couldn't stop smiling even if your threatened him with no more swimming. he was already in the pool, so he wasn't likely to listen to you. Silly Mom!
I did however have to redirect him a few times to get him to listen to Connie, who runs practice and the whole sha-bang. "Listen to Connie, Justin," I said. "Don't look at Mom with the camera. I'm not here."
You're not? Silly Mom! I can see you right there. There's is just no fooling that kid.
Once they were warmed up, they ran...or rather swam some slow and easy laps, just to get back in the swim of things...pun totally intended. Justin is slow and steady all right. Form over speed, that's for him. Speed comes later.
All in all and pretty good start of the swim season for 2012, and it'll only get better from here.
