Swim Team

Stella joined the Country Club of Louisiana Swim Team 7 years ago, and since then it has been one of our favorite summer activities!  We've made such sweet friends at the pool...
When Stella joined, you had to wait until you were 5, but the rule changed soon afterward, so Cille, Watts, and Corinne got to join as 4 year olds.  That makes this Watts' 3rd year on swim team...
A silly  shot of our whole team...
And a serious one.  We recruited some friends from school to help us have more male swimmers...
Race ready! 
Cille has the best swim team birthday of any of our children...right after the qualifying cutoff, so every other year she gets to be one of the oldest kids in her age group...
Okay, so Corinne rocked the look and went to practice, but never actually swam in a race the entire season.  That's the privilege of being the baby of the family.  She needs a Caroline in her life...

Ms. Laurie gives the BEST pep talks...

Oops...we were missing one...

Cuties! 

This swim season was bittersweet, because we knew it would be our last with our friends at CCL.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, we bought a house in another neighborhood that has a team of its own, so in the future we'll swim for them.  We are so thankful for the season of life God gave us with such kind and caring friends on this team.  The coaches helped the kids grow as swimmers, but also gave them positive role models.  No matter what it says on our swim caps next year, inside we will still be Dolphins!
