Janie participated in her first swim meet last night. Her coach told her the day before that she was ready and ready she was!! We had our first meet a few weeks ago and only John David was competing. When Janie saw that the little ones were getting ribbons she turned to me and said “hey, I want to do that too, I told you that”. She has asked her coach every practice if ” I can do a meet yet?” She was so excited before we left for the meet…..
Oh my goodness, I can so see her as a teenager in this pic!!!
John David walking her to warm up…
turning in her card for the ribbon…
She got 6th place and was so excited to get her ribbon…
Madeline has been somewhat intimidated with the whole meet thingy
just watched Janie in a state of disbelief…
kind of “and why do you like this so much???’
She said to Janie “but that is last place”
Janie’s response, “It’s pink”
finishing back stroke:)
that teeny tiny body getting out of the pool!
this picture is blurry but it captures her look right as she got out of the pool:)
she always has a smile on her face!
and 3rd ribbon..
Everyone who really knows me knows that I love swimming…..
I really can’t believe that God called me to THIS child only
AND she loves swimming….
God is all about those little bitty details isn’t He??
I am amazed……
this sad little girl I was hauntingly drawn to…
He knew all along…
amazing is the only word that adequately describes such a thing as this.
