He is a Swimmer

It took us many tries until we finally found “his thing.” He sang, danced, played baseball, took up crocheting, tried acting and dabbled art. While he was good at some and not so good at others, none seemed to hold his attention very long.

Until he got in the water.

Suddenly all the pieces of puzzles seemed to fit.

Instead of a fish out of water, he was a fish in water.

The time commitment didn’t seem to faze him. 6 days a week, 2-3 hours a day. And neither did the repetitive nature of practice. Lap after lap, only to flip around and do it again. He swam when it was 117 degrees outside and he swam when there was snow on the ground. Nothing has made him stop and say “I don’t want to do this anymore.”

He is committed.

2012-11-21 08.51.24And his commitment over the past two years has finally paid off. He was selected to the 200 IM and 400 IM Junior Olympic relay team. It’s an appointed position, not one he earned based on his times, but the Head Coach said “he’s the smallest and the slowest on the team, but man, that kid has potential.”

That’s a pretty cool vote of confidence.

So next weekend he will compete at the Southern California Swimming 2013 Short Course  Junior Olympic Championships. Right now he’s very nervous and superstitious about it. If you ask him about it or congratulate him he will likely just stare at you. He is convinced that acknowledging it in any way will jinx him.

With all that superstition he should have been a hockey player…

We are very proud of him.
