Josh & Eden in the swim finals

Here is a fun short video of Eden and Josh in their various swim meets and the finals for their swim team this summer. They both did AWESOME! They got up every morning (MON - FRI) and swam at 7:45 a.m. Then, they had meets each Saturday. They swam in the preliminaries and Eden qualified for the Butterfly (out of more than 60 girls her age). Josh qualified for all 3 strokes he tried out for (Backstroke, Freestyle, and Butterfly). They only take the top 16, so it was great for them to get to swim in the finals. They did awesome! We are so proud of them. The song in the background is from the movie "Henry V" -- and I LOVE this small section of it.

WOW! Having a pool in your backyard really does pay off! They are awesome swimmers. Maybe they'll teach my kids a thing or 2 at Lagoon-a-beach! =)
