Next is the City/County meet in two weeks and Maddie has qualified in at least three events. A year ago the kid couldn't swim. I'm proud of her. The swim team has been a blessing on a number of levels and I highly recommend it as a sport for children (unlike some of the ball sports that I played growing up).
