On becoming a Nitro.

This fall Sophia and Anna joined the Newton Nitro's year-round swimming team. Honestly, I'm not really sure what a Nitro is, but I guess that's not really the point.  Isabella also joined the team for their winter league.  It's only two months long and is set up to teach the younger ones the basics and work with the older ones on their technique.  She can't really swim yet, but it's only a matter of time I'm sure.  

Last Thursday they had a practice swim meet.  This was the first time we've had all three girls in a meet together.  So cute!   

They were so sweet and had an older girl walk along with Isabella and the other younger ones in the pool so they could at least try to participate.  She was very proud and tried the 25m free, back and fly.  Her little arms and legs were pretty sore that night! 
On Saturday, we took Sophia and Anna to compete at the Monster Splash at K-State.  We had to be on the road by 5:30am, so that meant Chris and I got up at 4:45.  Holy Moly!  I usually wake up at 7am so that was crazy early!   The night before I told Sam we were leaving before the sun would rise and he told me he would not get up before the sun.  A boy after my own heart!  
The girls did great getting best times in all of their events.  Then we walked around campus a little and took a picture in front of the student union to send to Uncle Chris!  The kids' Great Grandpa Walz built many of the buildings on campus so it was great to show them around a bit.  
We've had a busy few days around here, but lots of fun family time together!  And you can't beat that!
