Summer Time

I know that yesterday was the first day of Spring, however it felt like the middle of summer. My brain is lagging a little behind this one considering I'm still wondering where winter is. It's as if we just had three months of November and now were skipping ahead to July. I guess that's what I get for living in Maine...the state with ALL four seasons.

This past weekend we had our championship swim meet in Cadiz. Unfortunetly, all of the sight seeing I got to do was the inside of the pool and the bus ride to and from the hotel. Although what I did see was quite beautiful...I got to see the ocean!
The team got first over all:
                                           Our team captains

This is the first time in the teams existance that they have won the winter championship, so everyone was pretty pumped.
Our relay team for the 4x50 free relay placed 3rd which was super exciting for everyone because that was the first time that their girls relay had placed in over 5 years.
                Our 3rd placing relay along with the 1st and 2nd place finishers

I have to say that is meet really made me realize what I've become a part of, also meaning what I am going to have to leave.

                                                        My group!


  1. First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 17 YEARS OLD! You guys look so professional and polished. Hope you were pleased with your swims. Have a great day. I'm sure they will make you feel as special as you are. Love you Heather!

  2. Great Post Heather. I have watched from afar as your new life has unfolded and then to read this post gave me goose bumps. You have come so far and helped Club Natacion get first place....just like Teams and Relays here in the States.

  3. Happy, Happy Birthday Heather!!! I love you and I hope you have a nice bday--17--wow!! We sent you a card, but it will probably get to you way after your bday, given the slow snail mail to you. This will be a different bday for you, in every way possible--I hope you can try to enjoy it, for what it is, knowing that, most likely you will have zillions of American bdays after this year. Cant wait to hear how you decide to celebrate.
    Congrats on the great job you and your team did!! I love cadiz!
    I love you too,
    love, connie
