Swim star and a soccer layout

Morning! I would like to start out by saying thank you to all of you. I really do appreciate all of your sweet comments and just the fact that you stop by to check out my blog.

This weekend was a swim weekend. As some of you may know, my oldest is a swimmer. She has been on the swim team for almost a year now and I finally been able to get some pictures of her swimming. Every meet I end up on the floor timing and I don't get an opportunity to take any pictures. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind timing but it was nice to be able to sit back and watch her swim for once. I wanted to share a few pictures with you.

This first picture is really not really swimming. K was standing and talking to a friend when she saw me with the camera. She has such a great time and it shows on her face. :)

I wish the pictures of her freestyle were not so blurry. I didn't mess with my camera settings as much as I should have before she started swimming.

The swim club where K swims does such a great job working with them on their form. I just love these pictures of her starts.

Breast stroke is not her favorite stroke but she really did great this weekend. She swam the 5o 14 seconds faster than her best time and came in first for her heat. :) Sadly she accidently did about half a freestyle stroke right after coming off the block and got DQd. She is still quite excited about her amazing time.

Backstroke, her favorite stroke. She took almost 2 seconds off her time here too. :)

I just love this picture. I absolutely adore the coaches at K's swim club. This is her favorite coach. She is just the sweetest. I love how they take time to talk to the kids after each event they swim.

OK, so now that you have seen WAY too many swimming pictures how about a layout. My final layout I got done from my scrappy weekend. I really love the way this layout turned out. Sadly, it did not photograph real well. The pictures are not nearly that harsh. K cracks me up. I don't know many little girls that enjoy being goalie. Personally, I don't want people kicking a ball at my head. LOL But it is her favorite position and she is getting quite good at it.

Some more yummy Magistical Memories nested stars on here. I am seriously addicted! Pattern papers are Basic Grey and that label if from an awesome digital kit I got from 2 Peas called Swank Labels by Jennifer Pebbles.

Have a fabulous week!!!

My 11 year old is on the swim team, too! It's her first year. 14 seconds faster is amazing! My daughter loves the breaststroke, but not the backstroke! I love the swim meets, but we've only been to two. I can't get good swimming photos. Mine are always too dark. Yours look great!
