If you have lived in Raleigh long - and have kids - you have probably heard about summer swim teams.
Pretty much every neighborhood has a pool and pretty much every pool has a swim team. It is pretty much a Raleigh tradition. The league itself is huge. Huge.
The website for the Tarheel Swim Association says it is, "North Carolina's largest summer recreational youth swim league! Over 10,000 athletes aged 18 and under competed last summer for TSA's 78 member teams."
This is Big Girl's second summer swimming and she is sooo excited.
Last night she made it all the way across the pool (25 yards) without stopping or getting help. So, today she gets a prize. (Gotta love good ol' fashioned bribery.) A bright purple swim cap!
