Spent this weekend being “Sports Mom,” which means soccer and swim for my family.
We were waiting for Lyle’s last event when a kid in front of us asked him what he was swimming.
Lyle: 100 breast.
Kid: Heat 2? (Because that’s the heat he was in as well as another NCHSkid.)
Lyle: Heat 7.
Kid: Wow! That’s the final heat. You must be fast!
Lyle: Not really.
Me: He’s fast. I’m his mom and I can say it. He’s fast.
Maybe not as fast as the kid who won the race and is going to swim at Notre Dame. But he’s come a long way from heat 2 last year and that’s something to celebrate.
