This summer we embarked on a new adventure: Ludi joined the Ferguson Swim Team.
We heard about it from a fellow Ferguson mom. When we saw the team marching in the July 4th parade, we thought it might be something fun to try.
So this spring we let Ludi and Josie give it a shot. It had been long enough since Josie last set foot in a pool that she was uncomfortable and didn’t do well that first day. We decided to put her into regular swim lessons with the rest of the kids, but let Ludi try the team.
The swim team involved a lot of work and commitment, but Ludi really thrived. The daily practices greatly improved her swimming ability and her strength. She learned several strokes and competed in meets in freestyle and backstroke.
Yoli and I took turns volunteering as timers and working in the “bullpen” helping shuttle kids around during swim meets.
