I don’t know if I am teaching her or she is teaching me.
She had no idea what she was getting herself into when she stood up on that starting block for the first time ever. The speakers sounded swimmers take your mark, a horn rang out, and this was the result.
My four year old jumped in, head first and gave it everything she had.
It was incredible to watch.
There are some people that just jump in, uncertain of what is out there and there are others that tread water and wait for something to come along.
I like to think of myself as someone that jumps in and was hoping that she would be someone like that as well. But watching it firsthand last week was something I will never forget.
Maybe she gets it from me but maybe, just maybe, I get it from her.
