Julien just finished the UVRays summer swim camp. He improved a lot in the past 2 months that he trained with them. He loved it so much. While in the camp, Julien was able to participate in 2 swim meets where he did very well. Thursday was the last day of the swim camp, and the coaches announced who would be allowed to move up to the swim team. I was sure that Julien would not be asked because he was one of the youngest, and the slowest on the camp. But to my surprise... HE MADE IT! He was so happy, and we were so excited for him. Only 3 out of 18 made it I believe. It is a huge accomplishment. So now he is officially on the UVRays Swim Team. He swims 5 days a week for 1 hour. He is exactly in his element. Julien has always been a good little swimmer even as a little toddler. I remember when Jon would throw him in the pool and teach him to swim under water as a little 10 months old (I was mortified of course). And now he is a bright and adorable 9 year old swim champion.
