Jingle Bell 2009

YAY it's Jingle Bell time! This is one of our favorite meets. Maybe because it was our first meet ever, or that the kids get tons of candy canes, but probably because the awards are easier to get. This meet gives awards by ages which means that even though Ryan swims the 8 and Unders, she got awards based on 7 and unders. Ribbons and medals found their way to the HomerHouse after this meet, we had some awesome swims and even a STATE CUT!!! Jared has been working SO hard to get a State final time. We are now official to go to Savannah in February for Jared to compete in the 50 Breast. He is working on the 100 Free, 50 Free and 50 Back as well. We shall see. Here are some pics of the day. This is a hard pool to get shots of because parents are not allowed on the deck.

"I DID IT!!!"
This picture makes me cry. I ran down to the deck and got the biggest, wettest hug of my life. He was SO happy!! Way to go Jared!

Here's the recap:

50 Fr 5th place (ribbon) 14 points
25 Back 9th place 9 points 1 second
25 Fly 4th place (ribbon) 15 points
25 Breast 2nd place (Medal) 17 points
100 IM 6th (ribbon) 13 points

She got a total of 68 points for her team! Way to go Pinkie :) No best times but 3 ribbons and a medal, AWESOME!

100 Free 12th place 5 points
50 Back 13th place 4 points
50 Breast 2nd place 17 points STATE CUT :):)
50 Free 10th place 7 points
100 IM 9th place for 9 points

He shaved time off his personal best in EVERY event, fantastic! He got 42 points for the team and a medal for his 50 breast. Oh, and did I mention a state cut for that event as well??? Can you tell we are super excited?! :)
