As I mentioned, it was the year of the backstroke. We probably should have tried for prelims this year, but the girls were just DONE with swimming by the last meet and didn't want to compete in prelims. Bella was the most reluctant to swim again this year, but as with most things, she was glad that she decided to return to the team. She enjoys it, it is just super intense time-wise in the summer. She did well, but was taking the imperfections in her strokes very seriously and personally this year. She is for sure the perfectionist of the 4 children...I feel her pain.
