Swim Meet #3 of this Season

Catherine competed last night in her 8th swim meet (5 last year, 3 so far this year).  She did great!  After her warm up lap, she struck a pose for the camera:
During her actual race I was so proud of her because she stayed in the center of her lane, not even thinking of hanging onto a rope.  I love to see Catherine's improvement: she has gone from having to grab the wall every 15-20 feet, to swimming towards the wall and thinking about grabbing it, to knowing that she doesn't need to grab the wall and staying in the center of the lane.
She still won't jump off the starting blocks, but maybe by the end of this season she'll get up the nerve.
