Niece #2

This is Ciara. She'd probably be horrified if she knew I was posting this picture because she was only five here. And now, of course, she's SIX, and very anxious to begin 2nd grade in September. We arrived home on Saturday afternoon to find a message from her mother calling from the car on their way home from Ciara's first swim meet. She won her heat in the 25-yard freestyle and placed 3rd overall in her age group (6 and under) for the 25-yard backstroke--even beating some of the 7- and 8-year-old's times in the backstroke, as she made sure to point out when I spoke to her later. I told her that the boyfriend wasn't home, having gone to St. John to play music, but that when he came home I'd be sure to let him know what kind of swimmer she is. She piped up, "A good one!" Posted by Hello
