An Era Comes to an End…(sniff, sniff)

Four years cheering in the bleachers–sometimes while our daughters swam against each other–these friends and I have been together. This year our daughters will graduate and our time in the stands together is over (though I’m hoping one will get her sons back into swimming).

When we moved to Johnson City, I wondered where I would meet my friends. It was soon evident that the most natural place would be the place that I spent the most time with my kids…at the pool! Now eliminate that picture in your head of poolside babes. WE weren’t swimming, NOR were we sunbathing. We were cheering for Barracudas and Science Hill Toppers.

I’ll miss you, friends.

Cheering for our state qualifiers in Nashville.

Some of us are "wilder" than others.

  1. I’m so glad you’ve had such wonderful friends to share the dedication and excitement you’ve experienced through all the swim team times : ) I’m glad I’ve gotten to meet some of your friends and thankful that some of your meets have been here in Nashville!!!
