Another exciting month has passed! February was the first month during swimming and diving season that I had two free weekends. It was great to have time to spend with my friends and not in the pool. For the long weekend this month I went to my best friend Kelsey’s house in Massachusetts and went sledding for the first time! Growing up in Florida, I have never experienced winter sports so it was awesome to be able to drive ten minutes to a hill that we could sled on. We went with her brothers and they went first so I could watch someone do it before I tried. I didn’t get hurt, which is a plus and I had a ton of fun so it was a great experience.
I also watched a lot of Olympics on the weekends this month. I absolutely love the Olympics and I wasn’t able to watch them during the week due to school and diving so it was nice to get caught up on the weekends.
NEWMACs was also this month, which was an awesome time spent with the swimming and diving team. NEWMACs is our championship meet, which ends the season for most of the swimmers and divers. We did really well as a team and had some pretty big individual highlights. One of the male swimmers made it to nationals for a second time, which is a huge accomplishment. The weekend was very long and tiring, but very rewarding.
Once again, this month flew by and the corps has one more week to get through before SPRING BREAK!! I am so excited to go home and see my family and friends. Even though I was home a couple of months ago it seems like a lifetime. I miss my family and my house so this week cannot go by fast enough!
