My head is about to explode.

Stop.

If you are sick and tired of hearing how awesome my daughter is
go to some other blog right now, of go read about how bad the economy is
on foxnews.com, or go play online Scrabble, or go back over to Facebook,
where you were before you got here.


OK.


I have two bits to share.
The first one is great
the second one I can hardly comprehend.

Last night were invite-only awards at Middle School.
Hannah received a special award for excellence in English.

If she wasn't walking so dang fast back to her seat.....
anyway.

Here she is with her very best best peeps,
that are NOT swimmers.
They were all being honored for one thing or another.
If you've even been on her FB, you know for sure
she wasn't receiving this award for Spelling....
but nonetheless, I was so proud of her for her accomplishment.


So this great news was trumped earlier in the day, by something I still
can't wrap my brain around.


Drum roll please.........


Remember over the weekend,
Miss Crazy swam the 1/2 mile and the mile?


oh, wait.......and LOVED it?


Well in the easiest terms I can possibly muster up
to explain this......

(crap, I am working on getting this so you can click on it.....)

Her ranking is


NUMBER 2



IN


THE


UNITED STATES.




THE WHOLE FRIGGIN COUNTRY!



for the mile swim - 11 year olds.


She is also ranked 6th in the US
for the 1/2 mile - 11 year olds.




So long course is approximately 2 more months where someone
inevitably may swim it faster or she may even swim it again...
faster.......
but for the next week at least my baby is number 2.



OK END OF SICKENING BLATANT BRAGGING....

BLAST AWAY PROUD MOMMA !!!

We are proud of Hannah also, but not for school work, not for swim, not for loving her awesome brothers . . . . we are proud of her because she is HANNAH!! She makes her choices, sticks by them, strives to be the best at them, is passionate, and sometimes makes mistakes, but learns by them . . . JUST LIKE HER MOMMA !!!

Liz said...

Congrats to you, Hannah - and her Mama and fam - it's a team effort!

No need to apologize for bragging - she earned it and you're proud of her, as are we.

She's the full package - beautiful, smart, committed to her sport, and super-motivated. She rocks!
