8 year olds at work

Peyton and Paige (who knows.. she's a little nutty)
Ripped baby backs. Must get that from their dad
Peyton winning the back stroke


Peyton and Paige absolutely LOVE swimming! Personally, and I admit bias, I think they're great. Paige dives in like a pro, and Peyton slices through the water like it's butta. (that's for all espn watchers...like me) Peyton tends to take the competition a little more seriously, which she comes by honestly :) Paige loves to swim, but doesn't mind having a little fun while she's at it. All in all, it makes for a fun EARLY saturday morning. Dad usually stays behind to keep an eye on Gee Gee for me. Here are a couple of pictures showing both competitiveness and light heartedness.

Don't forget to add they get their love of swimming from their MOTHER..I only wish I cold take credit for their fantastic back muscles...

Their swimming ability is absolutely from their mother, and maybe some from me. Others were pretty much anti-water until their teens or some still are!

That insinuation about others not knowing how to swim was below the belt, but true. The girls are always trying to teach me. "You can do it, Grammy, just put your arms out this way,etc". At 63, I've given up on learning to trust the water; but I love watching the girls glide thru. Their mother and their auntie were very good swimmers, PTL.
