Friday Fun: Killer Ducks & State Swim Prep

This weekend our oldest (9) swims in two relays at the 12 & Under Short Course State Swim Meet.
He'll swim a 50 free as part of the 200 Freestyle Relay and a 50 fly as part of the 200 Medley Relay. I'm really excited for him and the Sharks!
Last night the team had its state pasta party at the high school and each swimmer got a bag of goodies.
Inside Truitt's bag was a rubber duck. He explained later that he and his teammates noticed the duck has long eyelashes, which was not acceptable. So they took their sharpie markers and decorated the ducks.
Meet Killer.
It makes me smile. I love being his mom and watching him grow up.
Questions for You:
- What would you name this duck?
- How do/did you prepare for big meets, tournaments, matches etc?
Photos by me.

I love the duck, I love the name killer, and I love that they had a team bonding experience before the race! :)

Hope they did well!
