Post 1 of 7

Swim team sign ups are under way -

Suits are on sale at Old Navy -

The PG Pool is being filled -

And Josh has had his first pool time of 2009!

Last week a small group of swim fanatics (ok, Lisa was the only fanatic) went to the rockin' awesome Davis County athletics facility to be in the presence of SWIMMING GREATNESS.

Josh was able to get in the pool and be coached by David Salo!

What do you mean "who's that?"

David Salo, the famous swim coach who has coached people like Amanda Beard, Aaron Peirsoll, Jason Lezak and others!

(How's that for some name dropping?)

And Josh was able to watch swimming demonstrations from Kirsty Coventry!

Don't give me the 'who's that?' again.

Kirsty Coventry, the Zimbabwean swimmer who won the Gold Medal at the 2008 games in the 200m backstroke (World Record time) and three Silver Medals in the 200 IM, 400 IM and 100m backstroke!

Lisa and I had the ultimate priviledge to sit and talk with both David Salo and Kirsty Coventry in a question and answer session.

Here's what I learned:

Doodling squares is fun.

And Zimbabweans have cool accents.

Yahoohhoooo! Yes, Zimbabweeans have cool accents, and PG Swim Team has the coolest coach and Team Mom! Did Josh love it?! Jill thought it was all pretty cool and was rightly healous that Josh got to get wet on this one and she didn't.
