Frick had another swim meet tonight.
He swam freestyle and backstroke.
He loves to hang on the lane rope to catch his breath (and smile at his adoring fans).
Tonight was the first night he tried backstroke without the aid of a coach (who actually walked in the lane beside him, encouraging him all the way).
Bless his heart.
It took him about 5 minutes to make it across the pool.
But he did it with only a little bit of help at the end.
Upon getting out of the pool, another little guy on the team approached him.
“Here Frick. You can have this,” he said as he gave him his heat winner ribbon from a previous race.
It made my sweet boy’s night.
