I think we are lucky, we never pay to watch swim meets in our area. I know from talking to other parents that many places you have to pay to get into the meet.
Grace is swimming at The Tom Dolan Invitational. I stayed home with my cuddle bugs today and sent dad. He just called me annoyed that he has to pay five bucks to get into the meet.
Last weekend we used about $85 in gas. Spent nearly $60 on meals. Another $50 on tolls. Oh and a pair of goggles at the meet for the low price of $22.
Pay the $5.
This morning when Grace was leaving for warm ups I handed her a $5 out of his wallet. I debated giving her the two that were in there but at the last minute decided to be kind and leave one *just in case*. That very well may be the best decision I have made all year!
Go Grace go.
She met Katie Ledecky after warm ups and got her photo taken with her. Very cool.
