Long Distance Cheering

We live in an amazing world. One thing that makes it so amazing is technology. Here we are in Arizona. Our granddaughter Kylie was swimming in the state meet in Fort Collins, Colorado, over the weekend. She made it into the finals in the 100 yard freestyle for 13- and 14-year-olds. And we were able to watch the race (well, part of it anyway) on our iPad.

Kylie's mom Liz sent us a text message that the finals would be run live on the internet. Following her instructions, we found the site and began watching the swimmers. When her heat came up, we watched the first lap, then the video stopped. By the time we got it back up, she was done. We did get to see her swim. What a treat!

Congratulations, Kylie! Making it into the finals is quite an accomplishment. We are proud of you.
