14 years of early Saturday morning trips to swim meets. 14 years of daily trips to the pool for practice. 14 years of Friday nights spent getting ready for the swim meet. 14 years of raffle tickets, roasters of sloppy joes and lost goggles. 14 years. Who knew?
This year has an added dynamic because Frick is an assistant coach for the 8 and under age group. Therefore, we must be on time to the meet. Yikes.
Before I sent them off this morning( because I have to work at the greenhouse), I gave him this advice...
"Remember to watch your language, Coach Hays, so that you may retain this coaching position."
The first Coach Hays did not laugh. In fact, he told me to shut up.
He better watch his language. Just sayin'.
