Calder was a "Ripple" on the Tidal Waves swim team this summer. He absolutely loved it! The Ripples is a developmental squad for 4-6 year olds, so it basically doubles as pretty cheap swim lessons. They get to "compete" in a few meets over the summer as well. Calder was able to compete twice in the 4-6 year old meet (called the Lollipop Meet) and it was super cute! Everyone cheered them on and they were so proud of themselves at the end.
They have older members of the swim team swim along with the Ripples during the meet in case they have any trouble. Calder was very excited to have our neighbor who sometimes babysits for us as his "partner".
