champion rosie!

(pictured: gastone, my husband/ rosie's dad and rosie---- and random unknowns)
OK OK i know i am one big fat braggart,(i never pass up a chance to brag) and i know i am going too far with this -- i am sure i am driving everyone crazy, but damn it, rosie did a great job at the CIF prelims today. cousin fred, listen to this:
rosie is only a freshman, age 14! she broke two high school records. one of the records was 33 years old (for 200 yard IM - individual medley) and again in 100 yard breaststroke. she qualified 4th in breast and 8th in 200 IM. remember this is southern CA where all swimmers are exceptionally fast...., so this is a big deal.

especially to our family.
so excuse me while i brag about one of my kids--my face is beaming so bright tonight, someone could probably borrow it to fix a car engine at midnight. er....... (don't ask me, im drunk from celebrating).

the finals are saturday afternoon (2 p.m.) at rancho bernardo high school - come everyone who wants to cheer my baby on..
200 yd. IM time 2: 14.49
100 yd. breast time: 1:08.89

Yea for Rosie and yea for a mom who recognizes a really, really big accomplishment and deservedly screams it out - - that's not bragging, that's just being a mom. Always celebrate the big ones like this.
