Andrew has defied everyone’s expectations as of Sunday. He had his mind set on making Central Zones time for the 50 back stroke on Sunday night during finals at the 37th Annual Speedo Winter Splash. Andrew made it with a time of 33.98! We were told this is very unusual accomplishment for an 8 year old! Also, Andrew is considered one of the top ten swimmers in the United States, as an eight year old.
Central Zone is one of the four zones of USA Swimming. The Local Swimming Committees that are part of the Central Zone are Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Lake Erie, Michigan, Midwestern, Minnesota, Missouri Valley, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Ozark, South Dakota and Wisconsin. https://www.teamunify.com/Home.jsp?team=cenzone

Tim, Heather, Andrew & Uncle Scott went to the Cubs game on July 4th. It was nothing but unbelievable! The “new” stadium is looking great but still has the touches of the “old” stadium (my wife describes it to me!). The Cubs won (you may view my victory dance)!!!! But, the fireworks shows show after the game was loud for me, but amazing for everyone else. Click here, to View Tim dancing over the Cubs win! (side view)
