Here are the dives I wrote about--and I promise they're only a few seconds long too. The first one is his 2.5. He just started throwing that in the meets (doesn't it sound like I'm too cool--'throwing it'?). So when you hear my excited 'he made it he made it!' it's not because I didn't have any faith in him. It's because I didn't have MUCH faith in him. There's a difference.
But...he made it! He made it! I guess I didn't ahve much faith in his back 1.5 either because I said the same thing--and he's been doing that awhile now. I'll try harder to say something like 'mmmhmm...yawwwwnnn...show mommy something else, I'm nodding off here!' next meet.
* *I was made aware tonight that Cody's first dive was under-rotated. Umm...okay..my point might have been lost here--this was his FIRST time throwing this dive in a meet and he had just learned that dive a few days prior. Pretty freakin good...wonder why kids feel so much pressure these days! Trust me nobody knows more than Cody knows when he isn't perfect. PS--he did perform this dive to NEAR perfection Saturday morning at districts, but I didn't download that one yet. I will..
