See, I have this sister and she's competing in the Olympic Swimming Trials... and I think that is freaking awesome!
Although her chance of making the team isn't the greatest, she does have a decent chance and could very well do it... I wouldn't put it past her. She has been working hard for this moment for a long time. I remember when she was 11 and we happened to be on the same swim team (it was before I realized that I really did like to run), our coach had us write down our swimming goals, one immediate goal, one for in the future and one for the future future. I couldn't tell you what my goals were but I do remember one of Stephanie's... to swim in the Olympics.
I of course also remember thinking ha ha, yeah right... but that was also me still being jealous and not having matured enough to appreciate her talent and be proud for her... plus, she was 11, who likes 11 year olds?! Ha ha.
So, anyway, I have this sister and I'm super proud of her. Tomorrow (June 29th) she'll be swimming the 100 free with the rest of our nation's best and on Sunday, (July 1st) she'll be competing in the 50 free. She will be awesome... she always has been.

Good luck Stephanie, we'll be cheering for you... you rock! You're my favorite sister ever. :) Even if you are my only one. Love you.
