Perfect finish Michael.  Great Job. 

Hard work pays off

Congratulations Emma for breaking the Berks County 50m breaststroke record.  We worked hard for it and YOU DID IT!!  We're all so very proud of you.

For The parents

This is a fantastic video by Walter Bond about inspiring our kids.  Tier 1 is based on this very idea.  When a kid believes in him or herself, amazing things can (and do) happen.  It's not about where you come from....It's about where you want to go.
