We are a household that loves sports so whenever the Olympics roll around, we all get super excited. When it comes to the Summer Olympics, I love watching woman's gymnastics and swimming, my husband loves all of the track and field events and our kids just seem to enjoy it all.
I think this was especially exciting to him because he recognized some of the strokes from his swimming lessons that he is taking this summer. It has been great seeing him become more confident in his abilities and we've had some great SwimWays Swim Steps products to help us along the way.
I asked William to write a letter to Michael Phelps, curious to see what he would write to the greatest Olympian of all time. Here is what our 7.5 year old had to say:
You are the best swimmer in the world. I'm learning how to do the breaststroke in my swimming lessons. I love doing freestyle in my swimming lessons. I hope I am a good swimmer like you when I grow up."
If you were to write to an Olympic athlete, who would it be and what would you say?
