Go On V-Man! Great job kid, so i guess in roughly 8 years i should be looking for him in the Olympics? And congrats to his proud Mama as well.

Thanks Kono!

The artist & I are both very proud.

(the artist was also an amazing swimmer & we feared we'd end up with a kid that hated water)

We would love for the V-man to be Olympics bound. Have to hope he doesn't burn out between now & then.

Still beaming... :-)
