Getting there & arriving at Chicago
pretty sure he was showing off his muscles
It sounded to me like these experiences and the new relationships he made were worth the trip in itsself. The competition was just secondary. These are the parts I wish I could've been there to see. I could see him swim anytime but these moments seem priceless. You take a kid who all year gets to see very few other kids that are like him and then put him in a place where he sees other kids like him and he just blossoms. You can just see the joy and excitement on his face. Really I can't wait to get to take him this summer.
