Ashton loved to swim. Since she was young, she was in the water whenever she could be. We took her to Sesame Place when she was around 2 and she had so much fun in the wave pool. She would wade in a little bit and then when the wave was coming try to run out before it reached her. She was laughing the whole way.
We had a pool in our house in Ohio. She loved to swim and play around in the pool. Diving in and doing cannonballs was always good for many laughs.
Swimming was the sport she loved the most. In Ohio, she always swam for a couple of club teams and when we get to Tega Cay, she made the swim team her Freshman year. No matter what her mood might have been going in the water, she was always smiling when she came out.
Water was her happy place. When we moved to Tega Cay, she loved to go into Lake Wylie. There is a boat dock in Pitcairn Park that she would go swimming in the lake. She always had fun there and loved to hang out with her friends.
Swimming was good for her soul.
