Swim Lessons

Maya, Isaac, and Elena are taking swimming lessons. They started last week and had three lessons. They were all three swimming the length of the pool by the end of the third lesson.

In all fairness, Maya and Isaac already knew how to swim. They were just kinda crazy with it. They kicked their legs like they were having a seizure and got everyone within 10 feet of them soaked. Elena, on the other hand, was afraid to do anything without her ring floatie prior to this.
We are all so proud of her quick progress!

I don't know how often you read my blog, but Lis, you are one fantastic teacher! We're so thankful for you!
I had hoped that peer pressure would effect Chloe and she'd want to learn how to swim by the time the other three finished. So far, it's not looking good.

Daniel, however, is begging to learn now. We told him he could take swimming lessons if Chloe will. There's still a few more days, so we'll see. Lydia will barely put more than a toe in the water, so we've got another year for her.

Great new look! I'm so thrilled the swim lessons are working out so well. I was really bummed I couldn't help finance them at this time, so indeed grateful you were able to work out a trade. You clever girl!
