Look At Them Go!

Total proud mom moment here. The kids are almost finished with their swimming lessons, and both have learned so much! I can tell that they will both still need lessons again next year, but they have progressed quite a bit over the last few weeks, and both are swimming!

Here's Little Bean working on his kickers:
Both kids learning how to make their way across the pool by scooting with their arms along the side:
Here Miss O is jumping in and then turning around and swimming to the side:
Miss O happily waiting for her turn while the teacher works with Little Bean:
Little Bean FINALLY figured out his arms in the last two days. What an accomplishment!
Here's Miss O swimming to the side:
And floating:
Having swim 4 days a week has been really taxing on our schedule, but in the end, it was worth it to see the pride on their faces as they learn these important life skills. I wish we had access to a pool outside of swim lessons so that they could practice their new "moves" once swim lessons are over.

Our swimming lessons are going well too. I am very pleased with the progress C and R have made. They will continue swimming lessons at the Y throughout the year. I did this with my oldest son and he is a very solid swimmer; he swam for the Y swim team two years in a row and only stopped because he enjoys other sports and swim team is too demanding to play other sports. Nice job Little Bean and Miss O!

That's so exciting! I was so impressed with how they were doing when you guys were over here already. It's so great for them to have mastered these basics already!

And you know that ANY time you guys want to come this way to the pool, just let me know! I'll join you if I can, and if I can't, I'll just give you the key! ANY TIME!
