Swimming Lessons 2014

The kids did their third year in swimming lessons this summer. We generally care for them in the first two weeks of July and request that swimming lessons are a part of our gig. They have both made significant progress since the first lessons.

Both kids with their classes and teachers ↑ . I rather doubt that the kids were quite getting the crawl that the teacher was explaining so sincerely to JJ's class. There's a time when things click, and this was likely not it.

They both received lots of help and attention, however. ↓

Meanwhile, grandma chose to watch from the doorway. ↓ The pool area is hot and muggy, and grandma does not do heat well these days. But she kept a very close eye on the munchkins from her vantage.

Speaking of things not clicking yet, at a more advanced stage, Danica was hard-pressed to keep up as her teacher requested many lengths each day. She hasn't quite mastered the art of breathing on her front, so she has to stop and catch her breath every few strokes. I've got to hand it to the kids though; she hangs in and perseveres.

What with Amma and Buppa's Excellent Summer Camp, Celtfest and swimming lessons, I have been busy catching up with photos lately, but videos are on my todo list.

I think this is one of the best skills we can teach our children and we must give them all these lessons to save them from themselves.

Can you send me the teacher please.

Our Zoe is practicing distance this summer. She is well advanced, but doesn't have the strength for a lot of laps.

Please tell gramma that once in the water the world feels fine again. :)

It's an excellent sign that Danica is perseveres even when she finds the task hard.
