I have noticed that now that the kids are in school I realize that summer has gone a lot faster. Although it could be because we didn't really know anyone last summer and now we have friends. I decided that the kids needed swim lessons this summer, so in the last couple weeks of summer I finally got them into the lessons. And they love it!
I took some videos also, for my Mom and Eric to see their progress. Gwen and Nate are actually in the same class, there are 2 instructors and they split up the younger kids into a separate group. So they seem to be in separate classes. Gwen has improved so much, but I'll let the videos speak for themselves.
If you listen closely, you can hear Nate squeal with delight when his teacher twirls him around.
Gwen floating, not thrilling, but note worthy.
Every week the "older" kids swim the length of the pool.
Jumping in and swimming to the edge
After the swim lessons we go to the playground and they have water to play with, the kids love it...
