If you look closely, you can see Ella winking at me. It made me laugh:) She is so cute.
Kick, kick, kick. Look at Ella's perfectly pointed toes. She was a great listener and always followed the directions to a tee. See how those other kids feet are like totally flyin' everywhere! Ella rocked them! I'm mean:) But you know I'm kidding.(Do I really have to clarify when I'm kidding anymore? Or can I just joke meanly and leave it at that?)
Aubrey jumping in! (She would NOT have done this last month!)
Cali and my friends daughter, Naomi, just chillin out. It was fun to have my friend, Sarah, there to chat with while our kids were in lessons.
Swim pro, Aubrey
Here's video of Ella jumping into the deep end in her lifejacket. The child before her jumped in and then started to cry. After that, I saw quite the panicked look on Ella's face and thought, great, now shes not going to do it. But then the teacher said, "Your turn Ella!" and Ella just did it. You can't tell in the video how big she was smiling, but she was beaming! She was so proud of herself! If you can't see the video on the blog(which I can't, darnit, whats up photobucket?), click here to view it. Also I need to give this warning: I sound like a lunatic on this video.
In this clip, you can see Aubrey doing her frontstroke and then her backstroke(or frontcrawl/backcrawl, I'm not savy on the swim terminology:) I think it helped that her goal was the muscley lifeguard she had a leetle crush on:) He really inspired her(I'm not kidding actually).

Great job girls!
