Every summer I put the kiddos in swim lessons to improve their mad swimmin skillz:) This was Cali's first year to do it without me with her in the water. She started off unsure and threw some pretty mean looks the instructors' way, but by day 3 was loving it. It was so fun to watch her get over some fears and enjoy her class. I was really proud of her! Something funny was how she was very anti-male. She would only go to the girl instructor. She would come home every day and say, "I don't like boys!" So funny. Someday that will change. . .I'll enjoy this hatred of strange boys while I can:)
Last summer Ella really learned how to swim, but this year perfected her strokes. I saw huge improvements in her arms with her frontstroke and backstroke. She does it so well! And she is also super speedy. A little fish this girl is! She was lucky to have 3 of her friends in her class this year and had lots of fun. She was always smiling.
Aubrey was in Level 3 swim and graduated to Level 4! She had done Level 3 twice and was really hoping to pass this time around. The smile on her face when they told her she did pass was priceless. She has perfected her rotary breathing and can swim long distances. She can also do all kinds of strokes that I honestly don't know the name of(I never was a huge swimmer!). She looks like a pro out there! And a funny little sidenote, she had a little crush on one of her instructors:) She got into the car after the first day and said to me, "Did you see my instructors mom!?" with this little one eyebrow raised smile:) Silly girl. So while Cali disliked the boys, Aubrey was the opposite. And Ella didn't really care:) All so different!
