We have successfully completed another year of swim lessons!
Clare did great. She learned some new strokes, worked on swimming longer distances, and declared herself the "queen of the backstroke!"
All of the kids are placed in groups according to skill level. Jane and Sydney were placed in the same group, which they loved.
Jane was slightly nervous the first day. She liked her teacher, but wasn't sure she could do everything that was asked of her.
I am proud to say that she pushed through and wound up really enjoying herself AND getting so much better! She went from not enjoying her face being in the water, and now she can actually swim!
This pictures sums it up perfectly....she doing it, but she's nervous!
Is anyone surprised that Sydney is fearless in the water? She is a little fish, constantly swimming around and trying new things.
She improved during these lessons, learned how to take breaths and keep on going and worked on her dives!
Graham, as usual, was a trooper. He didn't seem to mind hanging out and watching the lessons, but I am sure he was glad when they were over!
Another year of swim lessons in the books....and I am happy to say they are paying off.
Good job, girls!
