We enrolled all three girls in swimming lessons this summer at the high school. Vicki and Lexi did it two summers ago and had a blast, but we haven't really had the money for it again until now. We like it there because it's really individualized. They're taught in groups, but as soon as a kid masters the skills required they can progress to the next level. Vicki started out in Level 3 and Lexi in Level 2, but after two lessons Lexi moved up to 3 with her sister! For about 10 minutes, until Vicki moved up to 4! Way to go, girls!!!
I took this picture right after Lexi joined Vicki's class.
They warned me when I signed the girls up that, because Ellie was only 2, if she had a hard time they'd have to kick her out. But she absolutely loves it. Of course, you can't tell that from the picture, but my battery died before I could get a shot of her in the water.
Lessons are four days a week in two-week sessions, but we signed them up for three sessions. The morning of our second lesson, when I told Ellie it was time to get ready for swimming, her eyes got really big and she said, "Again?!" She figured it was just a one-time thing, I guess, but she's so excited to swim every day, and she loves her teachers and plays swimming lessons with her stuffed animals. So fun.
