Swimming Lessons!

All three kids took swimming lessons this summer they had semi-private lessons, so there were 2 kids to 1 teacher.  I cannot believe how far each kid came during lessons Dorothy went from jumping in to learning to dive and Preston will now jump off the diving board all by himself without any flotation device!  Violet took the mommy and me class (I looked like a whale don't worry!)  She LOVED every single day of it!  She would beg me all lesson long "Mommy please let go of me" she wanted to swim in the deep end all by herself.  She has NO FEAR of the water which is something I wish she did have.  She loves jumping off the edge into mommy's arms (if I go back far enough for her to get a real running start).  It was really fun!
Last day of class I made James come because I was not about to photograph myself in a bathing suit!

Dorothy whoo-hoo!

Cute little swimmers! And as my dad would say - "Better to be a swimmer than a sinker!"

Awesome! Good for Dorothy, Preston, and Violet, now it's time to bring them to Aunt Joan's pool. It needs some little swimmers in it!
