Summer Fun 2013: The Deep End
The kids finished swim lessons for the summer today, mainly because they'll be at camp for the next two weeks and will miss lessons. Even so, they made enormous progress during the time they did have, so much so that Sis is actually swimming UNDERWATER!!!! This from a girl who wouldn't get her hair wet in June, much less her face. And now she's jumping and diving in, fetching sinker toys, and having a ball, all thanks to her nose-covering goggles AND monetary incentives from Pop while we were in Texas. Bud is doing really well, too, learning the beginnings of freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke (as is Sis.) And he's diving, too! And neither is nervous about the deep end. I'd say we can call them swimmers now.
