Swim Lessons

The last two weeks have been filled with swim lesson after swim lesson.  We did a two week course Monday thru Thursday for the older two.  They did a great job.  Ryla's lessons mainly consisted of feeling comfortable in the water, blowing bubbles, and doing learning to kick and do strokes, and finally floating.  Out of 12 areas she completed 10 of them.  I was so proud of her.  
Aidan did all of the same things at level 3 but without any floaties.  He got 12 out of 12.  At the end of the lessons, I couldn't keep them out of the water.  Ryla LOVES to swim underwater and I got tons of compliments on how well she does for her age.  Aidan enjoys diving for swim toys and swimming above water.  They were doing so well that I was able to sit on the edge of the pool while they played.

Noah wasn't in lessons, so I would alternate putting him in childcare and the pool.  He usually preferred the childcare, or as he calls it "class."  Mainly because this is how he "swims" at the pool.
