Swimming Lessons

Today we finished up the boys' swimming lessons- they both did so well! Both passed to their next level and I am very proud of them.

This is Owen with his class...

I love this picture because it looks like he is going UP to the slide but really he just slid down on his front...

Here he is with his report card and a treat bag that his fabulous teacher gave him.
Here is Aiden with his class... yes, there really were just 2 of them! But I think it was for the best because the teacher was able to give lots of individual attention and my son thrives on that.
I don't think the sweet little girl in his class knew what to do with Aiden- she would often just stare in awe and amazement at him flailing about all over the pool!

"Hi Mom"

I really am so proud of Aiden- he didn't have even one single tantrum or freak out during ANY of his lessons! Sure he was hyper and all over the place but he didn't hit anyone, he didn't cry, he was AWESOME!!!
Olivia was rather distressed that she didn't get to go swimming too but I think she enjoyed playing with the other kids who were waiting.

This is Olivia saying "Cheese"
I think my kids are really going to miss going swimming every day! Next summer we'll have to try and save up for a family pass for the summer because it is just far too expensive for the five of us to go swimming all the time!

look at your water babies!

that picture of owen going up the slide is great!

this post reminds me of when my family lived in rural manitoba and we often spent all day long at the pool, every day, all summer long!!!

it wasn't abnormal for me and my sisters to be the only one in our swim class because we buzzed through the levels very quickly, sometimes 3 in one summer.

it sucked to be upper level because those classes were held in the wee hours of the morning and the water was chilly, and it aways started with the endurance swim. but, the feeling of chlorine burned eyes at the end of the day and being absolutely starving was the best!

then during winter, we'd spend all our time at the rink!

three cheers for small town prairie life!
