The last two weeks we spent each morning at swimming lessons. The kids had a blast! And since Ellie is still so young I got to participate too.
Here is Avery on the day they talked about water safety.
Our sweet babysitter Elizabeth who took all these pictures for me.
Reece had a rough first day, but after I threatened putting him in the baby class with Ellie he turned around. That apparently was worse than putting his head underwater!
All set to go down the slide, but was never quite ready to do it! She practiced getting rings from the bottom of the pool instead.
Strong legs learning to kick.
Ellie is a fish. She excelled in swimming and was the craziest one in the class. She was jumping off the side and going under water on the first day. At the end of the week there were still some who wouldn't do that! She gave me a great workout in the pool since I chased her in the water as much as I chase her at home!
She loved laying on my shoulder and kicking. The teacher called her Miss Chill in the water because she would close her eyes and be really relaxed.
