Swimming Lessons

Mack and Sophie are taking swimming lessons this month for 18 days! They started last Wednesday and have cried pretty much every day. They cry when I drop them off but when they are not at lessons they talk about how great it is. The woman who is teaching the class has been teaching for 40 years and has taught some of the parents of some of the kids taking classes now. I like that she has so much experience. The parents are not allowed to stay during the lesson because of all the crying but I have managed to watch a little bit without them seeing me. They are really doing great. It is hard for me to drop them off with Grace asking to go swimming with them. I hope to get her into some kind of swim therapy soon. I REALLY wish they could all take lessons together but well...that's not the way things have worked out for us.

Awww I know what you mean. I tried to put Nathan in the same swim class as Owen last year but unless the water is really, REALLY warm, he just stiffens up and can't do any of the exercises. He definitely needs a specialized swim class in a pool that is warm enough for him in order to keep his muscles relaxed as possible.

Brings back those wonderful swimming lesson memories of when Macey & Darcey would beg (cry)not to go and the wrestling matches just to get (& keep) their swimsuits on. Remember, it flies by.....
