swimming lessons

We just finished the first session of swimming lessons this summer.

It was two weeks, four days each week.

Doesn't sound like much, but when you have to get everyone up, fed and ready to go, pretty early in the morning, drive to Kamas, hold a 2 year old while being 8 months pregnant, and have kids in classes at different times, it can get a little nuts.

Overall though, it was a good experience. 

Mary did a diving class, and absolutely LOVED it!
She dove off the diving board for the first time.
And by the end of the session, she was diving BACKWARDS off the diving board and doing flips off of it.

Sam started the session not really being able to swim.

He ended the session swimming across the deep end!!!
He has been afraid of the deep end, so I was extremely proud of him.  Even better, he was proud of himself!

William had a blast learning different swimming strokes and playing Mr. Wolf.  He grinned through every single class, and was just happy to be there.

Luke was actually pretty good at sitting my lap during the boys lessons and watching the cleaning guy vacuum the floors.  Then I would take the boys to the bleachers where we would eat snacks and watch the rest of Mary's diving class, before heading home.
By the end of the session, we had this swimming lesson thing down to a science.
They start the next session in a week.  I can't wait to see the improvement that will bring.
Hooray for swimming!
