Swimming Lessons

Bubba and Mimi are in swimming lessons right now. They do them in a family’s backyard pool with two college-aged boys teaching. These boys are so laid back and calm with the kids and the girls are loving it.

Here’s Mimi “cheating” by picking the shark up with her toes.

Poor Baby doesn’t get to do lessons this year, but so far she’s been placated by wearing her swimsuit and snacking during the lesson.

They have learned so so much in these small lessons. Bubba’s crawl stroke is so much better and more controlled than when she started. She’s also starting to turn her head to breathe instead of lifting her head straight up. We’ve been toying around the idea of joining swim team and the progress she has made this week alone is leading me to think that it would be a good fit. Mimi is swimming with her face in the water, floating and kicking at the same time. She goes under completely to retrieve objects and jumps off of the side with abandon. These are big leaps from where she was last week.
