Raegan and Kael have finished their first session at swim lessions, and boy oh boy are they excited! I'm thinking swimming will become a regular activity for these two. They LOVE it. Love. Raegan is *this* close to a long term back float, and Kael is really getting comfortable and starting to relax in the water. The absolute funnest day was when the kids got to mess around with the pool noodles. Of course, this was also the one day I didn't bring a camera. But the kids were SO ADORABLE!! Raegan is VERY comfortable in the pool, she has no problem just hanging on to that noodle and kicking for all she's worth to make it move... sprinting underwater. Most of the other kids had a hand on the instructors arm as they walked around the pool area, slinging kids around and getting them used to floating and kicking to move; they looked like a pile of duck chicks toodling around after Mama. So. Cute.
Neither of them passed the skill levels in this class, They have to be able to confidently do a back and front float for a good several seconds. But I'm thinking that Rae will after the next session... Yep! They're doing back to back sessions, starting again on Monday! I am having so much fun with this! And Matt has been able to come every day too, so it has been neat to share this kid-blossoming time with him.
