My Swimming Girls

We started swimming lessons today. We did semi-private classes where it was just my girls. It was AWESOME!!
(Shannon you know I still wish it was you teaching them!!! You HAVE to come home next year to teach swimming lessons!!!)
The girl was GREAT with the girls. She had them going under the water in no time. Amelia was actually a little nervous about it (which suprised me bc she isn't at home) but Abigail is a FISH!!! She was almost swimming back up to the top of the water with very little help!! The teacher Ms. Meridith said she will be swimming the link of the pool next summer! She had them jump off the side of the pool too, but I didn't get a good pic of it!! Hopefully next lesson I will!
She did a ton of swimming safety which is my number one priority.
She taught them to sit on the step to wait for her while she worked with the other one.

Check out Amelia......



Amelia waiting for her turn!
Check out Abigail....
Look at her!!!!
Coming up with a smile!!!
She taught them to do a monkey walk wher they held onto the side of the wall and walked down to the steps with their hands. Amelia could do it by herself by the end!

Her is another progression of Abigail...I was just SOOO proud of both of them!!!!

I can't wait to see what they are doing by the last lesson!!!!

Good for them!! Alex would have screamed his head off the whole time :-) That girl looks like a girl named Sarah that I went to grad school with, but I doubt she would be down in your area...

Oh my goodness, it looks like they had fun! (but it's kind of scary to watch them go under water).
