The kids’ swim instructor is moving so today was his last day. We will miss him lots—he was really good with both kids and really pushed Owen.
Before Owen’s lesson, his instructor came and told us he was going to be testing Owen to see how he’d do on a swim team. He’s trying to get a local team together and he thought Owen was ready. As far as Owen knew, he was just practicing.
After, the instructor told us he thought he was definitely ready…so he’ll let us know if and when he gets a team together. (They have a team right now but it’s 30-45 minutes away from home so we’re not about to do that.)
We told Owen the news on the way home and his was his reaction:
It’s just them playing before their swim lessons!
This is the first thing I saw when I turned my phone on after my plane landed!! Owen graduated to Shark 2!! He’s been a Shark for just over a year and he tested last week and didn’t quite make it, so of course the week I’m out of town is when he does it! Stinker!
I’m amazed at how much she loves the water and how comfortable she is in the pool! She jumps in regularly (with and without goggles), does cannonballs (complete with holding her knees), and just taught herself to retrieve rings from the bottom of the pool. She turns four in a few days. #proudmama
These are all rehashed photos, but it’s what I posted on Facebook.
Papa and Grannie have been going to swim lessons and Papa brought his camera today!
Grannie brought Katie two new suits—of course she had to wear one to swimming tonight!
The instructors are amazed that she’s only three.
