Last day of swimming lessons & feelin' proud!

The kids had their last swimming lesson yesterday. They thought it was pretty cool to get these certificates of participation, and since it was the last day, Abby got to jump off of the diving board TWICE! Daddy even had the day off so he got to watch too. Exciting stuff!

Noah didn't make it off the diving board this time around. The poor kid is actually getting over an ear infection so I didn't think it would be the best time to try it, but NOW he insists that he wants to do it - like Abby. We'll see if he changes his tune the next time we are at the pool.

After only five lessons, they still have a lot to learn and practice, but with those certificates in hand, they were feeling pretty proud of themselves...

Yay for swimming lessons (such a part of being a kid--and so is that first leap off the diving board)! They look so proud, as they should be!

You've reminded me that I need to truck my camera into the pool so I can get a shot of Gracie jumping off the high dive. :)

Congrats to your kiddos. I would have been so nervous with them on the diving board.
