For the past month, I have had Lily and Derek back at Donna's Dolphins for swim lessons to refresh their skills before the summer. They love being back in the water, and I am so amazed with how quickly they got back to where they left off last year.
Derek even got to have one of his lessons with Donna, the owner. She got so much out of him, I wish he could be with her every week :)
Derek's biggest issue when he swims, is to keep his legs straight. Last week, his teacher tried everything to force him to point his toes and keep his legs straight. She tried the froggy knee straps, fins on his feet, and even a crazy belt thing. Somehow he still managed to bend his knees. Funny kid :).
Lily did awesome in her class, and she loved getting to be in the above ground pool. It has a machine in it that makes a current to swim against, which was so cool. And she loves her new green swim cap :). Her swimming is coming along so well - we are so proud of her.
And once again, Arthur gets to tag along, and is not all that excited about it. At least it isn't as noisy as the track meets, but I don't think he likes how hot and humid it is there. It's all good. He'll get his turn to do fun things when he gets bigger, but for now, he has to watch his older siblings doing the fun stuff :).
