The Dreaded Swimming Lessons
This is how my week started last week. The girls started swimming lessons. The girls who hate getting their hair washed. The girls who would rather do anything than get their face wet. These girls started swimming lessons with a wonderful swim instructor. She is very tough. No whining, no crying while in the pool, you go in willingly or she puts you in. Initially, I had doubts as to whether or not my kids could handle it. But, they can now officially swim! The last few days of lessons they were actually excited to go. Today they were upset because they could not go to Ms. Reita's to swim. It has been an amazing transformation. Now I just need to find a pool to take them to so they don't forget how much fun swimming is.
