Swimming Lessons

Grace and Zachary have been taking swimming lessons all this past week at the Officers' Club Pool. Grace was in a level 3 class and Zachary was in a preschool 1 class. Grace did great. She basically knows how to swim but just lacks the confidence that she needs to do it. So her teacher, Mike, worked with her and helped her gain some confidence and practiced the different strokes. She even jumped off the diving board for the first time! She was so scared at first and even cried a little but she did it and loved it. She wanted to do it over and over after that.

Zachary did okay in his class until the last day and then he refused to even get in the pool. It made me so mad. It wouldn't have surprised me if he had done that the first day but I didn't expect it on the last day of swim lessons.

They will be doing them again the 2nd week of July.
