So, of course we had a swim party and Papa fixed lasagna for dinner. The kids have been taking swim lessons at Seal School for the past 3 years and now swim like little fish. We still have them use the floats and noodles but that is more to give us a bit of a break..."jump to you, Papa", "swim to you Mommy". The joy they have in our pool is beyond measure. Best thing we ever did was to buy this pool that came with a house attached...lol.
We practice swim safety and there are always one adult per child when we all swim. When we found out Kristen was pregnant with the twins, we installed a four foot fence between the pool and the lanai with a pool facing latch. We had help from a good friend with this .
In Seal School the kids are taught survival swimming, flip to back breathing, and swim to the side.
Today was the boys first day back to school. At 4, they are in a pre k 4 class at their mama's school which helps. This will be Leighton's last year at Montessori and, next year, she will join her brothers. Happy end of summer to you and bless the teachers everywhere!
