Swim Lessons

In preparation for our vacation and summer, the kids took 3 rounds of swim lessons with Coach Wes.  Lia was "scared" of the water and needing the most help so she took a private session while the other two had their lessons in small groups of 2 or 3 kids.  Cecilia was kind enough to open up her house and pool to several families and the kids enjoyed playing together between lessons.  We were able to have pizza for lunch to take care of the "I'm starving..." issues that come with being in the sun and the water... so it worked out really nicely.

 Lia is telling Coach Wes that he better not let go of her!

Now she is enjoying a little swimming independence with two noodles under her arms.  You may not be able to tell, but she is smiling in this picture.

Emily was already swimming like a fish, but Coach Wes was able to help her technique on all the different strokes.  She needed quite a bit of work on breathing to the side on her freestyle instead of just throwing her head up in the air to breathe.  She improved quite a bit each time.

And David, who was petrified of the water last year, is now swimming like a fish!


  1. I look forward to seeing Nelli fish in the sea, even my Lia bear!! Way to tackle that fear, little bear!

  2. I guess it's technically an ocean :)
