Swimming lessons!!!!



Well, swimming lessons started on Monday and I have been so busy that I am just now posting about it.First off can I just say how much stinking FUN I have had with all those fun kids??It is fun and rewarding to see the kids stop crying and start swimming.I also like seeing the parents excitement of their kids accomplishments.I love teaching.......SERIOUSLY!I have had a blast (besides being cold from cruddy weather)and I am excited to get in the pool on Monday (although I will enjoy my pool free weekend....I am in there for 8 1/2 hours a day)I love every minute of it and I couldn't ask for a better group of kids!!!!!I love every one of them especially my little stinker Tatum.She did pretty good and remembered how to swim for the most part.I am however worried about her ears.Last year she had tubes put in right when the summer ended.I can't for the life of me get her to keep those darn earplugs in so we just swim without them.I have heard that if the pool is well kept that it should be fine but she is now afraid of swimming through the hoop in the deep end and afraid of getting the rings(which she loves loves loves!!!!!)I am sure she will come around and we will figure out a solution.She will have to because she is such a water bug just like her mom.....I LOVES IT!!!PS(I have no idea who this little girl with the goggles on is.I got it from an image search because I have not taken any pictures.I will have someone take some and then I will post them!)

YAY! I'm so glad you love it cause I LOVE that you do it. I think my favorite is Emily. I know I should pick my own son but Emily is just SO DANG FUNNY! See you monday!

How fun, I wish I lived closer so you could teach my kiddos. Also, about the ear tubes...I wouldn't worry about it. Skye had tubes in her ears and was the same way about the plugs so I just let her bath/swim without and her ENT doc said it was fine. Anyway, what a great talent to teach kids how to swim!

Lydia said...

Me too, I wish i lived close so you could teach my girls...maybe someday.

Sarah Hawkins said...

Yea! Brady starts in June, he is excited, hopefully he does MUCH better than last year!

Jaime said...

Okay I totally wish we lived there to sign up my kids with you. I'm sure you are an amazing teacher. My daughter doesn't listen to me worth anything so I always have to get her in lessons with someone else. But she is definately a water bug. I'm glad you like what you do! Have fun!

Hey Shelley... it's Amber Rohner. I am bummed that I can't bring Cannon this year, living in QC has really cramped my style ;o) He still talks about how he loved getting the rings so for the kids to have fond memories a year later, I think you are doing something right!

My mom wants to put Gracie in swim lessons. Maybe you could squeeze her in somewhere.

Emily R said...

Sounds like fun for all involved! The crying must be a challenge at first, so great job!!

Shelley-
Yes, I have entered the blogging world. I am very slow at it, but its coming. Your blog is sooooo cute. And yes, Cannon loves the camera. All of my children love to pose. I often find the camera missing and when it's recovered there are all sorts of strange pictures my kids took of eachother.
You sound so busy. . .Hope you guys are doing good!
Luvs-
