Last week we started swimming lessons at the aquatic center in Bellingham. All 4 girls are in class at the same time, and either Ed or I go in with Elise to a parent/child class. The only reason she's in a class too is because it'd be impossible to keep her out of the water for a half hour while her sisters had lessons. She's too old for the class she's in, really, even though technically it's for kids up to 3 years old. She's fearless, though, so it's good for her to be learning to kick and blow bubbles and all that stuff. Here are some pictures:
Elise is already testing the water as Ed & Becca wait for her teacher to call her name.
Sarah practices a special leg kick with the kick board. She does A LOT Of lap swimming in her class.
Bethany is doing a front float. She has also been learning to tread water for long periods of time.
Becca's working on her back float.
This is a two-for-one photo: Becca doing another back float and Elise & her daddy during circle time!
