The kids all took swim lessons this summer since it's absolutely essential to know how to swim here. The kids were a little nervous at first, especially Cole (surprise, surprise), but they ended up loving them. On Cole's assessment card (like a report card on the last day) under the suggestions part, the teacher wrote "Don't argue with the teacher so much, Cole! Ha Ha! Good job!" Apparently he handled his nervousness about doing new things in the pool by arguing with the teacher and saying he wasn't going to do them. I sure am looking forward to his high school years!!!
These are some pictures that a friend took.
On the last day the instructors took them down the slide. Cole (of course) was crying at first but then loved it.
Ava was crying too and kept saying, "I'm scared!" It sure looks like she's having fun once she got on, but she refused to let me think that she liked it and still said, "No, I scared!" when I told her she did a good job.
