Swim Lessons, Take 2

This week Amos is taking his second session of swim lessons, and Maggie is joining him for her first!  After watching Amos' class the first week, I decided Maggie could probably handle it.  Maggie was used to sitting and watching Amos' class, so when I told her she was going to get to swim too, she was thrilled.


Amos fully embraced his big brotherhood, and told Maggie all about what to expect.  She was totally ready to put her face under the water.  Unfortunately, with her comfortableness comes a certain insubordination.  I hear, "Maggie, Ma-ggie, MA-GGIE!!" all through the class.  At one point, Maggie started a squealing "wave" and ALL of the kids followed with shrieks.  Everyone was laughing so hard, no one could get them to stop.

Mags was actually listening at this point, practicing her kicks:


Somehow I managed to get both kids in the same shot with their respective teachers:


Amos is doing great in his second week.  He has a different teacher, but he doesn't seem to care. 


Audrey likes swim lessons too.  It's fun to have her as my only little buddy while we watch the other kids:



I am really going to miss swim lessons when they're done, but there's always next summer!
