Advance to Polliwog

The kids finished up swim lessons yesterday.  To say they had a great time would be an understatement.  They were in the same "Pike" class, with two other little girls (one of which will go to Maggie's school, so we made a friend!). 

I never did take my camera to swim class.  No one else ever had one, and it made me wonder if it was allowed...there are so many rules here!  I break them all the time without realizing it and it stresses me out.  Anyway, I did try to get some pictures before class at the house one day.  It turned out hilarious...

Trying to get Amos and Maggie...



And Audrey was having none of that...



And neither was Wardie...



Amos turned into this super motivated "I'm going to swim" kid.  I swear, this summer he just makes up his mind he's going to learn something and then he learns it.  Between swim classes, he took many baths so he could practice holding his breath under water.  It paid off though, because Amos can swim.  When I register him for fall, he'll be a "polliwog."  Maggie is close, but she'll stay a "pike."  I was really proud of her, she's come a long way from the girl who had to sit in time out most of the class.

For scrapbooking purposes, their report cards:
