We took advantage of Brooke’s three-week summer vacation by doing swimming lessons almost every morning. Brooke and Caroline had lessons that were conveniently close to my mom’s house so I’d drop Spencer off there while the girls swam. It was a great plan (in my book, anyway!).
Brooke LOVED swimming, especially when I got her goggles. She hadn’t really put her face underwater much before that but the goggles changed everything and she was underwater more than she was above it!
True to her nature, Caroline was a little more cautious. She would tell her teacher every day that she didn’t want to go “underground.”
Brooke’s reaction to swim lessons:
Unfortunately I ended up taking pictures on the last day which was Caroline’s grumpiest day. Can’t win them all. For the next couple of weeks after swim lessons ended Caroline would wake up every morning and ask, “Mom, am I off track for swim lessons?”
Yes, dear. The torture will resume in one year. Enjoy your break.
