The boys had swimming lessons for one hour each day for two weeks. It was nice for them to have swim lessons during the heat wave of the century! They did pretty good. This was Zachary's first time and he did OK. There were some days of not participating, not sure how much he learned, but other days of doing well. It is part of being three, I suppose. Aidan was moved up on the first day from Level one to Level two. It seemed like he should have been in between the two levels somewhere! He has more work to do, but came a long way this summer!
On the last day they open up the whole pool for play time. It is the only time kids that cannot really safely swim get to do the big slides and the diving boards because the lifeguards catch them. The kids were really looking forward to it this year. Zachary started with the safe dolphin slide.

Crystal, Zachary's teacher, taking Zachary and another three year old down the big slide. It took some convincing, but they both did it!
If you remember from last year, Aidan was determined for months to go off of the high diving board on the last day of swimming lessons. So, when this year rolled around, I asked him if he was going to go off of the diving board (thinking the smaller one) and of course, he replied that he did the high diving board last year so he had to do it again this year. That kid just climbed right up and jumped off like it is no big deal!
