Swimmies

The kids have been up at E's parents all week taking swim lessons. Hence my freedom to go to SF, read books, lay by the pool and post about epic jam failures (and successes). E took them up the first day and watched the first lesson, and I picked them up yesterday so I could see the last one. Now that I have my super duper telephoto lens, I was able to properly stalk my children as they showed off all of their skills.

Every summer I'm amazed at how much stronger they look in the water. All of the sudden, Ad has a big kid body. For both of them, it seems like things just click a little bit better than last year. Hanko dove off the diving board and swam the length of the pool. Roo can do every stroke now, and she's working on side breathing for freestyle. Sigh. They're like, all big and stuff.

On the way home we stopped at the outlets to buy school shoes. I think they're all set now. Two weeks left--that's it! I asked them in the car what they wanted to do this summer that we haven't done yet. Ad said "swim every day." Done.
