Summer Fun: Swimming

July 8th, 2009

Mr Chiots and I don’t have any children, but we have 2 nieces and a nephew and a new little niece (at least that’s what they say) on the way any day now. My sister has them all in swim classes this summer at the local pool. (more photos on Flickr if you want to head over there and check them out)
They were super excited to show me all of the swimming skills that they are learning so I went to one of their swim classes last week.
Hannah, the oldest, is doing great and she moved up to a level 3 this week.
It was a lovely day for swimming, nice and sunny, but it was a little cold as you can tell by poor little Heidi’s purple lips.
They sure do have fun at swim classes. I think swimming is definitely a fun activity for kids.
I don’t get that excited about swimming, in fact I think it has been more than 15 years ago since I was actually in a pool. Perhaps I’m just not a water person, I’d rather be gardening for sure.

What about you, do you love swimming in the summer or are you more of a dry land kind of person?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
