It’s mid January & what shall we do? Go swim!!
Last winter, Silas took a swim class at UofL. We loved it! It is five minutes from our house, very affordable & they have a great facility. The beginner class is for ages three & up, so I thought we would sign the girls up with Si this year.
I will admit, I was unsure as to how the girls’ first class would play out. You just never know with these little girls of mine; sometimes bold & sometimes shy. Esther has been hesitant in new situations lately & I thought she might just watch the first class. But I should never underestimate them! No hesitation, they hopped right in. Big smiles the entire class, they were loving it!
No worries over Silas, he is the owner of the world. A thing that I really admire in Silas is just how much passion he has for everything that he does. That kid knows how to live.
So swimming lessons are a huge hit & a perfect way to burn off some of that winter energy. Can’t wait til next week!
These structured type classes are a new thing for the kids. Swimming last year for Si & he also did a one week day camp at the Louisville Nature Center over the summer. That is all that we have done so far. But I’m thinking its time to spread our wings a little bit.
I am considering a gymnastics class for Silas. That is definitely his scene. Maybe a dance class for the girls as they do like to shake their booties (Oh lord, the cuteness! Can you imagine??). It would be easier on me, logistically, if I put them all into something together, but Silas enjoys having is own thing. I will give it some thought…suggestions welcome!
I am having some big fun these days as my babies become kids. The world is our playground now. We can go anywhere & do anything!
