Swimming Lessons 2008

Well, it's that time again! Time to go swimming at Jeri's! She is just the best teacher - doesn't put up with the wimpiness or "I cant's" from the kids!

This year Jentry learned the front crawl, back crawl, arrow, how to dive and surface dive! (She learned some other strokes, but I can't remember what they are called!) Jentry is quite the little fish and loved diving!

Haleigh, who is terrified of getting her face wet (yes, still screams and cries everytime I wash her hair) was not so thrilled. After crying, screaming, hiding under the picnic table and clinging to me like a scared baby monkey for the first three days, she finally learned to like it. She has learned to bob, hold her breath under water :), float on her back and dive down to get toys off the bottom of the pool. Today she didn't even want to get out of the pool! It's a miracle!

Way to go girls on the swimming lessons! I am so glad that Haleigh is doing so well and as for Jentry, she is a better swimmer than I am. I don't think I could do a dive if I tried. I am so proud of the girls and how well they did, that is awesome.

Jeri & Sadie are both miracle workers!! The girls look so cute and I still can't believe how big they have gotten. Cute little blondies!

Looks like a lot of fun! I can't believe little Haliegh... way to go! And Jentry diving... I can't even dive! We have had a blast with the the Grimstead girls at Cherry Hill this year! Let's really live it up these next couple of weeks!
