Sunfish

As you know our kids have been taking swimming lesson for the past year. They have been to two sets of classes and moved from a Sea Otter to a Salamander and now they have completed their third set of classes and they have both graduated as Sunfish.

We always knew Faith was a fish and loved the water but never got that from Shawn because every time we go swimming or go to the splash pad he is content to sit just outside the water. However at swimming lesson he really rises to the occasion and when he isn’t being silly, he really swims. He can do his rocket ship, his front floats and his back floats and he is very good at diving for rings at the bottom of the pool (in the shallow end of course).

As I just said Faith is a natural and loves swimming, all kinds of swimming. She also enjoys jumping into the pool and loves diving for rings too. However she doesn’t like waiting. That’s the time she is always getting herself into trouble. She is constantly being told to “sit on her bum” by the swimming instructor. She just needs to be always swimming!

The last few lesson we have had Faith has said to her instructor that she wants to do everything by herself. Did I mention she is very independent, if not, she is.

All in all the kids had a very good season of swimming and they are looking forward to being Sunfish for this next season. Our goal as parents is to have the kids both be able to swim without supervision. And we both agree Faith will probably take it to the next level and become some kind of lifeguard!
