swimming with sharks

So, when we first met the kids they couldnt really swim very well. Adam couldnt swim at all, and Sasha and Nick could barely dog paddle. Now, they have thier own pool and are sprouting gills and fins.

Adam now jumps off the shallow end a million times a day and swims quite well under water. Today he jumped into the deep end with his little shark swim trunks, where my husband and I were waiting. It was all his idea. He went down and then swam up to the surface and paddled his way right to us!! We were so excited, so we said: "do you want to do that again?" He said, "No, I only do it once a day".

Sasha is swimming in the deep end too. Last week she was terrified of the idea, now, no problem.

Nick is now almost DIVING, and today my husband did a back flip off the diving board, so now Nick is learning and almost successful. He can also tread water. Im so excited...they are swimming!!!

That is the best accomplishment! V finished her second run of swimming lessons up on Thursday. She still has a hard time with diving turns into a belly flop. :)

Oh S still belly flops, but it is still a big improvement over freaking out whenever NEAR the deep end.
