Kindergarten Swimming

Sometimes working at home has its benefits. Being able to volunteer at my daughter Eliza’s school is definitely one of them. I signed up to help with a two week stint where the class took swimming lessons. They were having a hard time getting dads to volunteer so I went. Eliza seems to be doing well in the water. Even in just the last year I can see improvement. It wasn’t much more than a year ago that she couldn’t keep her feet down while wearing a life jacket and would always end on her back. Now she was doing a back float (with instructor help)...

She is in a Spanish-English bi-lingual program, and is really excited to learn Spanish. I hope she is successful so we can talk behind mommy’s back about private “us” stuff. Time will tell, but for now she is loving Kindergarten with her teacher SeƱora H.
