The girls spent most of their July evenings at the neighborhood pool taking swim lessons. New skills have been taught, learned and mastered. Nyna moved up a level; I think she's mentally ready to take the plunge and join the swim team. Anna worked with the teen/adult class and has learned that kicking your feet and moving your arms will get you from one place to the next.
Every morning I packed their swim bag, swim suits, towels, sunblock, snacks and my favorite book. I read, I cheered, I took a ton of pictures and video. We ate snack during down time. The girls listened to music in between each other sessions. The iphone is great for passing the time. I savored my hour and half of me time and finished quite a few books.
Now...it's on to August where we'll fit in more adventuring before school starts.
