We may have just finished swim team, but now we have moved on to swim lessons. When Ella's favorite swimmer (and person) Rachael said she was going to be offering 2-week swim lessons from her house, I immediately signed up! Addie is working on actually swimming (which this week has translated to feeling brave enough to put her face in the water) and Ella is working on the technique of her strokes and learning to dive. Ella especially loves the lessons because it means she gets to see Rachael EVERY day. Hopefully she survives the long holiday weekend without any Rachael time :-).
I took some pics on the first day and things have changed a little since then. Ella is now doing her practice with her buddy Johnny before Addie and her little friends do their swim lesson. It has worked out perfectly and I wish they could keep it up all summer long!
(it is especially nice since Mike is home and I don't have to worry about keeping track of Preston by the pool :-)
ready to get started
(we went and got Addie her own goggles after the first practice...purple ones of course)

this little frog was quite a distraction

and then it was miss Ella's turn
