Life with identical twins

Progress!

on August 1, 2014

The girls go swimming 2-3 times each week. Every kid has to wear a colored wrist band to show which of the swim tests they’ve passed, which determines where they can go in the pool. The first swim test was front and back float for 10 seconds. The girls can totally do this, but it took Caden two tries because she wasn’t used to going into the float on her own. This nabbed them a yellow wrist band. With this they could go in the shallow water only, not the deep end.

They have been doing so well with swimming lessons that I’ve been gently telling them they should do the next swim test. For this one they have to, in their words, swim with their heads above water for 30 seconds (tread water). We practiced a few times at the pool but it was too easy for them to put a foot down in the shallow water. On Tuesday Delaney said she wanted to test, and Caden did too. When I picked them up they told me they passed! I’m so proud of them! They’ve worked so hard on their swimming this year, it’s cool that they have these tangible times where they can really see their progress.
