Yesterday...well, was extremely hot! We got up and headed to the pool for some "swimming lessons" around 9am. I have been trying to teach my kids how to swim since there aren't any swim lessons locally. I found some great helpful videos on YouTube to give me some ideas and language. Both my kids love the water but, my son hates to get his face wet....something we have been dealing with for a while now. He would not go to swim lessons when we lived in NC and we only went to the pool on occasion. Now that we live in the State Park that has a lodge with a pool for us to use anytime! We made some amazing progress! He was swimming half the length of the pool by the time we left. Head above water I might add!
After pool time we ate some lunch and realized that the air conditioner felt too good to leave. So, I made some homemade play-dough using a recipe from the Montessori Mom website. Then I made a cup of espresso and had a short day dream. Nice.
