After months(actually years) of procrastinating, I finally did it! I signed my boys up for swimming lessons. I feel so proud of myself. I tried to sign up for the infamous Mr. Bonetti (sp?) last month, but was informed that I should have signed up in February. That completely took the wind out of my sails and I almost gave up. Until the other night at small group when I saw Finn's buddy Zach jump off the side of the pool and actually swim around. I was so impressed. I decided to try again for lessons.
It took me the entire morning yesterday to accomplish this task. I had to drag all 3 boys to the aquatic center to fill out paper work. I could not believe the mental gymnastics required to pick the dates for a 2 week session...let alone the time of day I would take them. No wonder people sign up in February! Get those swim dates on paper and then plan your summer accordingly. Ollie was screaming the entire time and I finally realized he needed a diaper change and ASAP. There was no where to go, so I had to plop down on the middle of the floor and change him there. Classy, I know. By the time I got home I was practically shaking from starvation and the exhaustion of the whole experience. But I was victorious. Due to vacation plans, I could not get them in til July 21st. So in the meanwhile, we'll just stick with our kiddy pool.
