Swim Lessons

The boys started swim lessons this week. Last year I found this girl who teaches in Kaysville and she is wonderful! She is young, she knows how to get the kids to listen and she teaches them the entire time rather than letting them play around in the water. She is great! So we went with her again this year and first I have to tell you about the surroundings and convenience of these swim lessons. The property has a huge house in the front, a pool behind it with a preschool- and tons of land with a playground. There are horses and bunnies and kittens running around and it is perfect when I have other kids to take care of while the boys swim. Their lessons were 1 hour long so a few of the days I ran home to finish getting ready or fill up the car with gas, etc. But usually we still spend most of the time on the grounds running...or Keaton running and me chasing....
So here he is playing around.
This is a view of the house.

The preschool with the horse stables to the left...
The playground...
Behind these trees and the white fence is the pool.
I know you don't need to see all these pictures of the boys swim lessons and the house, etc. But I just think it is brilliant the way this property is set up and it really made me a little teensy bit envious of the land. I have 3 boys afterall, so they want to RUN all the time. And this kind of property makes that possible. Anyways...onto the lessons!

A game they play where the teacher drops a toy on the steps and the kids have to dunk and pick up the toy.
All in all, it was a great week! Both boys can swim so much better!
