we've been swimmin'. all summer. almost every day. and we intend to do it all fall in mexico. so for the second year in a row, runa and mars took swim lessons with ms. cathy. these lessons are no joke. they are intense. there is crying and screaming and running away and sometimes throwing up. the lessons are WHOA. i think they're so worth it.
koruna just turned 4 and marvel is almost 2. in eight lessons, ms. cathy had them both swimming from the deep to the shallow end of her pool, swimming through hoops, and jumping off of her waterfall.
all they want to do is swim now. if we're not swimming, we are talking about swimming, drawing mermaids, or practicing "dolphin dives" off the arms of the couch onto the cushions. ian drew the sketches below at runa's request the other morning.
we're headed to galveston in a couple of days. ya know, to get our swim on.
