An exciting highlight at the close of April was the completion of our Spring swimming lessons, and advancement to Level III. This was a big deal to GraceNotes, because she did not advance to Level III after the March lessons, and thought that she should have, so she was a bit disappointed. We felt that the instructor had some valid concerns and agreed another month of lessons would help. Sure enough, a few more weeks in the water did the trick.
Our schedule for May is already pretty hectic with NumberOneSon’s Regattas, plays, recitals and testing, so I was glad to let go of the twice-a-week swimming classes at 6 PM. I find it odd that the city of Norfolk only schedules swimming classes during dinner hour, or alternatively at 5 PM when I should be fixing dinner. I wonder if they would be open to scheduling children’s swimming classes earlier in the afternoon? (Nyet.)
