Spring Swimming Lessons

The kids are in swimming lessons again.  The Spring lessons are a great way to get them warmed up for 2 weeks at the beach/lake in Penticton.  
I know it is always a gamble when you sign your kids up for sports what kind of teacher/coach you are going to get.  Most of the time they are pretty good but I need to say that in this round of lessons the kids both got AMAZING teachers.  The young ladies are doing an awesome job and both kids are learning lots and you can actually see a difference each week in their progress.
Here are a few pictures from a few weeks ago of the kids at the pool.

 Zach in the deep pool
 Always big smiles from Zachy
 A big smile from Abs.  I took this picture from across the pool testing the zoom on the new camera.  not too bad considering the bad lighting in the pool
 Zach practising his back float
 Getting ready for a rocket-ship glide
 Up to no good
 Getting some help from the barbel
 Go Zach Go
 Faster!
 Hey there Abs.  What are you up to?
 Back float
 Bobbing around waiting for her turn
 My beautiful girl
 Practising front crawl with the barbel
 More big smiles
 Back crawl time
 All on her own.  Great job Abby
 Man I love that smile
 Talking to the boys (Abby is the only girl in her class)
 What next coach?
 Showing the teacher how many rings her collected
 one, two, three...
 Great job Zach
 Time to put on your scuba mask
 Zach and his boat
 Blowing bubbles
 He loves dunking his head. No fear!
Love to know what is going through his head in this picture!

Great job kids!  Mum and Dad are very proud of you!
