Finally at age nine, I have Luke signed up for swimming lessons. We had to take the bus there. I went online to have the bus website plan our route but it wanted us to walk a mile away and across a six lane road to take a bus which did drop us off in front of the building we were going to. However, we took the bus that picks us up a half mile from our house, no busy streets and it dropped us off two blocks away from our destination. All we had to do is walk around the corner. Luke made the point if we had to walk a mile to the bus stop, he would be too tired to swim! Pete got done with work the same time his lesson ended so he picked us up. He works only a mile away from where the lessons are so it worked out well.
Bree was a big help because the building is a maze to get to the obervation deck to watch the swimmers. She sounded like a drill sergeant...left, right, left!
Luke was hesitant but did very well learning how to float on his back, do the crawl and tread water, three things I tried to get him to do but he refused. He clung on to the teacher but eventually loosened up. He goes every day this week, has next week off and then every day the following week. I may sign him up for another two weeks since he has nothing else planned this summer.
I'm rather sleepy because Pete did not come to bed until three a.m.! I woke up and did not sleep well after than because I was afraid he would oversleep.
Time to go pay bills....
