Swim Like a Fish

Let’s go swimming!

I opted to put Gabriella into swim and dance in lieu of competitive soccer this year.

I had less than stellar communication with the coach and it when it came down to registering, it was a nightmare.

Regardless, I kind of felt guilty because I know she wanted to do it but, I said there’s always next year and another team.

So, I’m glad I made this decision.

Because she absolutely loved her first lesson, her dance lesson is this week too and she’s looking forward to it.

How do you keep the kids moving during the winter?

I’m linking up for Wordless/Wordful Wednesday over at Sober Julie, Shasher’s Life, Mom Vs. The Boys and Tara’s View. Pay them a little visit!

Til then, cheers m’deres!
