sanaa and rahmah are taking swim classes,
but i thought a free swim would be a great time for them to
practice their skills and play around.
often during swim class
— which they also take at the rollingcrest chillum splash pool —
they spend a good deal of their time
at the edge of their pool listening to instruction
or letting a classmate take a turn under the instructor’s eye.
aya hasn’t had a swim class yet.
after she had started her first class she broke her arm
and subsequently had to take a hiatus.
this was her chance to get in the pool like her big sisters.
with summer here, we plan to take a break from formal swim classes,
get a family swim pass
and hit up our neighborhood outdoor pool,
lane manor splash park
— which just a block away —
at least once a week.
