Family and Blog Update

For the past two weeks, at exactly 8:55am, I’ve found myself standing on the sidelines of our local pool slumped up against the wall hoping that The Kids will think that my snoring is acknowledgement of their swimming feats. It was almost the death of me.

Each and every day, I asked myself “HOW DO THEY DO IT?” They being YOU. How do you get your kids up for school, soccer, dance, one of the 4,325 things that they day every summer, week or even day? HOW?

The good news is that The Kids are way better swimmers today than they were two weeks ago. They did everything that was required in order to receive their “Lifesaving Society — Preschool A” badge! They had to enter and exit shallow water, jump into chest-deep water assisted (Artemis just jumped in without the teacher even knowing!), Face in water, blow bubbles in water, float on front wearing PFD, float on back wearing PFD, safe movement in shallow water with (or in The Kids case), without assistance and glide on back wearing PFD (Artemis tried it without her lifejacket and promptly suck ;)) Artemis even spent 15 minutes without her lifejacket on (and no one holder her) as she bounced around the pool periodically touching the ground. Overall a very worthwhile activity and one that we will be doing next year as well. Probably for even longer. Did I just write that!?

The Kids-Swimming Lessons-July 2015

Besides that, there hasn’t been much room for anything else but we’ve managed fitting in weekly volunteering, playdates, visits with Aunt Sandie and Uncle Bill and packing for our upcoming annual four week trip that will see us at the Family Far at the top of Blue Mountain, a week in Toronto and two nights in Algonquin Park at The Taylor Statten Camps. We usually go for five days but The Kids are starting French school in September and it starts a week early so we have to shorten our vacation (add that to the list as well!). More on that another time.

Even with all that on our plate, I found time to write a guest post for the “1,000 Families Project” about what it’s like living somewhere between Canada and Mexico.

    Just had to write and let you know that I love that photo of the kids and I am proud of you for taking them to swimming lessons. AND next year too, though perhaps you can find a later class?

      Dear Elizabeth,

      You are such a sweetheart for saying that even though I was already thinking it 😉

      I’ve temporarily lost my mind and am planning to book them for 1 week of private lessons AND 2 weeks of group lessons next year. When the time comes, remind me how much I loved getting up at 7am to get them there on time this year…

      Besos Sarah.
