Swimming

We took the kids to the Miramar pool.

When you go into the pool the give you a bracelet that shows that you have not passed the swim test.

Every year you have to requalify for a swim card so you don't have to wear the bracelet.

If you have a bracelet you have to stay where you can touch the bottom of the pool.

They also have a wading pool for the littles.

Taniyah and Makkiah didn't take the swim test and were content in the small pool.

The other kids attempted the swim test.

It consists of swimming out into the middle of the pool, treading water for 1 minute and floating on your back for 1 minute.

Everyone except Destini passed.

She wouldn't float on her back.

She kept grabbing hold of the floating dividers in the pool.

She could have done it but she said she didn't know how to float on her back.

She was bummed that she didn't get her swim card.

She practiced back floating while the other kids jumped off the diving board.

I stayed in the wading pool with the little ones and they are the only ones that I got pictures of!

Guess I will have to make sure that I get some of the others next trip!

Makkiah who is happy to wear his "floaty" anytime he's near water!!
