All three children started swimming lessons this morning. Kathrynne had a blast (she’s been anticipating swimming lessons for weeks now!). Silas and Kaitlynn are still warming up to the idea.
But their instructors promised me that it’s perfectly normal for the first day for young children and that they’ll come around and be loving it soon, so I’m hoping that’s true. We’ll see how the next two weeks go. 🙂
After swimming lessons, we went to the park to play and have a picnic lunch.
Kathrynne had fun trying to climb a tree.
And Silas had fun watching her climb!
Kaitlynn enjoyed riding her bike around on the many sidewalks at the park.
While the children ate lunch, I read a few more chapters of Snow Treasure.
Later in the afternoon, Kaitlynn and Silas made chocolate chip muffins using a mix and child-sized pans that a kind friend gave to her for her birthday.
I think they might have made more messes than muffins and they adapted the recipe somewhat (hmm, I wouldn’t know where they would get that idea from?!?), but the final result turned out beautifully and it was a fun addition to dinner tonight.
