Summer is here and here is what we’ve got going on. Swim lessons for the girls have started and it is such a mix of emotions. The girls have been doing so good. It started off with them being so excited to get into the pool. They soon learned that this time included dunking their heads under water and it was no longer play time.
As a mom it is such a mix of emotions, you’re excited and happy that your child is learning a survival skill, but also they’re screaming and calling your name. I did a lot of bribing this first week. Every day after the lessons I offered a reward to them to doing so well.
Lately after our swim lessons the girls have wanted to stay and watch other kids learn to swim. This has really helped them understand the instructors requests and see the results of their lessons.
This past week we did a FAGE Total Split Cups reward moment. I love that their rewarding moment can be a sweet treat with no artificial sweeteners. It’s rich and creamy with delicious fruit toppings. The girls love these, especially the blueberry flavor, I am a strawberry fan. The split cups are perfect for on the go, protein-rich breakfast for them.
We have so many other fun adventures planned for this summer. I am excited to say that after 1 full week of lessons the girls are doing amazing. This makes me confident enough to plan more poolside and beach trips this summer. What activities do you have planned this summer?
