Oh, hey, remember how I kept saying that there would be more pictures from swimming class last weekend? And then I went and lost my mind, and THEN it snowed, blah blah blah? Yeah, I didn't forget, I just re-prioritized.
We did a much better job at swim class last weekend. G was home sick so it was just me to wrangle Shae, and I thought it was going to be disastrous, but she was great. She is still a highly excitable child ...
... but at least this time she listened to her teacher more, and mostly did what she was told, even if she did make a bit more noise and cause quite a bit more excitement than the other kids did.
For example, most of the other kids try to keep their heads above water as much as possible, only putting their faces in the water when the teacher tells them to. Not my kid -- if she doesn't look like a drowned rat in the first two minutes of class, you can tell she thinks she is doing something wrong.
But whatever she is doing, it looks like it's catching on, because much as I suspected, she is something of a ringleader. All the other kids gather around her and follow her lead, so I expect increasing levels of anarchy as the weeks progress. You know, typical stuff for my kid.
