Open swim at YMCA
Speaking of swimming, we registered darling daughter in a swimming class at YMCA. It was a 30-minute swimming lesson for eight days with open swim for parent and student after each lesson. Because K cannot swim five feet distance in a 5-foot deep water, she is a beginner which makes her join Level 1-Water Acclimation.
My darling K is enjoying her swimming classes so far. Her swimming instructor seemed to be competent. Swimming instructors at YMCA handles at least two to maximum of four students per class. K wants to continue and in two weeks, she will be in Level 2-Water Movement. Hopefully she will become more confident in the water so she will learn a lot in the next level. I need to buy her swimming cap and goggles next weekend.
What do you and your kid(s) do after school? Does your child have after school activities like swimming, martial arts, music lessons, dance and art classes, gymnastics, and workshops that he or she will continue attending while on summer break?
I know some of my mommy friends send their children to one or two of the activities I mentioned above during the week after school. My darling daughter was in a ballet class two years ago. She doesn’t want to do that again because she said it’s boring. 🙂 We also tried to put her in tumble and ballet combo but still she got bored. Then we tried gymnastics with ASI Gymnastics Trial invite last year before Kindergarten. She enjoyed it-lots of activity in each session. She went once a week that time and looked forward to the next class. I noticed then that she really enjoyed gymnastics. But I have three things in mind that I want her to do this summer-swimming, piano, and gymnastics. But with our schedule, I think I will drop one. It is hard to decide since all of them are very essential.
My husband and I should talk about this with proper consideration because availing these classes are not cheap.

If you are a mom like me who’s always on the lookout for engaging activities for children to enjoy all year round, let’s high five! You see, keeping our kids busy on the activities they love to do is beneficial to their development because, not only they gain self-confidence but also, they learn how to socialize.
When my darling K turned 3, I started looking for an activity that might interest her. I enrolled her to ballet classes. Searching for dance schools wasn’t easy for me. I asked for recommendations from my mom friends. There was one close to our town but the registration fee was so expensive. I bumped into Groupon.com and looked around their website and found some good Good For Kids health and fitness, and classes. The locations were ideal and they offered discounts on classes with Groupon coupons. Since my darling daughter was interested in gymnastics, I enrolled her in a gymnastics school and availed the discounted price listed on Groupon. Not only K enjoyed the gymnastics classes. She’s also learning about balance, composure, posture, and teamwork.
I was a happy mom since I found Groupon.com. I like their site because of so many great deals – not only on kids activities but also on dining and shopping. Every now and then, I check for Nordstrom coupons on shoes and apparels on their site, too. You can also follow them on social for updates at:
Now that the Holidays are fast approaching, start checking out Groupon.com now. 🙂
New playground equipment.
We cannot wait for this new playground equipment to be installed completely at the Olde City Park in Wylie. It is about time to have the old ones replaced since they were old and damaged already. They were putting more slides, I can see. Spring is just around the corner and hopefully the play park will reopen very soon.
I am looking forward to this year’s social events in the town. One of my favorite event is the City Night Out. There are so many vendors and fun stuff for the kids. Also, the fireworks display is awesome.
My darling daughter and I went to her tumbling, gymnastics, and cheer class this afternoon. I was glad that I didn’t forget the schedule today because we missed the first day of classes last Thursday. K was very excited to try this new skills and physical development for toddlers. As much she loves jumping, K loves tumbling as well. I noticed that she got bored in ballet class when she was 3 so I decided to let her try something else that I know she enjoys.
We arrived at the recreation center 10 minutes early but the in-charge let K inside the classroom. The room is big and wide. The props are ready and waiting for the kids to show up. There were six children in the list but only three of them came including K. The other one, though she was inside the room, didn’t join the activity.
The girls and their pom poms.
It’s a 30-minute class which is good, I think, because toddlers get tired and bored easily.
The Wylie Recreation Center offers fitness and developmental classes for toddlers and young kids age 2-5. Depending on the type of class, the monthly rates ranges from $25 to $125. For members and Wylie residents, the rates are lower. So if there are health and fitness programs for kids in your area, you can register may register your children. I am sure they will have a great time.
