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.
K getting recognized for Best in Reading.
It was the Awards Assemblies again this afternoon. It’s the second 9 weeks in school and elementary students who did a great job within this period got recognized today. K and cousin A were among the students who showed and performed their best in school this period. K received a recognition for Best in Reading. A got recognized for Best in Writing. Nine weeks ago K and cousin A both received one of the 7 Habits award – Think Win Win and Sharpen The Saw.
Way to go little ones! We are so proud of you.
Checking for books.
If I remember it right, this is the second time K and I visited our local library since the school started in August. We couldn’t attend the Story Time for All Ages on Tuesday evenings because our bedtime is around 7:00 P.M. and the story time is scheduled at 6:30 P.M. The story time on Wednesdays and Fridays are for toddlers and are scheduled during school hours. So obviously we’re not able to go as well.
This afternoon we got the chance to go to the library because K wanted to borrow DVDs. We have a collection of kids’ movies on DVDs at home but it gets boring, you know. She enjoys being at the library. She reads a few books. Sometimes I read to her. What fascinated her most was searching for books and DVDs at the computer kiosk. When K started to try using the computer kiosk, she used a step stool to reach the keyboard. Now, she doesn’t have to use one anymore. She can reach the computer keyboard and she’s very happy about that. This way K will know if her favorite books like Pete the Cat and Hippoposites and DVDs like Kubo and My Neighbor Totoro are IN or OUT. The library is one of the places to take your children for learning and reading. There are activities and special events for kids’ according to age and interest that local libraries organize all the time.
I need to allot more library time on the weekends. As for the story time, we will catch up on that in the summer. We always participate in the Summer Reading Club.
