I am very, very excited this morning. Why, you ask? I have just registered Ava and myself for swim lessons this summer!!
We're going to be taking them at the beautiful West Enfield Park, from June 21st-July 1st! So exciting! S has been taking swim lessons the past two weeks and while we watch her, I've been putting Ava in the baby pool to splash and feel the cool water. At first I was worried she would hate being dunked in the cold water, but she LOVES it!
They're even letting us start in the class a week before Ava turns six months old, which is the age requirement, so thank you City of Austin!!! AND, while some of the private lessons and swim shops in Austin charges upwards of $200-300 for two weeks of lessons, City of Austin Parks & Rec only charges $55!!!! What the what?! That's amazing!
On a side note, can we all please have a good chuckle that the West Austin Neighborhood Group is self-entitled WANG? Ha! That's awesome.
Now for a serious question - is it tacky for me to wear a bikini to the lessons? Clearly not a flashy one, of course, but I do not own a one-piece swimsuit, nor do I plan to unless absolutely necessary. And maybe a little bit, but just a wee bit, I'm proud of the fact that I am a mother and still can wear a bikini. That could be contributing just slightly. So is it tacky? Feel free to be brutally honest - I am far more concerned with looking like an idiot than I am having to purchase a one-piece swimsuit!
