Swim Lessons

Rylan loves swimming, but needed more work.  Caden had never spent much time in a pool.  But I thought he needed lessons to get ready for when swimming season comes.  Im proud of how well they are both doing at Bakersfield Swim. Caden isn't afraid and can float. The teacher just has to make sure that she keeps a finger on his head so he "feels" as though she's holding him.  He can swim about 3 feet.

Rylan is perfecting her freestyle and back stroke.  She is learning breast stroke.  She can swim non stop for about 30 min. She's the oldest in her group, but the evaluater says that she is strong and will catch up quickly.  They both love to swim. 

Science Fair

Rylan got first place at the Highland, and Standard District science fair. She was super proud. However, at the county science far she did not place. She was a bit disappointed.  But she kept in good spirits.  My mom took a few hours off work to attend the awards. Caden went too. Her project compared the effects of water, ibuprofen, and multi-vitamin on cut flowers.  She completed the project on her own and it was very age appropriate. Rylan understood her project and the research she did to complete the assignment.  Other competitors were very sophisticated.(parents helped too much)  I'm super proud of how well she did, especially on her own! I did help type, take pictures, and guide her. She did a lot of work. preparing. (Beryl bought her that jacket for her birthday)
