My oldest son (Xavier) just got his Yellow Band for Swimming. If any of you are members of the YMCA, you know what I mean. He had to tread water for 30secs and then swim half a lap on his belly. He will go for his green band in a week or two which means he can swim in the pool without us. He has to tread water for 60 seconds (which he has done already) then swim and entire lap. I am so proud of my little man.
Not bad for a 5 year old (turned 5 on the 15th.) I didn't learn to swim until I was 6 or 7.

Hello!

I just discovered this thread (198 pages late, apparently), but my family will be on this cruise too! We have two cabins--my parents and sister in one and my husband, me, and our 6-year-old twins (boy/girl) in the other. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Happy Monday. It was pretty overcast riding into work today, but now I see the sun trying to peek out.

Have a good day...

have a good day

I hope Wally had a comfortable ride.

It's currently 71F here and overcast too. The wind is breezy and has a bit of a chill in it but I'm still only in a tshirt and long cargos. I'm contemplating wearing socks but it's not that cold yet. It's a good washing day though with the wind

Thanks to everyone for your kind welcomes! I answered roll call, signed up for fish extenders, and requested to join the fb group. Those things didn't work from my computer, but they did work from my husband's. And I think the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) will be interested in the dismeet too!
