Back in the Pool Again

From Daddy: We returned home early on Saturday morning from Thanksgiving in Colorado, so we returned in time for Robert to make terrific progress in swimming! Check out the video above!


(or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W4xw69yMMk to see him dribble)

On Sunday, we had another basketball class. See above where the coach used Red Light/Green Light to teach the kids to listen while they dribbled. Below is the game. Enjoy!

Even if you don’t watch the whole basketball game, skip to the last ten seconds to see the display of sportsmanship at the conclusion.
