What does your homeschooler do for P.E./Extra Curricular Activities?
Emmett loves to swim. We miss having our own pool from the Florida house. But Emmett definitely missed his swim school while we were in Florida. It’s good to be back at swim lessons.
Homeschooling doesn’t mean I teach my kids every subject at home. It means I create or seek out environments and opportunities where they can be their best selves and do their best work, together. The family is a genius design. Each child takes a turn mentoring and being mentored. Each member brings something to the table. They coax courage, bravery, and kindness out of each other. My job is to protect and nourish this space. And man, do I love this gig.
Pictured: one nine-year-old having a private swimming lesson, one four-year-old acting as swim instructor to the six-year-old, and one curly toddler kicking back in my lap. We’re soaking it all in.
These two did so amazing the last two weeks during swim lessons. Madison moved all the way down to the 10ft deep end! The high school instructors were amazing and so kind and patient. Can't wait for next time around :)
Every day of swim lessons Sawyer would be upside down in the carrier playing with the water in the hot tub, or screaming. Monday his no sleep routine finally caught up with him and he passed out like that. He also woke up and started crying the second I pulled him back up straight. 😂😴
Congratulations to Karsten for being called up to participate in the 11-12 boys TAGS(Texas age group championship state meet) relay for Fleet Swimming! He swims in our homeschool program and is the first out of that program to achieve this amazing accomplishment! Very proud of you and Coach Jeff for helping you get there! #fasttrackswimming#homeschool#homeschoolswim#fleetswimming#texasagegroupswimming
