When I was putting on my bathing suit to get ready today he asked me to please let him go and promised me he wouldn't cry anymore when we were there. I allowed him to go and he didn't cry and we all had a great time. I know that not everyone agrees with how I deal with his behaviors because not everyone sees these behaviors, but I do what I have to because otherwise he would be out of control. Like my mom says, better to deal with it when they are five years old versus 15 years old. I imagine we will have no more issues with tantrums at SunSplash;)
On really big, big news......Regan learned to swim by herself today!!!! She swims about 2 feet, but she does it all by herself!!! She told me that she was getting big and going into kindergarten and she felt she could learn to swim. So she did!!!! She is my Swim Bop!!!
Shepherd realized that she was getting such attention for learning to swim and so he got brave and tried to swim and then tried to open his eyes underwater. Peer pressure can be a good thing;) I hope the lesson learned is that it is rewarding to earn positive praise.
We also saw the Easter Bunny! Our church had their annual Lenten Party with an Easter Egg hunt, games and crafts. Shepherd really got it this year and loved every minute. Regan loved doing the crafts. Konnor almost thought he was too old for an Easter Egg hunt except he really wanted candy;) We then went down to Bass Pro Shops to see the Bunny. It was so cute, they had an ongoing Easter Egg hunt going on through the store. The kids loved it!! It was a great weekend!
With my news, I have completed Week 5 of the Couch to 5K. I just jogged twenty minutes straight! I love this program. Never in a million years would I have thought that I could do any physical activity for 20 minutes. I really, really struggled in the beginning and although I am not fast by any stretch of the imagination it feels good to get out there and exercise.
