Kids's Swimming Lessons

Since the beginning of the month, the kids have been taking swimming lessons down in Volos--at the pool, in fact, built for the Olympics in 2004 (some of the competitions were held in Volos).

We can go every weekday, but we usually go about 3 times per week for a 40-minute lesson. The pool is quite shallow, so that the kids can all stand.

Above, you can see the teacher helping the kids learn how to swim on their backs using a paddle board.

Here's the whole class practicing kicking with their feet.

Here's the teacher with Paul.

At the end of the lesson, they play various games. Our kids' favorite is jumping through the noodle. Here you can see Benny leaping through to make a big splash.
