So last night we are coming home from a late night swim meet & Kobi tells me that she only wants to do the swim team for 1 more year, because when you are 9 you have to learn how to do flip turns underwater and she doesn't want to do those. So I asked her about our little quote and she recited it perfectly... Then we made up a new quote : " How does one become a great swimmer, You have to want to swim so fast that you are willing to give up doing turns like one of the little kids". She is so clever. Its the pay off for being brave baby! You can do it.

Blackboard quote of the week...
This is the quote we have been talking about this week. I really like this new little habit of ours. I am trying to keep the sayings from going over a first graders head. The discussions that come about are totally adorable. Nothing like talking to 5 & 7 year olds about being brave to make me take a long hard look at my scaredy-cat self. I obviously need to work on my penmanship.
