Swimming Lessons

After watching all of the three year-olds at Maadi House swim like fishes last summer, I signed the girls up for swim lessons. Kathleen has always been resistant to trying new things, and so spent the first 45-minute session crying. The entire lesson. Thankfully she has calmed down and now only spends a few minutes each lesson crying.

Sophia, on the other hand, has to be kept from throwing herself off the steps at any available moment to come squirming through the water over to me.

And so we purchased two sets of child-sized goggles. Sophia for whatever reason decided that the best accessory to goggles was... nothing. I'm not sure how well that will go over in a Muslim country.

Great maniac pictures. Love the green hat. Let see, who else do we know who screamed bloody murder at her first swim lesson???

I want to remind you of the single most important word in the fashion world: accessories. I think your girls have somehow intuitively hit that target in the bullseye.
