Swim Week


DAY ONE OF SUMMER BREAK IS GOING DOWN NOW!  Today, my kids have nothing so we’re gonna do something fun to kickoff the break.

Last week was not only full of all the end of the year things and fifth grade graduation festivities but I was the brilliant mom who scheduled swim lessons for Britt everyday at 2:30.  Clearly, I didn’t look too closely at my calendar before agreeing to last week.  

My kids have all gone to the same swim instructor, Mrs. Sally, since Ebby Lee was three.  She’s taught all three big Slaughter kids to swim and Britt is well on her way.  This will be her summer!  As lessons approached I took a little walk down memory lane and found these…

In 2018, baby Britty started swim lessons.

And finished with a medal!


And she must have gone from little girl to a young lady in 2020.

Since we swim a lot all summer long, I usually buy several swim suits at the beginning of the season and then they wear them out almost by the time school starts.  Just recently I shared some swim suit ideas for beginner swimmers…bright colors that don’t blend into the water.  {And many of those suits are on sale right now!}  I have a few of those suits pictured so you can see how cute they are in real life.


This two-piece is bringing all the fun with those stripes and cute straps.

Love the little flower detail on this suit!

The colors, the pattern, and the ruffles did it for me on this suit.

Give this girl ALL THE COLORS!

And this was the other suit she wore during the week…super cute color-blocking!

Do you guys have an event that really kicks off the summer for you?  I’d say Mrs. Sally’s Swim Lessons is always something that really gets us into the spirit of summer.  Needless to say, we’re happy to see you SUMMER!

See you back here tomorrow for some last day of school pictures.

    I would love if you could pass on Ms. Sally's information.
    We live in McKinney and would love to do swim lessons with someone who people loved.
