Oh my goodness–how has it already been another four weeks of lessons at Goldfish?!  I am telling you, time is flying!!  Everytime I post an update, I look back at all of the old updates and I am just in awe of how much our little one has changed and grown over these last few months.
First lesson

That first lesson was absolutely terrifying.  I really thought I was going to die of embarrassment.  And now I see other littles at their first lesson and I salute to that mama in solidarity.  Most kids are just fine at their first lesson–I think it depends on a lot of factors; time of day, temperament of your kiddo, your uncomfortableness at being in a swimsuit in December, etc…
But truly, from screaming and only consoled by the demonstration baby to waving her little ribbon at me and saying “MAMA CHEEEEEEEESE!!!” because she wanted me to take her picture is probably one of my favorite milestones for her.  She was so proud and my heart just shattered into a million pieces.

Over the last two years, my favorite thing to do is get out and explore and do things with my kiddos.  I love seeing them experience new things, meeting people, getting out there and seeing what this world has in store for them.  This year for the holidays, I am hoping to snag up a few deals to get out and do this year.

This year, Goldfish is offering the gift of experience for a serious deal.  For only $205, you get everything listed below:

$193 Family Credit at Goldfish Swim School
2 Family Swim Passes at Goldfish Swim School

The basket is sold for $205 and the value is well over $500, and it can be purchased at Goldfish Swim School in Dublin or Westerville.

What are some things you have given your kiddos that are more experience based vs. material gifts?  Any deals you know of in Columbus?  Like I said, we love to get out of the house!

Hope you are all having a great week!! Stay tuned for a SIX MONTH Claire update happening soon!!
