Was able to work with the same little girl from last week and we were able to stretch out her legs and get her to kick them sooner in the lesson than last time which was exciting. We were also able to stretch out her arms a little more this time compared to last week, but she still didn't get alot of voluntary movement out of them such as slapping the water to start making arm circles. Unfortunately this was the last week so I won't be able to work with her again but I did enjoy working with her the past two weeks. We also gave the report cards to Robyn and the kids which was really fun and Robyn was very appreciative of the hard work we did on the report cards and said that she will use them often.

Today was the last swim session with Kids in Action. It was great to see how much the kids have improved over the past few weeks and their confidence in the pool grow. At the end of each session we handed out awards and report cards.

We reached out to WWAD, participated in a walk, and organized the structure to set up a WWAFD chapter at GWU. We created social media, reached out to other schools and staff members, and planned a walking route. We created a newsletter blurb and marketing flyer, and we set up a binder to allow future students to build on our structure.
