    1. I try to update things as I find the time, here and there. It’s an ongoing process, and very time consuming. I get a lot of help from people emailing me their biz info updates or from people letting me know when they see things that need updating. I do appreciate that you use my site and value the info on it, though! And will do what I can to try to update more! Please remember that I am a full time homeschooling mom, so my kids come first. And my time is extremely limited. I do what I can, when I can. 🙂

    1. I would suggest Jan Thomas Swim school. I loved it for my three year old. We will be doing it again. Its pricey though. It that is a problem airways is pretty reasonable.

    1. I know its late but I put my daughter into the Jan Thomas Swim school for the first time this past summer and it was totally worth it. She is 3 and is so confident. Too confident but she loves the water and has no fear. I am so excited to do another summer. So there you go. I will be enrolling her into the indoor soccer soon but I can’t review for that yet. Good luck!

It’s not too late to sign up. More info at http://www.bullardbasketball.com
