We’ve now been to 4 swimming classes at the Y. No, I don’t have any pictures. I was too busy playing with my little fishy!
Miss R is so confident in the pool, that they moved her mid-session up to the next swim group. It’s a bit later in the evening, but she does so much more swimming. Last night, she swam all the way across the pool with Mommy and Daddy. That’s to the deep end, folks. Way to go Miss R! (Oh yeah, she had on one of those little swim bubbles, so she had a little bit of help) When she got to the deep end, she crawled right out, and attempted to jump off the diving blocks. We discouraged that, and instead, she jumped in while holding Mommy’s hands. Then, swam all the way back to the shallow end.
That was a lot of swimming.
By the end of the class, Daddy even had her jumping in all by herself. She goes right under and comes up sputtering, but there are no tears and absolutely no fear. She just gets right back out and does it again.
Hooray Miss R. I’m so excited for this summer. She’ll be so much more confident at the beach and when we visit our friends with pools.
