Swimming Lessons

In May, I signed Abby up for some swimming lessons. We went twice a week for 5 weeks. The class required that a parent be in the water with the pre-schooler. I took her most times, but Billy went once or twice. I had him go the last class so I could take pictures.

Abby really improved on her water skills. Last year, she really didn't like having her face wet. She would blow a few bubbles, but that was it. In this class she learned to go completely under water, float on her back, and do a front glide. But we've been swimming since the lessons and basically what she learned was to jump in the pool and then get back to the edge to get out. I consider that a success!

The teacher would start with them on the steps, getting them used to the water and being wet.

Waiting for her turn to jump in.

Cutie pie - even soaking wet.

Jumping to daddy. The first time, I didn't use a flash and all that showed up was a green blur. I used the flash so you can actually see her.

Floating on her back. She looks so long. My baby is getting big!
