little swimmer

I took these pictures last week at swimming class, the second day I believe. Today was the 6th day and we have 2 more to go. It's amazing the difference. The night before, she was trying to talk her way out of swimming class and after the first class, she was saying how much she loved it. She is a social butterfly. Chatting it up with the other girls in class, the teachers, making everyone laugh and smile...I couldn't hear what she was saying, but her mouth was moving for 98% of the class:) Here she is waving to Kieran and I:I don't necessarily think she has learned just SO much, but she has gained an incredible amount of confidence in the water, which is really important! I do not want her to be afraid of the water, that just seems unsafe to me. Can't wait to get in the pool at the new house and work on some of the stuff she has learned.I used a sharpen for web action on these and they seem overly sharpened, hmmm...
Love that she is smiling during all of this!!! Such a change in attitude:) P.S. The teacher above is super awesome and nice...the one below is kinda mean? I don't think she has much experience with little kids...maybe? Waiting for her turn... Now when she is waiting, she is dipping her head under water, blowing bubbles, practicing kicking, and just totally getting into the spirit of swimming class:)

My kids loved swim class too, but I agree...don't think they learned many life-saving procedures!

I wish I could swim more, it has been so incredibly hot lately! I'm glad A likes her classes! I can't wait to come for the 4th!
