Swimming Lessons

Ella is taking swimming lessons this summer and is doing so well! It is a mommy and me class, just like last summer, and I'm amazed at how much more confident and capable she is compared to last summer! I have a feeling that she will be a little fish in the water by next summer.

We started out a little nervous :)
but very excited none the less!
Mommy loves it because it makes for GREAT naps! We are learning how to kick, different ways to use your arms in the pool, how to blow out in the water and not suck water it, reaching, crawling out of the pool, and floating on our back. She's a little dare devil and isn't afraid of any of it. That is great for learning and is helping her be willing to try things...but not so great that she's just a beginner and can't swim and is not afraid of the water! I feel so good that we are doing this and she is loving it, especially after her accidental slip into the pool last week.
Nap time!
