Carolyn passed Red Cross Learn to Swim Level 1 today! I am so impressed with the amount of hard work she put in to her class these past two weeks – her water confidence has improved by leaps and bounds, and just today she was jumping off of our backyard pool’s diving board with only a life vest on. (She started out with two noodles. Then one. Then realized that she could probably do it with no noodles. Which she did. Repeatedly.)
And Anna’s new-found confidence in the water, while exhausting, is fun too. She “pedals” all around the pool in her little yellow Puddle Jumper life vest, “as fast as I can pedal!”
As hard as it is to spend the better part of the morning getting ready for and at swimming lessons every single day for four solid weeks, I think it’s well and truly worth it!
