Caty has been taking swim lessons for the past two weeks. We’ve signed her up for another session, which starts on Monday. Before these lessons, she HATED water in her face, but has gotten better at it since. She will now blow bubbles and isn’t freaked out about going underwater. She won’t go willingly, but if the swim instructor dunks her, she’s somewhat okay with it. I don’t mean dunking, really, just while holding her, both of them going under for a second. I’m hoping that by the end of the next 2 week session, she’s feel better about getting her face wet and maybe even going under.
The first day didn’t go over so well – she screamed the whole 30 minutes – almost wish that I had caught some of that on video.
After that she was fine and really started enjoying herself.
On the last day of swim class they spent a little time going over the stuff they had learned. Then the kids got a special treat and were able to play on the play structure.
