These last two weeks Avery had swim lessons and I am proud to say that she did great. She has always loved the pool, but I could tell at the start of this summer that her little head was starting to understand that water can be scary and that without her floaties something could happen. The frist few lessons were a little rough, but she plowed right through the two weeks and did awesome. She now swims without floaties of any kind and can jump in and swim to the side as well as across the pool without help. Of coarse, she is still just under 3 so I am always in the pool with her to help her, but we are very proud of our little fish.
