Swim Lessons

Swim lessons started out great this year. Kelsi remembered Ms. Diane from last year and this year she was able to take the class with 4 of her friends! The first week of swim lessons she was a big show off.

She wanted to be the first to do everything. She wanted every ones attention and she was very cute.

She is so big this year. She was able to "tigger hop" all over the pool all by herself since her shoulders were out of the water. Last year she had to stand on her tippy toes (as usual) and put her head back just to keep the water under her chin.

Then disaster struck. First, she decided she wanted to go on the other side of the rope (the deep end) even though her teacher told her not to. She went under slightly and got scared. THEN she was put into the hot tub after class and that was the last straw. I didn't go to class that day, and if I was she wouldn't have gone in the hot tub...she has a fear of the jets...but it was too late. The second week, she refused to get into the water. She sat on the steps and participated the best she could from dry land. When the rest of the kids would hop close to the rope, she would yell "WATCH OUT!!" and she was SO afraid of the pools' jets.

We will try again next year. ;)
