It was very important to me that Stinky take swim lessons this summer. My DH never learned how to swim and when I met him he was very uncomfortable in the water. I love being in the water and have my whole life. I wanted Stinky to feel confident in the water and enjoy it as well. She learned a lot. She loves jumping off the side, putting her face in the water and swimming to the edge and she climbing out of the pool as well. The only part she really did not like is floating. We are still working on this technique.
Her enjoyment and confidence really shined through when we went on vacation soon after finishing swim lessons. She loved going under water, kicking and swimming toward daddy and myself. She is a little scary now because she will just go under water with little notification and just start going. We have to be very vigilant in watching her. But her excitement when she hits the water is the greatest joy to me.
