Last Friday was a pivotal moment in our house. Addie took her maiden voyage across a pool, by herself.
She can swim. And we are all so proud of her – including her biggest cheerleader, Em.
At the beginning of the week, when she started lessons, it looked a little grim. Her instructor said, “Wow, she is really stubborn, isn’t she?” as she handed me back a writhing, screaming, temper-tantrum throwing mess, that sort of resembled my daughter.
But the difference between Tuesday and Friday is simply astounding! This weekend we had use of our neighbor’s pool and she practiced and perfected her little seal-like underwater sprint. And mugged for Daddy and his underwater camera…
Why didn’t someone tell me that this swimming thing is just so easy!
