Swimming Lessons

Sophie, lover of all things swimming, just finished up a month of swimming lessons. They were at the local pool and she was in a class that ranged from 2-5 kids every day with 2 teachers, so it was really nice.

Perfecting her kicks


Pushing off


Kicking back to the wall

She learned how to hold her breath under water, retrieve objects on the bottom of the pool, float on her back for several seconds without any help, and can kick and glide across the pool with assistance. It was a great experience for her and gave her a lot of confidence to be in the pool without her floaty.

And now, despite our best sunscreening efforts, the girl is DARK.
