The girls have been taking swimming lessons at the new aquatic center near our house. Bekah was in a preschool swim class and Anna and I enjoyed our first "Mommy (Parent) and Me Class" together. I did" mommy and me" with Bekah for two years, so it is fun to continue with Anna.
This past Thursday, actually, marked the last day of swim lessons for the summer but we are contemplating doing swimming during the fall, as our local aquatic center now offers lessons year round.
Being in the pool with Anna has prevented me from my normal habit of taking pictures of the girls every move, so on the last day of lessons Daddy came in as a fill- in for me and I got to snap some shots. Although he may have felt somewhat like a "fish out of water", I think he did a great job!
Rebekah, especially, LOVES the water and while I think her courage still outweighs her actual skill, I do think she did a great job in her lessons.
Anna loves the water too..... but like everything in Anna's existence...... she loves the water on HER terms. If she doesn't want to do it, she is NOT going to do it! (FYI: she doesn't like floating on her back. )
Rebekah shows NO fear when launching into the water! :)
Anna still likes to jump into Daddy or Mommy's arms; but just like big sis, she shows no hesitation when getting in the water.
Fun summer memories.......
