Swim Lessons

I had posted previously that the light bulb recently went off for AC where swimming is concerned. She was swimming all over the place on our last trip to the beach. So I decided to strike while the iron is hot and enroll her in swim lessons this month so she's good to go this summer.

She and LB started had their first lesson this weekend and did awesome. AC has lost her fear and is just so eager to learn. I was mighty proud of LB, too. Our past two trips to the beach she didn't want anyone but me to touch her in the water. So I was a little apprehensive of how she would do with lessons. Luckily, she went right to the instructor and did everything she was asked to do. My hope for her is just that she'll lose her fear and know what to do in the water. I realize she won't be swimming all over the place this summer, but I do want her to learn some technique and feel comfortable in the water. So far, so good!

AC cracks me up in those goggles, but now that she's going underwater she likes to wear them. And if that helps her swim, that's fine with me! The instructor made them both wear a small flotation device during the lesson, but she said AC would be able to take hers off in a couple of lessons. They're having fun!

So cute! I'm glad they are doing well in the water. I'm going to sign Emma up for classes this Saturday morning. Emma wants to just jump in the water all by herself with no water wings so I've got trouble on my hands. :)

How many lessons are the girls doing? Let us know how they do!

So we're all wanting to know where!! I know an AWESOME private teacher, but Abby needs a quick refresher before summer too!

We are doing the YMCA - but we are doing private, not group lessons. We are doing at least four, but will do more if we need to. I highly recommend it! And doing it indoors is a huge plus. The water is always warm and you can do it despite the weather. We did outdoors last year and had a great teacher, but the pool was cold and sometimes the girls didn't want to get in.
