Swim Lessons

Today, Annika had her first big girl swim lesson. She took swim lessons when she was about 6 months old, but all she really got out of them was exposure to being in the pool and really cold.

I found it really funny that she was much more afraid of the pre-lesson shower (she had never seen a wall of showers before) than she was of participating in the class. She (no shocker) was completely at ease in the pool. She was the first to volunteer for the class activities and had no qualms about sticking her face in the water, trying to float, and kicking her feet. To say our kids love water is an understatement and Annika proved that (once again) today ... as did Conor who was quite miffed that he couldn't get in the pool with Annika, so did his best to stay happy stomping in the puddles in the walkway around the pool.
