Layla's Swim Lessons
Layla graduated from her first swim lessons. She did really well. Her first lesson she didn't cry until the last 5 minutes. The next lesson, however, she knew what she was in for and started crying when we started heading toward the pool. By the last lesson she was back to hardly crying. She learned to roll over and float on her back, kick her legs, and get over to the side of the pool, reach up and grab on. It really is amazing how fast kids can learn. I was hoping that swim lessons would make her a little more cautious around the pool but she still likes to jump in. I think we will be reinforcing her lessons all summer in the pool.
