In June we enrolled Xandra in her first swimming lessons. They were the kind of lessons where I got to get in the water with her and her instructor.
She loved the lessons and she loved her teacher, Miss Melanie.
She also loved the shower.
I was thoroughly impressed with her willingness to try new skills. By the end of the class she was floating on her back for 25 seconds, happily submerging her whole self in the water, picking up rocks from the bottom of the pool, jumping in the pool, and floating on her tummy, face in water.
While we were at lessons, Ms. Carol held down the fort at home.
