Emma had her last swimming lesson yesterday and finally we had some success!

In a front float (with me holding her up) she kicked her legs and stroked with her arms! That is a big improvement from screaming and clinging to my arm for dear life! Then she put her whole face in the water...and again...and again!

The final success was going down the big water slide with her teacher at the bottom to catch her. She had a flotation belt on and after watching the other smaller kids make it okay, she was ready to go! Well, she must have leaned back and made no attempt to stop herself. She flew out of the end of the slide right past her teacher! The teacher had to swim about 5 feet to get to her. Needless to say, she went under! I was very proud of her but she definitely didn't want to try that again!

Next up, Sam! I am tempted to register for an evening class so Darcy can have a shot at it.


  1. Good to hear that she made it through her first round of swimming! Will just make her more confident as the summer starts to gear up!:)

  2. GREAT JOB EMMA!!! So glad to hear you had some success!!!
