Yesterday I blogged about Chickie's fears in the pool. I wasn't sure how her first swimming lesson would go.
Well...it went great!
She was willing to try things I thought would totally freak her out, based on our experiences in the pool with her. She dipped her head just slightly under the water, with her mouth in the water and her nose still out of the water. She jumped from the edge of the pool into the arms of one of her instructors. She didn't seem freaked out!
I think this is one of those instances where she really needs some teachers who aren't her parents. By the end of the lessons next week, she won't be doing all the different strokes, but I think she will be less afraid and will enjoy herself even more in the pool. Yay!
