Swim Lessons

Our spring and summer have been much, MUCH cooler than usual.  So we waited to put Emma and Elizabeth in swim lessons until July.  So the girls were so ready and so excited when swim lessons finally started.
(Here's a close-up of Elizabeth's new glasses.  Another pair bit the dust, so the back-up pair is now the main pair.  And we went back to Costco to get yet another back-up pair.)
Elizabeth swimming with her face in the water.
Emma learned how to dive this year.  The first few times, Emma got into diving position on the side of the pool and then belly flopped in.  By the end of the 2 week session, she figured out the "head first" thing.  Emma was also jumping off the diving board without help from a noodle.  This is really something for the girl who used to have a hard time bobbing her head under water.  I am so proud of her!

Wow! Emma has come a long way since 3 y/o swimming class! I saw the picture of her and Spencer when I was unpacking and it made me smile. Glad she is a swimmer!!!
