Swimming Lessons!

Emma has been taking swimming lessons for the last two weeks. It has been the best of times and the worst of times. Day One was very hard as Macey could not understand why she was not taking lessons, too. Everything Emma did Macey would say "I could do that!" and then beg me to go get her swimming suit. But, we got her a Mermaid doll she has wanted for quite awhile and she made friends at the pool, so things are better. This is Day Two. We could not find Emma's goggles, and she was devastated. She thought that she would not be able to see underwater because her eyes were "broken" without them. But, her teacher quickly assured her that her eyes would be fine, and Emma recovered!
This is Day Three. We found the goggles! They go on so tight I always ask her if she can blink. But, I guess that they have to be tight or they just wouldn't work.
Emma has learned how to swim underwater, do big arms, free style kicks, rainbow arms and frog legs (breast stroke). She's had a great time!

maybe you could sign her up for swim team and then your summer could also be dominated by swim meets and practices
