Swim Class Graduate!
Abby has successfully completed the "Bubblers 1" swimming class at the same swimming pool that I took all of my swimming classes many years ago! She was more comfortable on the first night than on the last, but all of the children were breaking down at that point!
She got check marks on all of the boxes, meaning that they think she can do all of the required things to... well to continue to cling on to mom, dad or any human available. She is much better at being dunked and holding her breath, as well as kicking and moving her arms in a manner that could be considered swimming. Getting all three of those things to happen at the same time will be coming in the future, but probably not this summer!
New Words Learned from the experience: Lessons, Suit Bathing (bathing suit) and Swimsuit
