Adventures In Swimming (Cont.)

Posted by Heather at Friday, August 01, 2014
Last May 2013, we enrolled Katy in swim lessons at Open Water Adventures. She had a rough start that involved lots unpleasant moments for both she and I. However, she ended last summer really well- diving for dive sticks in the shallow end of our pool, doing and simple doggie paddle and able to swim enough to jump off the edge of the pool and swim back, unassisted.

Fast forward to the beginning of this summer 2014. Katy had regressed a bit over the winter (no access to pool during the cold, winter months). So, I signed her back up for more lessons. Because I wanted her to have the same teacher as last year, Ms. Rachel, we had to wait until the end of June for an opening.

Now, one month later, her teacher said that Katy can move up into the more advanced class! Talk about progress! Typically, the more advanced class that she is moving up to is for the five and older set. However, Ms. Rachel feels like Katy is more than capable of progressing. Yay! We'll finish out the summer in the new class.

This may not seem like a big deal to the outside observer, but having seen the beginning (kicking, thrashing) to where we are today (requesting to dive into the 15 ft. water, using her "windmill" arms and swimming so fast that her teacher has to actually SWIM- opposed to just walking alongside her- to catch up), this is a HUGE improvement!! So proud of our Lil' Miss!
