This Girl...

Has gone from being unwilling to put her face in the water to a halfway decent swimmer in a remarkably short amount of time.  Something just clicked in her brain and she is powering through her swim lessons.  She is in the pre-school beginners class right now and after today is getting moved to a more intermediate class.  She will only put her face in the water if she has goggles on, but even without going under she can tread water like a boss.  We threw her in the deep end of our pool yesterday and she got herself to the side and out safely in a manner of seconds.  

The next hurdle is to get her to jump in or go down the slide without someone having to catch her.  We'll see.

It warms my heart to see Ruby's goggles on her head. Tell her Pamma has a pool when you visit.
