Swimming Lessons

While we were in Utah my sister Nicole suggested that we put Elise in swimming lessons with her girls.  She got to be in the same class as her cousin Ali and had a great time!  She struggled a little bit on the second day but that was her only hurdle and she was awesome after that!
Elise took her lessons at the same pool where I learned!  I hadn't been back in so long, it was fun to be back there and watch her have a fun time. 
In her beginner class they practiced jumping into the water, asking permission to get in the water, kicking and putting their head under the water. 
Here are Elise and Ali with their teacher practicing their kicks!
We have really seen a difference in her swimming and comfort with water since she took these.  Her instructor said she was ready to move on to the next level next year!  We are so proud of our little fish :)
A big thanks to Nicole- she took Elise several times for me so I could sleep, feed the baby, get dressed, etc.  It was so nice to have help and I know Elise had a wonderful time too!
