Sink or Swim

Lily has been taking swim lessons for three weeks now. She missed two weeks due to "the great illness of 2011." Today we were back to lessons and unsure how it would go. I like to call her swim school "sink or swim" because literally you have to swim the first day or they kind of let you sink...a little. They wear floaty "backpacks" as Lily calls them. Not only do you swim the first day, you dive off the side of the pool, and you also dive off the diving board. Let's just say the first two weeks were difficult. There were quite a few tears. She did go back each time though and this week we made it with only a tiny bit of crying. She does enjoy it, she just wants to play and splash the whole time and not have to do the work. I am sure next week will be even better. Here is a small video clip of her diving!
