My little pink fish
This week Madeline had swim lessons with Ms. Carmen.
Last summer, she spent seven weeks learning how to swim and float, how to rescue herself or wait to be rescued.
This year, she simply needed a refresher.
Only it seems I waited "too long" to schedule it because
my little fish was already using all the skills she learned last summer before
her first refresher lesson this week. Oops.
It's been fun, though, seeing Ms. Carmen again.
She's a great instructor.
She adores the kids, and they adore her.
And I adore her, too!
And it's reassuring to hear it from somebody else that
Madeline still has "it," the ability to swim and be safe in the water.
And not only that, she's playing with her brother under water
and trying to dive for toys at the bottom of the pool.
I recently picked up some cute new swimsuits for Madeline that I "thought" she might want to model.
But as you can see from the images above, I was mistaken. lol
After enough pleading, I managed to convince her to strike a pose or two before jumping in the pool.
This pose was actually Caleb's idea.
"Hey Madeline, put your hand on your head like this."
So so funny.
I do love how she puckered her lips though.
