I admit it, I'm not a great swimmer. I had a big fear of deep water and by deep water, I mean any place where I can't keep my feet firmly on the bottom and my head out of water. Now, that wouldn't be a huge thing if I was really tall, but I'm not, so it is a little limiting. Oh, I can swim alright, but I've never really felt comfortable in deep water.
At the end of the second lesson, her instructor (a lifeguard, thank God) asked her if she wanted to jump off the diving board? I thought she'd say no way [I would have]. But, she said Yes! She walked right to the end of that board and jumped right in -- like she'd been doing it every day of her life! Wow! I am awestruck!
Checking swimming lessons off the the list of things to get done this summer!
Yay Maddy girl! :)
